Challenge #88 - Baby it's cold outside

Happy Tuesday and thanks so much for stopping by my blog!

We have another fun challenge over at Digital Tuesday, this week our theme is

Baby it's cold outside.

Very fitting for the weather we've been having here in the midwest recently. As always you can create anything, just be sure to use a digistamp somewhere on your creation.

Our sponsor this week is Whimsy Stamps and Denise from Whimsy generously gave the Design Team some images to play with. I decided to use the image "Skiing mouse" by Meljen's Designs, available at the Whimsy Stamps store.

The image has been colored with copic markers. I sponged the edges with some bashful blue ink before adhering it to the navy mat.

Designer papers are from a retired stampin up designer paper pack. I embellished with some ribbon, punched out snowflakes and stickles glitter. Also decided to use my sewing machine for some stitching. The flourish was made with a Tim Holtz die, and the sentiment is from an old Stampin Up set.

I am also entering my card to the following challenges:

I really hope you'll join us this week, the prize is going to be 5 digital stamps of the winner's choice from Whimsy Stamps. There are so many cute ones to choose from!!

Again, thanks so much for visiting my blog, hope you stay warm wherever you are!

Have a great day,
Ellie.
