Default F4A352 Relax! 11/18/16

Hi all! Stamperrobin aka Robin Clendenning here.

Itís my turn to host the Free 4 All Friday Challenge this week.

F4A352 Relax!

My challenge to you: Since November and December are hectic months we want to see what you do to relax, what you like to do on days off or to mellow out, show us something that represents chill time.

Just for fun
(optional, in NO WAY mandatory) add doodles to your card. *For anyone new to these challenges, this extra imaginary points option is just for your own fun and your own personal challenge IF you choose to.

Keyword F4A352

F4A352 Gallery

Sample team:
Susie Australia
f.schles
Stamperrobin
Thank you so much ladies!

Uploading: Remember the keyword is without spaces. Use a comma between keywords with a space after each comma.

If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!

Need help linking a card? Follow these instructions!

1. Open 2 windows: One window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Got to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.

Super challenge Robin. I needed a card for my brother who is always on the go but was out of work for a couple of weeks and even while out of work he was always up and doing something. I know it was about us relaxing but this was such a fun relaxing image I just had to use it.

Both of these challenges were so much fun!

MIX called for stencils for backgrounds - great challenge Marilynn!

F4A called for what we like to do during 'chill' time. I love to read! Great challenge Robin!

Heart F4A352 WT610 So Dog-Gone Cute

Great challenge Robin- so appreciated! I went with an scene showing a cute guy relaxing with his dog- that's my idea of relaxation! Added a dog, masking a stamp from SU's Night Before Christmas as I can't find my MFT dog stamp. Added a hand stitched holiday border, and a washi tape border. Did a bit of doodling, and propped up my dog image (WT610). Here's So Dog-Gone Cute

I love to relax by making cards! Of course, it's my favorite thing to do! I also like to just sit and look at nothing at all while sipping my hot tea. During this time of year I like to add in a christmas tree and some christmas music. However, my son just had surgery on both of his knees, so there is no relaxing for me. I did, however, enjoy looking at everyone else's lovely creations! Relax on!

LOVE this challenge, Robin - partly because I needed to get a few more cards done to finish my quota for October for the Christmas Card Challenge and October's suggested theme is anything that speaks of relaxation such as a cozy fire, a cabin in the woods, a relaxing activity, etc. But also because I love to relax!

One of my favourite relaxing activities is knitting and what better place than in a country cabin in the winter. So I've done two variations using a stamp of a little cabin and one using a knitting theme. Hope you don't mind me listing three cards!

Cabin in a Square

Cabin in a Rectangle

Winter Knitting

Thanks, Robin!

Fun challenge Robin. I have to agree with everyone who said playing with stamps and ink is relaxing. Here's my card, focusing on someone else's idea of relaxing.
