Christmas Stampin' All Year Long

Happy Monday Everyone!!

Wow, what a crazy week last week and a crazy weekend too!!!I can't believe it's already August! Have you started your Christmas Cards yet? NO! (gasp) LOL! Don't feel bad, most of us haven't. If I hadn't joined Maria's little group, I wouldn't have one card done! Don't despair, you can start today by playing in our sketch challenge!! Maria has given us another fabulous sketch to use this week.


For my card this week, I used K&Co. papers, and a sentiment that I created on the computer. I used this adorable Pink Gem Designs stamp called Ice Skating Mimi and she is just the cutest thing ever!! She was so much fun to color. I cut her out with my nesties and colored her with my copics. I used Stickles for my snowflakes and the fur on her coat, hat, and pants. Super sparkly IRL. I used Crystal Effects on the water under her skates and I just love how it turned out! There are some really cute stamps at Pink Gem Designs, if you haven't been there, you should check it out!! I finished off with some pretty ribbon and gems. Simple but cute!! I hope you like it as much as I do!




Be sure to visit the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog to see what the other challenge divas have created. I also have them listed on my sidebar. It's time to get started on those cards!! 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 today. Be sure to leave me a comment so I can return the favor! Don't forget to come by tomorrow to see what I have to show you.
