Hey everyone! Are you starting to make your Christmas/winter cards yet? If not now is a great time to start! We have a fun challenge up on the Christmas at Sweet Stampin’ challenge blog. Its always anything goes but for an added boost, we have given you the challenge of Snow people! The DT have created some great inspiration for you and here’s mine!
I have a ton of Christmas bits and bobs on my desk which is what I used to create this card. I sometimes challenge myself to create just using what is in arms reach!
Don’t forget to play along with us on the blog too!
I decided to play along with some challenges today, including one of my own. I wanted to use up some of the stickers from this Carta Bella Flower Market sticker sheet. I used it in a class and just really liked it.
I created this fun card for the challenge over at Tuesday Morning Sketches using this sketch
I thought it turned out really well. I just used some DP from my stash to go with it!
Tuesday Morning Sketches: use the sketch

Here we are in July, but over at Christmas at Sweet Stampin’ we are still in the chills of winter! Our Christmas theme this month should you wish to accept it, is Christmas in the Sun! If you don’t want to go there, no worries, our challenges are always anything goes as long as it is Christmas!
Surprisingly, I didn’t have a lot of Christmas in the Sun images, so I went diggin on the Internet and found these adorable flamingos! I just had to get them printed off as my focal image and I paired it with some Reflections Christmas papers I’ve had forever in these pinks and greys! I kept it really simple with just some wintery sequins and snowflakes from my stash.
Come play along with us over on the blog! Show us how you keep the Christmas warm!

Hello one and all! Have you been over to Use Your Stuff yet? Our new challenge is there! We are giving you the creative spot of using stickers on your projects. I know for me, this is an underutilized element! I recently did a class when I was at crop and create and we talked about using stickers as fun elements on your projects along with other things like tags and various embellishments.
Please come on over to the blog and play along with us.
Did the title sound familiar? Have you ever watched National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation…..then you understand the title!
I picked up an awesome set of stamps from The Ink Road called Are you Serious Clark? It’s all images and sayings from the movie.
I decided to use this one for our Anything Goes with a side twist of non-traditional colors on the Christmas at Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog this week! My colors are black/white/red. The DP is from MME and I added some washi and some enamal dots for just a bit of added layers.
Head on over to our blog and join in on the fun…what will you create? Will you choose the optional challenge of non-traditional colors too??? Looking forward to seeing it!
I know it’s been awhile. Things have just been so crazy…isn’t that always the way?

Here’s my card this week…a 5×5 which I haven’t done for awhile, but I found some DP in my stash that had this really great image on it, and I wanted to utilize it for my card!
It’s not a fancy card, and it’s easy to mail but I just loved that bike! The paper is textured which gives it just another elemental layer to it, even though it is so simple. I hope you like it and don’t forget to play along with us in this challenge!
