DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #211-All Wrapped Up

Hi Stampers,

Yes, I have been missing in action for 3 weeks!!! I apologize but the holidays just kind of engulfed me and I was overwhelmed (to say the least) lol. Now that they are over, I hope to be back to posting  a lot more!!!! The Stars took off the week of Christmas so we are back with a sketch challenge this week.


I love the sketch pad challenges!!! Grab your stamp set, paper and GO!!!


How versatile is this stamp set? I mean, really, using a Christmas stamp set for birthdays? Genuis idea!!  This card is the kind of card you would have to hand deliver because of the "ribbon" attached to the top. I suppose, though, you could have adhered the card closed around the outside and made this a pocket card.

The Fox and the Hedgehog

Hi Stampers,

A couple of months ago I was in Bath and Body Works (one of my FAV stores). I saw these shea infused lounge socks which I thought were just adorable. I only bought the hedgehog and fox with the intention of going back and buying the owl pair. Well, when I went back they were completely sold out-- in stores and online. At least I got the two pair, right? Aren't they cute? My upline, Dawn Olchefske, loves hedgehogs so I sent her this pair because she recently underwent knee replacement surgery.


I used the retired pillow box framelit with the cardstock folded in half to make them longer.

The Fox:



The Hedgehog:





These would make great Christmas gifts!!!
