Curtain Call Act 60, C4C67 and I'm Guest Designing!!!

Hello sweet stampin' friends!!!

I can't believe it, but I finally have a card to share...wahooo!!! I actually have two cards today..yeah!!! My first card is for today's Curtain Call Act 60. Here are this weeks colors.....

Here is my idea.....



I combined the colors with this weeks C4C67 Sketch and this weeks ODBDSLC41 ~ I chose the snowman inspiration picture!!! I was trying really hard not to use the snowman image from the Flourishes Winter Warm Wishes again, but the ODBD Inspiration Challenge pushed me over the edge...wink!!! It was also the first stamp set I spotted on my super messy desk :) !!! I promise my next post will NOT have this image again!!!

The image was inked in Memento Black and colored with Copic Markers ~ YG11, YG95, R29, C1, E27 and Colorless Blender. The DP is from the SU Ski Slope Collection. I finished the card off with some Dazzling Diamond Glitter, some yummy Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon, matching Button and some Gold Beaded Cord.

Now it's time to check out the Curtain Call Team for their ideas ~

                                     Christina MacLaren ~ Seaglass & Sentiments
                                     Jean Martin ~ Stampin' Scrapper
                                     Julie Lacey ~ Stamps & Taxes
                                     Laurel Seabrook  ~ Seabrook Designs
                                     Makiko Jones ~ MakInk Studio
                                     Monika Davis ~ M.A.D. Stamper
                                     Piali Biswas ~ Touch of Creation
                                     Stacey Schafer ~ Stacey's Stamping Stage
                                     


and our fabulous December Guest Designer, Maureen Plut at Buttons & Bling.

Hope you have time to join us this week: :) ?!? Have fun trying these colors!!!

*****************************************************************************

My second card is very special too!!! The sweet ladies over from Gingerloft invited me to play along for their GL8 Challenge!!! The challenge is *DISTRESSING*...one of my favorite techniques to do!!!

Here is my idea.....



You all know that I'm a sucker for cute snowmen right???...and I could not resist to try this super cute digi image called Woodland Snowman!!!
After I printed the digi image I colored it with some Copic Markers ~ R14, R29, R46, E27, E47, B29, C1, C2 and Colorless Blender. Of course I had to bedazzle the snowman with some Dazzling Diamond Glitter :) !!! The DP is again from the SU Ski Slope Collection. I distressed and also ink distressed the edges with the PTI Chai Blend. At last I added the sentiment, the Enchanted Evening Ribbon, a matching SU Button, some Silver Beaded Cord and the Silver Pearls.

Hope you have time to play along in this fun challenge too??? Thank you so much for stopping by today and for always taking the time to leave me a sweet comment!!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I'll be back with a new card on Tuesday!!! Hugs ~Silke~
