Your Next Stamp Challenge #50~Song Inspired!


Oh the weather outside is frightful LOL!   Yes it is frightful~frightfully HOT!  The new challenge at Your Next Stamp is to create something that is inspired by a song.  I was in the mood to create a Christmas card, so I pulled out one of my very favorite YNS images~Tobogganing Ellie.  Isn't she the cutest?!  The dp is Echo Park Paper Co. Wintertime.  I colored Ellie with some Copics and sponged around her with PTI Aqua Mist.  The sentiment is computer generated. 

The prize up for grabs for this challenge is this adorable set:


Boris From Russia!  We hope you'll play along with us, and we can't wait to hear what songs inspire you! 

That's it for me today!  My mom is coming down for a visit this afternoon so I need to do a little cleaning!  Thank you so much for stopping by and have a terrific Wednesday!
