Emma Canning Monthly challenge



So glad to be home again. I'm sure most of you have seen and heard about all the damage from Hurricane Sandy in NY and NJ. Thank goodness we were spared from major damage, so many people lost their homes and everything, it's so sad. We just had some down tree limbs and loss of power for 9 days. We took the kids to my inlaws house, since it was too cold to stay here. I haven't been around blogland or on my own blog for the past two weeks because of this. But I'm back! It feels good to get crafty again and back to normal. Nice to have power and heat too!

I missed posting this card for November 1st over at the Flat Friends Challenge Blog, the second monthly challenge is up! The challenges will run monthly and the prize is four Flat Friends digi images to one random winner. You can find all the details on the challenge blog. 

If you haven't seen these fun images from Emma Canning yet, check them out at Polka Doodles, they are just so cute and hip and fun to color.

Our challenge is Dots and Stripes. Here is a cute little graphic from Emma to inspire you.


For my card I used the Christmas Camper image. I love this cute little VW van. So retro and fun. 

Pop on over to the Flat Friends Challenge blog and check out the creations from my design teamies (I've had a peek and they are amazing). Hope you will take some time to play along, you've got the whole month!
