This is a happy little challenge some of my dearest cardmaking friends and I invented. We pick one Monday a month (because Mondays can use a bit more color and fun), we pick a topic or challenge and we pick a recipient who we'll send our cards to.
After naming our challenge Schmonday Monday while being silly, we found out that Schmonday actually is a word for an extra day of the weekend between Sunday and Monday. I think we can all wish for Schmondays sometimes ;-)
It was my turn to pick a topic and a person. Matching the winter season, I went for "winter wishes" as our challenge theme.
As for the recipient, I choose our lovely crafty friend Tina. Tina is maybe the first dear crafty friend I found through this awesome hobby. She lives in Switzerland as well and we "met" through a DT spot. Tina is a very sweet, kind and wonderful lady. I love her humor and her honesty a lot. She's my cardmaking superhero when it comes to baby cards, her coloring is wonderful and you have to check out her pop-up boxes, they are fantastic!
I went for the no-line coloring thechnique with some colored pencils. My go-to ink for this technique is Gout Gray by MFT. My friend, Anni, recommended it and I love it! I used the "puffy clouds" dies by MFT and some Distress Inks (and masking paper) to finish up this clean and simple card.
I totally forgot to take a picture of my card before sending it to Tina but as sweet as she is, she took these pictures for me! Thanks a lot, sweetie!!!
Now it's time to see the creations Birka and Anni sent to Tina. Hop over to their blogs and have a look :-)
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a cozy day,
