PKC 43 :: Anything Goes

 Good morning!
If you're looking for the Thankful Blog Hop, then click HERE.

WOW!  What a beautiful morning to wake up to!
Crisp, clean and cool air, a gorgeous sunrise, and the promise of a
wonderful day!   It just doesn't get any better than that, does it?  Add to that, the fact
that it's Friday and time for another Peachy Keen Challenge, and well, I couldn't be any happier
if there were two of me!  LOL!!  Seriously!  It's always a great day when I get to create and play with paper and stamps.  There's no better reason than a great challenge, and this week,  The Peachy Keen Challenge Blog has got the ever popular "Anything Goes Challenge" to play along with. 

Here's the card I created for the current challenge.  This adorable little deer image is from the newly released PKSC-11 November 2012 Stamp of the Month set.  Drop by The Peachy Keen Stamps Store to find out how to subscribe and save BIG on these Stamp of the Month sets.  They are AWESOME!!

I used products that are part of this month's Peachy Picks Kit for the rest of the card, and that includes the card stock, patterned paper, and ribbon.  Those kits are a wonderful thing!  I just LOVE 'em!!

I colored this reindeer cutie with Copic markers, and he's popped up on the card with some foam dimensionals.   I simply cut a piece of rhinestone swirl to make the smoke from the chimney have some sparkle and bling.  I'm sharing this card over on The Peachy Keen Connection as a part of Challenge #2 (Use snow/snowflakes) for the Release Party festivities.  It might be a stretch, but there IS snow/snowflakes in the background of that paper!  ;-)  You have till Sunday to play along with the two challenges for a chance to win free stamps and a $50 gift certificate.  You can find quick links to the party and challenges on the main page. There's a GREAT tag challenge there, too! Lots of fun and SO many inspiring creations!  Join the fun today!!

If you're looking for more places to find inspiration, and a chance to win a great prize, then hop along with us for our THANKFUL BLOG HOP.  You have till Sunday to join in all that fun as well, and there are three $50 gift certificates hidden in that hop.  Winners will be drawn from the comments on ALL of the blogs included in the hop!  Don't miss it!  Our PKS Designers, both past and present have created some really amazing things for this hop, so it's a "WIN" regardless!  Hope to see you there!!!

Now that I've left you with so many places to visit and with so many chances to win, I'll wish you a beautiful day, and wonderful weekend, and lots of happy stamping!
