It's Monday and time for a new challenge at the Kaboodle Doodles blog.
This week's challenge (#200) is "Start of winter". Our sponsor this week is Eureka Stamps.
Here's the card that I created for this week's reveal.
I used "snowman block" from the Eureka Stamps store and you can find it here. I wanted to keep my card basically black and white to really showcase the stamp. The background of this stamp is black plus I matted it with black cardstock.
I used black cardstock as the base of my card and embossed a piece of white cardstock with snowflakes. I had some pretty black lace in my stash and I just got this beautiful pink and white gingham ribbon. I just love how the pastel colors stand out against the black and white.
Here's a close-up photograph I took of my card.
If you'd like to enter a "start of winter" project, just pop on over to the blog and join us. The randomly drawn winner will receive 5 stamps from the Eureka store.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Hello and happy Monday. Our challenge at Eureka Stamps this week is "Button It Up".
Here's the card I created for this week's challenge.
I used October Afternoon red and white checked paper for my background. The adorable stamps are digi 34801 "Christmas Kitties" and digi 34802 "Meowy Christmas". I made this card for a very special friend who loves cats. The buttons are also from OA and I just got this awesome thick twine in a surprise RAK.
Here's a close-up:
I distressed all around both images for an extra "pop". Here's one more close-up:
Since it's a "button challenge", here's a close-up of one of the buttons:

We've gone to every other week at Sunny Side Up Creations.
This week's challenge is "Silly".
Here's the digital layout I created:
Guess who? LOL Doesn't this layout scream "Silly"?? If you don't want to take the time to read the journaling ~ I can't get the duster out without Asher trying to take it away from me. Sometimes, I just let him "dust" to keep him busy. I was letting him dust one day and looked up and he had his mother's sunglasses on while he was dusting.
He's a silly little boy ~ what perfect pictures for the "Silly Challege".
If you'd like to play along, link up right on the blog.
Thanks for stopping by today.
