Day 49

Hello crafty friends.  Can you believe it?  Tomorrow is the half way point in my no spending, using my stash 100 in 100 days challenge.  It hasn't seemed that long.  I have a special card for tomorrow's post with a very special reason why that card was created.

Today's card is for the Creative Freebie Challenge over on The Outlawz.  The stamp was designed by Anne Fenton.  She is an amazing artist and designs some wonderful digi stamps.  Her partner is Sandra Huggett.  If you haven't already checked out this site, you are definitely missing out.

To design this card, I printed out the digi after sizing it to 3.5x5.  I used colored pencils and OMS as my medium.  I matted it on some sunny yellow cardstock with just a very small border.  The DP is from my stash.  I added a strip of blue card stock that matched the blue in the background paper.  I added some light blue seam binding ribbon to the middle.  The little deer and squirrel are from a stamp set by Rubber Stampede that my MIL found at a yardsale for 50 cents.  Yep that's right, 50 cents.  I stamped them in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them in with colored pencils.  I fussy cut them out and added them with pop dots.  The sentiment is from a GinaK Designs stamp set called Eclectic Summer Sayings.  I used pop dots on the sentiment and matted the whole thing on Whisper White Card Stock from Stampin' Up.

Thanks for stopping by today to check out my latest creation.  God bless you.
