Have you joined in the challenge yet? ......

Happy Friday!

Time to remind you all of the current Take It Make It Challenge over on the Craft Stamper Blog.
Have you joined in the fun yet ....... or are you still going through your stamp stash to find a non-Christmas stamp to create something festive with?

Use circles and turn them into festive baubles, triangles for Christmas trees, ovals into tree lights or do you have any birds in your stamp collection?  Well why not turn them into ........
a festive robin

I've used one of the Scribbly Birds by Dina Wakley for my little guy ...... how cute is he! Quick and easy too ..... great if you're doing a lot of cards.

I stamped him in a brown Archival ink and then used Spectrum Noir pencils and Distress ink to colour him in

I added a festive greeting (and sneaked in a pretty little snowflake too!).  Then sprinkled a touch of Chunky White Embossing Powder here and there to give the look of snow.

You don't get more Christmassy than a cheeky little robin!

Are you ready to take the challenge?  Or, are you still looking for ideas?   Well, there's more fabulous inspiration from the rest of the DT on the Craft Stamper Blog today. Why not pop over, take a look, and then join in the fun.

Our sponsor this month is The Artistic Stamper .......

And as always there's a fab prize for the winner ....

You have until November 26th to get your entries in ..... and you never know, you could be adding these to your stash!  Good luck!

Speaking of Craft Stamper ......... I've been doing a happy little dance around the old craft room because ...... I've been published in my favourite craft magazine - whoo hoo!!!

You can find me in this month's Stamping Contrasts article, alongside talented members of the magazine's regular Design Team, using the gorgeous IndigoBlu stamps Snowflake Lace and Dinkie Merry Christmas Circle.

We all had the same stamps to work with ..... but each wintry design is so different.  It just shows how versatile these fabulous stamps are!

Thanks for popping by ...... enjoy the rest of your day and have a great weekend.

Cheerio until next time
