Enjoy life!

Happy New Year! Now that it's the beginning of the year, our CCEE group is doing our weekly challenges each Monday again.

For this week, we're using H&M stamps that were sent to us. Well, most of us anyway. The ones I picked got lost somewhere in the mail. But I had these darling images from the Lil' Behind set. I chose this cute little chick to use, but there are many, many other cute images in this set too.

Now, H & M Stamps is having a HUGE garage sale Jan. 6-7. Their sets will be as little as $5 a piece. So go check out their store. We all love a bargain!!

Now for the card details: I stamped this lil chick with Smokey Gray (Versafine) onto Neenah Natural White CS, colored it with copics, and added some fun-flock. I mixed the yellow and white together to soften the brightness of the yellow. The circles were cut with my Nestabilties, and the borders are Martha Stewart Punches, as well as the butterflies.

To see what the others have done with their sets, click HERE. We'd love to have you play along too if you have one of the H&M sets.

Stamps - A Lil' Behind (H&M Stamps), Stampscapes (grass)
Paper - Prism
Ink - Smokey Gray (Versafine), Frayed Burlap (Ranger)
Accessories - Nestabilties (Spellbinders), Copics, Flock, Adornit stickers, K&Company Rhinestone stickers, Piercing tool, Cuttlebug folders, ribbon, dimensional tape, Martha Stewart border and butterfly punches, ribbon

I hope you have a fantastic week!!
Happy Stamping!
