Oddball Art Christmas Reminder: ELF

Good morning!  We are expecting a snowstorm today, but no one seems to know when it's going to start or how much we're going to get or how long it's going to last.... LOL!  Welcome to New England!  So I came to work and instructed my hubby to text me when the snow starts at our house (we're expecting the snow to start earlier at our house and to get more) so I can head home.  The worst part is that it's all going to turn to rain and be muddy and ugly and gross.  We need a stretch of nice, cold weather and some snow!  I mean, come on - this IS New England!

Today we have a reminder post for you for our current challenge at:



I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:


I used image #177:  Cute Big Eye Punk Elf Tinker - don't forget to use code DTJENNB10 for 10% off your order in the Etsy shop.  Papers are from Doodlebug Designs - the little alpha cards are from Tim Holtz and the lollipop brad is from my stash.  Peace.

Oddball Art Day!

Hello friends!  Wow - it's been a while since I've blogged, but I have a really great excuse!  We bought a new home, and we moved into it about 10 days ago!  I'm in love with my new home, and I don't think I've sat down once over the past couple of weeks except to eat or sleep.  I'm exhausted, but in a good way.  I go back to work tomorrow after taking all last week off, and my commute is going to increase by about 20 minutes so it will take a little getting used to but it's a nice route and I don't even mind.  I'll share some house pics as soon as I can get some decent ones.  Our bedroom set is getting delivered tomorrow, so exciting!

Anyway - we have a new challenge for you today at:



I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

The Alphabet Challenge: Y is for YOU Choose
Creative Knockouts: Furry Friends
Inspiration Destination: Anything Goes
Not Just Cards: Anything Goes
Creative Fingers: Anything Goes

I used one of last month's new release images called Sweet Spooky Sophia, #282, and I colored it with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits.  I kept the background simple by just using a plain black cardstock with 2 strips of some fun Halloween DP from doodlebug inc.

And we also have a new release today at:


This little cutie is #291, and I colored her with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits with a bit of Stickles added in.  I'd like to add this to the following challenges:

The Pencil Case: More than One (I used clay skulls & clothes hanger clips)
The ABC Challenge: B is for B (you pick - I picked BABY)

Don't forget - if you want to grab any of the Oddball Art digi stamps in the ETSY shop, make sure to use code DTJENNB10 for 10% off your order!  

Hope you're all staying warm and dry! Peace.
