We're zinging it up at Christmas Stampin All Year Long!

Happy Monday everyone!! How was Mother's Day?? I'll share mine with you in a later post. I also wanted to share that I lost 2 pounds last week!!! Yay!!

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 usually creates super challenges for us to do but to spice things up a bit, I'm pleased to announce that Vicki of Summerthyme Studio will be hosting the challenges the 2nd week of each month!! Yay, her work is super fabulous!! This will be challenge #16.

The challenge this week is to add a little zing to your Christmas card. On the Christmas Stampin All Year Long blog Vicki asks the question: So how does one add a little Zing with Christmas Bling? Well you can use Glitter........... Red, Green, Gold, Silver.........anything that suits your fancy! Maybe add some Rhinestones or Blingy Brads, Some Pretty Embossing anything that resembles Tinsel or Christmas Lights! LOL!! So that is the challenge this week.

For my card, I used a super cute gift tag shaker to decorate my card. The shaker is filled with pretty, sparkly sequins...there's some bling!! I also used dew drops as well!! I used scraps for my card so I'm not sure who did this paper. I think it is Creative Imaginations but I'm not sure (sorry)!! The sentiment stamp is by Great Impressions (I think, I'm going to check on that and edit my post if it is by someone else.) I used a very simple style for my card but I like how it turned out. What do you think?

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 then!
