Its a Challenge Blog Hop with Peachy Keen Stamps!


Imagine my surprise the other day when Kathy from Peachy Keen asked me to be a Guest Designer for a Challenge Blog Hop! Well, here you go! A Spinning Elf card using a challenge sketch! I used the Snickerdoodle Elf from Peachy Keen Stamps, and Kathy provided the sketch. I love coloring these stamps! This elf is just the cutest little guy! I used my old standby...colored pencils and odorless mineral spirits. Plus, I added some glitter to his outfit.

So he spins around..with a little coaxing! I am determined to figure out how to make him spin better....so you will be seeing more spinning elves on this blog! Here is a video...also a link to YouTube in case the video does not work ...




You know...after these two short little videos I want a video camera...oh santa!!

So stop by the Peachy Keep blog for more info on the Challenge Blog Hop! I am sure there will be some wonderful cards from the Design team and Kathy...they are an outstanding team!
