Reminder: TIME OUT Challenge # 100

Hi there everyone!! Sorry I haven't been blogging much lately. My digital camera has finally given up the ghost and I've been trying to put photos from my Iphone on the blog....what a nightmare!!! Its driving me insane and takes forever to get one photo to work, so looks like I'm going camera shopping this weekend....

I was wanting to remind you about our current TIME OUT challenge where we want to inspire you with the word 'Thankful'. Its a good way to start out a new year, being thankful for many things. For me I'm very thankful for still being part of this TIME OUT team, they are incredibly supportive and wonderful designers too. I'm looking forward to seeing what your thankful for!!

Our Sponsor for this challenge is Verve Stamps and they are offering the winner the choice of a stamp set from their store. I'm so jealous!!

For my card I'm still playing around with some of my Christmas stamp sets as I didn't get to use them as much as I wanted:

These foxes look so happy together, just like you would be with a loved one, especially a supportive one!!

I started off by stamping this fox image on white CS, colouring with pencils and then fussy cutting out. I used the background die on some white CS and adhered to the card front. Using different sized solid heart stamps and Hero Arts 'Bubblegum' dye ink, I stamped the hearts into as many holes as I could. I then gave them all a coating of Wink of Stella. I stamped the sentiment on a strip of white CS, popped it up on foam tape along with the fox image, and glued on some sequins for a bit more shine!!

The larger solid heart is from Winnie and Walter 'From the bottom of my heart'. The rest of the products are from Neat and Tangled. The foxes from 'Merry Kisses', the sentiment from 'Scandinavian Prints' and the two smaller hearts from 'Say Yes to Donuts'. The sequins are from Neat and Tangled also.

You have until Wednesday 17th January to link your projects to the TIME OUT challenge. And don't forget to check out the blog where you'll see beautiful inspiration from the rest of the Design Team and our Guest Designers Bobby of Bits and Pieces and also Julee of Poetic Artistry and the owner of Verve Stamps.  Can't wait to see what you come up with in the Gallery!!

Take care
