Christmas Stampin' All Year Long

Good Morning!! I want to thank you all for the kind words and support as I heal my poor eyes from their terrible dryness!! Wow, they really hurt when they are that dry. I can't believe I have tiny little cuts on them. Eww!! So be sure to use artificial tears if you're eyes are dry! Ok, that's my public safety announcement for today!!

It's Monday, and that means that it's time to share another Christmas card!! At Christmas Stampin' All Year Long, we create Christmas cards every Monday. By the time November rolls around, we'll have a whole bunch of Christmas cards ready to send out!! That spells out a lot of stress relief for me! Our fabulous leader, Maria has created another super sketch for us to use. This will be sketch #11. This is a great sketch.

I flipped the sketch to fit my stamped image. I used a Stampendous stamp for my image. I stamped it with Memento ink and colored it in with my Copics. Did you know that Susana's Custom Art & Card Design carries Memento ink and Copic bundles? Be sure to check it out. I used Die Cuts with a View paper and Bazzill cardstock. I used Colorbox ink to ink around my main image. I used my circle nestie to cut out the scalloped circle that I tied my ribbon through. Susana's also has a huge selection of Spellbinder Nestabilities dies. I discovered a huge selection of them while I was looking for some other supplies. Of course I had to place an order!!! I couldn't just pretend they weren't there!!

This is the funky no flash view that shows where I painted my image with Shimmerz. IRL the Shimmerz looks great. You can also load up on Shimmerz at Susana's in lots of different colors.

Be sure to visit the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog to see what the other challenge divas created. I also have them listed on my sidebar. We'd love for you to play along, just leave a comment and a link to your creation on the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog or if you upload to SCS or PCP, use the keyword CSAYL.

Thank you for stopping by my blog. Be sure to come by tomorrow to see what fabulous creation I have for you. See you tomorrow!
