Everything but the Kitchen Sink Challenge!

Welcome to another Everything but the Kitchen Sink Challenge. Our challenge this week is:Yes! Toothpicks!! We cannot wait to see what you guys make! There are so many possibilities! So go here to play along! There is an amazing prize this week, too! :) Also, did you see the winner and domestic divas for the last challenge? Check it out here!

So here is my toothpick creation! I broke them in half and colored them with a chocolate chip Stampin' Spot thingy. I adhered them all together with Crystal Effects on to the card base. I then stamped some flames with my campfire stamp from A Muse and cut them out and adhered them with Crystal Effects too. I really like how it turned out! It was fun to work with the toothpicks. Just watch out for splinters! Haha! :)
I made the marshmallow with liquid applique. So fun! The snow hill is just Stickles spread on card stock. That cutie penguin is Hero Arts, of course!

I cannot wait to see what you all make! I know you will knock our socks off! So come along and play with us! Also, check out the other EbtKS girls cards for inspiration!
You may notice that Kelley's blog is not on that list. It is because she is going through a difficult time that you may have read about on her blog. I urge you to pray for her, send her good thoughts, whatever it is that you do for someone that needs your love. Kelley is the sweetest girl around, and I know that she would appreciate your prayers and good thoughts. I love you, Kelley. Big big hugs to you.
