I'm waiting for you! Copic Creations Challenge #14, Basic Grey Challenge Week 6

Today is beautiful here in New England! I was afraid that Fall was just going to skip us this year! It snowed yesterday, a lot. I always like the first snow fall but not until Fall has passed. This whole week is suppose to be gorgeous and I have Friday off. Friday night I get to go to our LSS customer appreciation party with my sister Peggy. This is going to be a great week I think.

This card was made for two challenges, the first one being Copic Creations Challenge #14, Black.
I am not much of one to practice using certain colors like black and greys. I only pull them out when I have to color something those colors. I love Tink from High Hopes but I done use the stamps I have of him often. I just got this Tink in late Dec. last year after the holidays. I figured he would be perfect for this challenge because he looks so sweet.

The second challenge is the Basic Grey Challenge week 6, a color challenge, red, green and blue.
I love the Basic Grey Holiday paper pak. They are not your traditional Holiday colors so it is really fun to use them. I really tried to match my blue back round with the blue holly in the DP so it would "pop" a bit more. Do you think it does? I had to create my saying on the computer because I couldn't find anything good to use in my stamp stash. I dressed it up with Rubber Stamp Tapestry stamps.

Stamps: High Hopes, Rubber Stamp Tapestry
Paper: SU Kiwi Kiss, Bravo Burgundy, Memento White, DP Basic Grey
Ink: Copics, Kiwi Kiss, Real Red
Accessories: Nesties, MS Punch, Stickles, Amuse Pearl Stickers, Recollections Sticker Pearls, LSS Ribbon

Thank you for stopping by to see what I created for these challenges. I would love to know what you think.

Have a wonderful day,
