A STINKY challenge

OOPSIE! I hit the post instead of the schedule button so this published early! Instead of deleting it...just pretend that you are reading this on Monday! K?

It's Monday (again!--doesn't there seem to be a few in a week?) and time for another CCEE challenge. This week was a supplies challenge and Tosh sent out the skunk image (Pun Fun- SU!), the scalloped ribbon, the dp, a set of sentiments and the die cuts to each of us.

We were to make a card using all the supplies and send it (optional) to Laurie, who HATES skunks (I am right there with her!). Nice Tosh! But, of course I had to play along because Laurie has tortured Tosh because she doesn't like monkey stamps. (Believe me---she had this comin'!)

I colored the image with Copics and cut out one of the flowers from the dp to attach over the stamped one. This was an easy way to coordinate the image with the paper. I added some pink to the stinker's cheeks and then added some stardust glitter over it for a bit of sparkle.

<--Here is a close up of the main image. Hope you enjoy all your skunk cards, Laurie! (Blame Tosh!) You can check out all of the other Skunky cards on the CCEE blog.

Other news: By now you have had time to check out Stamp TV. I just wanted to let you know that starting this week you can play along in daily challenges. Everyone who plays each challenge will be entered to win free stamps. It is that easy! Today's challenge is a color challenge. You can play along HERE!

Other other news: PaperTemptress is having a PAPER party on Wednesday at 8 p.m. Central on the forum on PaperCraftPlanet! Come and chat with the design team and see all the gorgeous samples used with the new paper that will be released in the store that night. Beautiful stuff.

Thanks for stopping by!

That's okay... all day last Thursday I was saying TGIF! LOL

This card is so sweet. I love the hinges. This also reminds me how much I love this stamp set. I'll have to pull mine out to give it some love.

Cammie, would you be willing to donate one of your beautiful works of art for the Victorian Bushfires fundraiser? The deets are on my blog: http://lisahjulberg.blogspot.com/2009/02/we-need-your-help.html

Thanks so much for considering this... and have a great Monday!

Very cute. You do such a great job with the Copic markers. I'll just pretend it's Monday. Shoot with my memory these days, I'll forget I read it and come back on Monday anyway.

Awe Cammie... even skunks need a little love. Just think of them as purveyors of bad garlic.

My poor cat is still mourning the loss of her skunk friend (living next to a highway gives lots of opportunities to mourn the fleeting life of wildlife). The two of them used to sit under a full moon and stare at the stars swaying to some inner music. Generally the skunk sat under the deck and Sandycat on the deck and they talked through the wood. Very strange but kinda sweet. Have to agree though they're not so stinkin sweet when you see them walking through your front door (really gotta get a screen door so enjoying the night air isn't quite so risky!).

Thanks for sharing - Jean

This is so cute! I love your coloring and that awesome dp! The hinges are so cool too! Super cute!

Should I tell you that you can unpost this without deleting? For future reference...put the post back into edit mode and then change the post options. It takes a minute or two for it to update. And I know this because I did it with a challenge last week that isn't suppose to show up until tomorrow! Should I shut up now?
