ABC Toys & Crafts First Challenge

ABC Toys & Crafts is running its first challenge this week..."I love you......Sweetheart"  So I chose to use this fabulous Sarah Kay image called "Can I tell you a secret?"  I am so excited that ABC has decided to carry Sarah Kay stamps, I just love these little kids. 

I began by making a side step card, I stamped the kids with Memento black ink onto Cryogen paper.  Copics used:
Boy's Jeans - B91
Patches - YR21, G40, BV11
Hair - E13, E19
Shoes - E33, E37
Girl's Dress & Bow - RV23, R25
Shoes - C3, C5
Hair - E33
Skin - E000, E00, E02

Here is a scan of the card from the side, I love this fold.  It works great for displaying photos or as a gift card holder.  The heart embellishments are from K&Company, the DP is from Archivers.  This is a normal A2 size card, 4.25 x 5.5 inches.

Well the card looked kind of lonely so I decided to make another candy holder.  For this I used QBee's Flower Pot Box template  I printed it on the back side of my card stock then just cut it out and added DP.  Very quick and oh so easy. 

So hurry on over to ABC's Toys and Crafts blog to enter the challenge for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to the store.

Sandy, this is just delightful -- both the card and the "candy" pot. The stair step is perfectly executed. I was just trying one for the first time last night -- not as successful!
