My Featured Stamper Card and a Giveaway!

Good morning and happy Monday to you all! What a glorious weekend it was here. The weather was just perfect for being outdoors. Riley and I did lots of walking and ball playing this weekend. I love the time change, although it will greatly cut into my after work walk time with her.

Squigglefly had an awesome release this weekend with artwork from three new artists! Meytal, Rachel Goble, and Gemma Mortlock all joined Squigglefly and have artwork in the store now. Be sure to go by and see all the wonderful new images!

Yesterday was another Featured Stamper challenge at Splitcoast Stampers, and of course I played! I love the Featured stamper challenge! the card I picked was This One, and if you are a fan of Squigglefly digital images then you can probably guess what image I picked to CASE this card.



If you guessed Seasonal House On A Hill by artist Rich Davis, then you were right! I love the set of five different houses and when I saw the card in the gallery I knew the winter house would be perfect!

I colored the image with copic markers and added some Snow Tex for the snow. The sentiment is one that will be available at Squigglefly soon. Speaking of Rich Davis, he has graciously allowed me to host a give away of his Pick and Draw game, and on top of that he will send the winner an original signed piece of his artwork!

You've heard me talk about the Pick and Draw game before, and how it's a fun family game and great for taking along for travel. I think it's a great game to have in your purse to help entertain kids while having to wait at any appointment. It would make an ideal stocking stuffer or gift for teachers or anyone with young children , and right now Rich is having a special where you can buy one and get more at a discounted price. But as I said earlier I get to give a Pick and Draw game away! If you would like to win this game, just leave me a comment telling me why you'd like to win it. I'll announce the winner on the 20th of November, so that gives you a couple of weeks to get those comments in!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today, and I wish you a day full of all things wonderful!

Ouuuu! This is THE most wonderful. I just bought this set & am in love with it. I never thought of puffy snow. It looks so sweet & wintery! Your sentiment is perfect too. Pick & Draw game sounds fun. No need to enter me in the draw though since, sadly, all the kidlets in our circle are grown up. Good luck to everyone else though. And thanks for the gorgeous inspiration!

They already expect Mimi to have fun craft projects for them when they come to my house...always looking for fun things for us to do together. Best wishes to everyone :)

Cute card Holly. The snow and sky are lookin' good here.

Why would I want to win Rich Davis'game? What better way to get the kids having fun when we are in the car, or waiting somewhere? Much better than the bickering game! Also, they like to draw.

Have a happy week Holly. :)

I've never heard of this game, but would be a great gift for my daughter for her grade 3 students.
Your recent cards are just georgeous with all the coloring. Squigglyfly sure has some great drawings.

Hi Holly,
What a wonderful card - that scene is so, so adorable - colored wonderfully! I don't have many games any longer at home - my son is 37 and my grandson is 15. However, I am going to be babysitting my great nieces and nephews (what did I get myself into?) - they are 7, 5 and 4!! Thanks for sharing - whoever wins - will be doing a happy dance.
