Santa's Wild Ride

For this week's challenge at QKR Stampede, I made a card using a QKR digi image (Q-digi13709 Roping Santa) that you can find at The card actually went together pretty quick since it involved no coloring [which is definitely NOT the norm for this coloring lovin' crafter.] The background is made from a scrap of red bandana fabric [from my mom's fabric stash. She was a quilter so had quite the stash] and a piece of vinyl wallpaper that looks like embossed leather [found a roll of this beaut at the local Goodwill.] I decorated the inside sentiment with a few left-over scraps and the sentiments are computer generated.
PS Stop on by the QKR Stampede where the weekly challenges are always Anything Goes and prizes are awarded (
Am entering this into a few challenges including Simon Says Monday Challenge ["B" is for… Bandana] and Outlaws Monday Greetings [card includes red… and also how could I NOT submit this to a challenge at a blog named "Outlaws"?]

This card, created with an adorable free coloring sheet from Kate Hatflield Designs [] was made for a few challenges- If You Give A Crafter a Cookie [lots of red and white to reflect the candy canes in the photo inspiration], Bugaboo Stamps Holiday Chaos week, Day 2 challenge- Recipe [I chose the first "ugly sweater" requirements: two layers, polka dots and color red. Am hoping that the two layers doesn't include the card base?] and the current Coffee Lovers Blog Hop [lots of coffee cups in this cute image.] The inside sentiment is a freebie from TLC Creations (

The Butterfly Challenge is doing something fun in December for Christmas, hence the letter "X" [for Xmas. Oh, and here is a neat factoid- X represents the Greek letter for Christ. So, Xmas is actually an appropriate abbreviation for Christmas!] For the challenge in December, instead of including a butterfly on our cards, we are to include a fairy, elf or pixie and the theme can be anything we want. Once again, I am using my Penny Black Fairy Sweet Clear Stamp Set to make this card. [I used to earlier this week and a stamping friend commented that the fairy looked like a Mo Manning design. So I did some research and found out that it is one of Mo Mannings little cuties. I'm figuring that Penny Black must have a license with Mo to sell her sweet images.]. Made this card with a gate fold [so can enter it into the Outlawz Thursday Challenge]. The sentiment on the front is from the Fairy Sweet stamp set and the inside sentiment is computer generated.
