Challenge # 5 - A Spoon Full of Sugar

Hi All,

Well I guess that when you get to see this post, you will know that I am back from holidays and workin' again :-(
Wish the holidays could have gone on for a few more weeks!! My family and I (minus my hubby...) went to Clear Lake, Manitoba for some relaxin' last week. All together there were 8 of us, and 3 dogs in a tiny 3 bedroom cabin. I have to admit, last year I was kind of sad that my whole family seemed to wait till I moved away, and then all got puppies, but now after spending almost a week with the 3 puppies, I sure am glad that I have my dogs. Harlee and Wynter are the most amazing dogs in the whole world....I might just post a couple of pics of my dogs later this week!!


Now on to the card......


This card is for the fifth challenge over at A Spoon Full of Sugar. The challenge this week it to incorporate checks into your card. I found this challenge a hard one, because I don't have alot of paper with checks around. However when checking out my stash, I found alot more then I thought I had!

Now it's your turn, go here for details, I can't wait to see what you all come up with this week.
Thanks so much to Nikki for the stamped image. I love this image and am so glad that you shared it with me!!

Stamps: Elizabeth Bell - Summer Ice Cream, Hero Arts - You Hoo Owl
Inks: Versafine black, Versamagic Jumbo Java
Paper: Imagine that textured cs, K&Company cs, unknown dp
Accessories: Making Memories buttons, prima flowers, may arts ribbon


Image is colored with prismacolor pencils and OMS, and the card was machine stitched

I will be back in a day or two....I hope!! For now, have a great day!!
