Penny Black and More - October Challenge

October already, winter is right around the corner (and is surely feels like it outside at the moment!) and so we have the perfect challenge for you this month at Penny Black and More...

Christmas Cards.

We also are having another exciting giveaway later this month, you can read more about it at the end of my post. 


And here is my creation for this month using the cute stamp "Chill Day" by Penny Black, along with a sentiment from the clear set "Holly Jolly".

 My card sketch was inspired by a beautiful card created by Mary J. I just thought this sketch would be perfect to use with the size of the stamp.

I kept the card pretty flat and simple, so it is easily mailable. 
Just stamped the image onto copic blending card using memento tuxedo ink, then colored using copic markers. Designer papers are from my stash. 

Here is another view.
I hope you'll join us this month. You may use any stamp company, just no digi images please, as they don't qualify for the prize draw. We do have several fabulous prizes to give away.

**********************

In addition to the amazing challenge prizes, we are having lots more prizes later this month, and we would love for you to share the logo below, so all your friends can have a chance at winning too.  I will be posting more details about this extra special prize giveaway early on October 12th, so be sure to check back then.  In the meantime, don't forget to add this logo to your sidebar, so you don't forget about it, and to help spread the word.

Please link the logo back to the challenge blog:
