Stamp & Create Product Spotlight & High Hopes Challenge

Happy Tuesday! I am a little behind in my postings. My little guy fell in the school yard yesterday morning and hit his head quite hard. I took him to the ER and there we were for 6 hours. He is perfectly fine. No concussion or ills effects and the nasty bump has gone down considerably. It was very scary but thankfully he is fine.

Boys. There is never a dull moment with them. I hope that my post makes sense because I AM sleep-deprived after waking Mr Magoo  every two hours to make sure he was alright.

This week, the product Spotlight over at Stamp & Create is the adorable stamps by Crafters Companion called: SWALK. They are really very sweet and I love the whimsical look to them.

That means all SWALK stamps will be on sale 25% off through Sunday. What a great deal! Here is my sample card:

Whiff of Joy 2010 - Page 195

I used the SWALK stamp Old Friend. I colored up the image with my copic markers and added Diamond stickles to the flower centers. I created the bow using the Bow Easy and this wonderful Olive Silk Ribbon. A couple of Prima Flowers were the final touch. The inside of the card has the rest of the sentiment which reads" to grow an old friend". I forgot to take a photos :(

My next card is for this week’s High Hopes Challenge which is “country”. I took the opportunity to ink up and color this sweet bovine couple “American Cowthic” and almost died laughing as I added this hilarious sentiment “Love One An-Udder”!

I had already colored up my image over the weekend so last night I literally whipped this card together! I used some Nestie Labels dies, the paper is from Basic Grey Nook & Pantry which you can find ~here~ and the gingham ribbon can be found ~here~.

I hope you can find the time to join our challenge! The random winner of this challenge can chose 3 High Hopes stamps of their choice!!! Not 1 but 3!!!

Fab cards as always Jeanette, love the sentiments you've used on the old friend one.
Hope the little man is feeling better today, my lad was always running and tripping and banging his head, as you say, never a dull moment with boys!
