Welcome to October & to the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club October Christmas Challenge! You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how. Bet you’re wondering what the challenge theme is..I’d love to tell you but you’ll have to go see for yourself.

My card is all on one layer, so there was a little masking going on. I started by stamping & coloring Leonard, then I masked him & stamped the pine bough to resemble a little Charlie Brown Christmas tree & added a few ornaments. I die cut the window then used a reverse mask of it to stamp the North Pole & reindeer. The snow bg was stamped w/ the tumbled glass. I thought it needed something so I stamped part of the light string on the top of the window then added stickles to the lightbulbs & snowflakes. I did a little cutting around the top of Leonard in order to insert the corner of the window frame underneath him.

Here are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s the last day of the Splitcoast Dare to Get Dirty Challenges & I made this to fit a couple of the challenges..Janine’s Challenge & Polly’s Challenge. For all the details go to the Dare to Get Dirty Forum..but you’ll need to be a Fan Club member (click the blue link to find out how).

This is probably one of the quickest cards I’ve made in a while. The bg & white frame were already made & had been hanging around in my stash for quite awhile. If I remember correctly, I brayered the inside of the embossing folder w/ a rainbow ink pad then embossed it. Party Pig is the only thing I had to do. Just colored & cut him out. His hat was the only thing that didn’t come out right. Let’s just say…beware of Copics w/ the wrong caps on them. People who have watched me color have asked why I’m so quick to put the caps back on when I’m using them. This is why. If I leave the caps off, I seem to always get them mixed up. Oh well! 

Here’s the inside & the Copics I used. (The green one was the culprit! Bad marker, bad marker!)

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC706), we have fun site of little felted animals. After much browsing, I chose THIS for my inspiration. It seems I don’t have any llama (or sheep or fox) images so I made mine all pigs.

I used Leonard & his cool gang instead of llamas. They look kind of like a DooWop group..all in step. big Billboard Leonard & all the DooWops were colored w/ Copics & fussy cut along w/ all their accessories. I had this shaving cream bg w/ the circle cut out left over from last week’s card. So I stamped some stars on top, put a white circle frame around the opening & put Leonard inside & all the DooWops across the bottom. The greeting is made of 3 different ones.

Here’s the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
