Monday Morning Challenge No. 3

Happy Monday everyone, and welcome to another Monday Morning challenge. I can't believe the month of January is almost over!
Thanks to everyone that played along in last month's "New Somethings" challenge. It was fun seeing all your entries.

I am making it very easy this month, as the theme is simply

"anything goes".


A few things to remember:
It must be a new creation
You must mention my challenge and link back here in your post
Combine with other challenges as you wish
You may enter up to 4 times
(As last month, unfortunately due to postage costs, winners will be chosen from USA entries only.)
I have two cards to show you today. 

The sketch above (which I found on pinterest) is perfect for using up paper scraps. Each scrap is a 1" square. The cute postman hedgie has been fussy cut after coloring.

Stamps used:
(all 3 from the  NEW Love and Friendship collection
available in my shop)


I went with a springtime theme on the card above. The cute bunny stamp is a wood mounted rubber stamp from Penny Black, also available in my shop. It's been colored with copic markers.

Stamps used:
Bees and Bunny, sentiment from older clear Penny Black set (Wonderful)

This month I am giving away two cute sheets of Stickeroos to one lucky, randomly selected winner. 


You have until Saturday, Feb. 21st 10PM central time to play along. A new challenge will be posted on Monday, February 23rd. 
Simply link your card using in-linkz below. If in-links in unavailable simply leave a comment with link to your blog.

Happy Stamping!!

Both of these cards are so cute. I love the hedgie and you colored him so well. Great idea to use up scraps too. The little bees hovering above the flower are darling.

Hello Ellie: your cards are so beautiful, the layouts are adorable, this little critters just melt your heart.
I want to thank you for the sweet words you left on my blog post with the little Fairy, I'm just so new at blogging, not even 2 months but I really like it. I wish I could post more often but I don't have a lot of time, since I take care of my grandkids, my mother and also, my Triathlon training.
I have another card that it's almost finished so it will be posted in a day or two.
Thank you again, so much for visiting and I hope you will come again.
Many hugs.
Maria.
