Playing catch up

My plan for the new year was to make time for stamping but this last week I just wasn't able. Trying to keep up with my job training and being ill with an infection of some sort I did absolutely nothing since my last writing. The week started out with a trip to the doctor because my nose was twice its normal size, bright red and caused great pain. I went to work and then to bed. But this week is starting out way better. Training is finished finally and I will be back in my own store next week. My nose is normal size once again and tomorrow I go for a follow up and lab results so maybe I'll find out what caused it. So it's back to card making.
This first card was actually made last week but I never got it posted. It's for The Stamping Vacation challenge " Use an animal embellishment ".

Animal Stamp is from Whipper Snapper. I used Prisma pencils and Gamsol to color. Sentiment is Great Impressions.

The next one is also for a challenge at The Stamping Vacation. A Monochromatic card "BROWN".
 Stamp is Penny Black. It is also colored with Prisma Pencils and Gamsol. Paper is from SU except for the top piece behind the image. That is a scrap of a background technique sprayed with gold webbing.

This last one is for a funny Stamping Vacation challenge  " an animal with eyebrows".

The chicken is from Art Impressions. I used Copic markers to color it. The sentiment is from Great Impressions.

I was certain I had already left a comment for these amazing cards. But they are so terrific I would love to comment again. :-) Just love the images used on all of them and the different layouts you have used. Thanks for joining in all the challenges at Stamping Vacation
