Paper Smooches Sparks Final Challenge: there's snow one like you




Poppin' in here speedy quick on this windy, rainy Halloween....I hope it clears up for all those trick or treaters...we have 2 bags of candy from Costco that we need to give out!

Disclaimer:  No snow peeps were harmed for this card

cardstock:  stampin' up basic black, ranger watercolor  stamps:  paper smooches cool dudes/crystal clear & sentiment sampler  ink:  ranger archival black  other:  paper smooches/cool dudes dies, peerless watercolors, mme wood dots

So, if you've been following me, you know that I'm a sketch-a-holic.  I've been so busy with DT work this year that I haven't been able to necessarily play as much as I generally do.  I did want to make sure that I participated in the FINAL Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge.  So sad to see this challenge go away :(

Check out the last Designer Draft:




I had so much fun watercoloring this morning...yes, this morning.  I didn't make this for anyone specific but wouldn't it be perfect for someone expecting their 2nd child.  It would take a special person to not get grossed out by the girl being in the mason jar....Non-crafty peeps might not 'get that'.

Over the years, I've entered several Paper Smooches Sparks Challenges....Here are a couple of my favs:







I'd love to see some of your favs that you've posted!

  5. Love your card for the final Sparks, but I love how you gave us a reminder of your favourite cards. You really tackled the sketch and I love your design. I hope you get lots of cute trick or treaters. Tonight I am not expecting any, not that we live in the country it is not likely--I have candy just in case and it won't go to after! Last year in the subdivision we had 250!
