Santa's Naughty List

Sorry I’m a bit late posting this week. I was notified on Monday that a continuation application for one of our federal grants is due tomorrow. It's required in order to be awarded another $125,000 for the coming year. So…. it is consuming my time.  I’ll post the card I made for Pennys with a few details and add the supplies list once I get the grant report submitted hopefully later today. 
UPDATE- Thursday PM- Got the application finished and submitted with five hours to spare. Yay! Now am heading to bed then have a few days off to play!

It's Wednesday! So time for another challenge at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog where challenges are always Anything Goes and prizes are awarded from one or more sponsors.  Stop by the blog to check it out! The sponsor this week is Bugaboo and my DT card features a fun image from a set named “Stella ‘I Tried’” Christmas List” I had fun coloring Stella Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen. Plaid paper, some bright photo corners, and rhinestones on her eyeglasses and earrings give the card a festive feeling. The inside sentiment is from a Beccy’s Place digital set named “Grumpy Goose.” (It seemed appropriate for Grumpy Stella, too!})

I fell in love with this wonderful scripture card when I saw it. And, since it is from TLC Creations and is a freebie, I quickly added it to my digi collection. I added a bit more depth to the flowers by shading them with a grey marker, tore along the edges and layered it atop several colors of cardstock. Sheer ribbon and a lovely silver key finish off the work of art!  
Am entering this card into several challenges including Incy Wincy Designs (my name starts with K… so I used a Key!)

·    Inside sentiment- Beccys Place Digi Set (Seasonal Windows)
