Christmas Stampin' All Year Long

Please be sure to scroll down for my other post for today!!

Hi friends! Happy Monday to you!!

It's time to get started on those Christmas cards if you haven't already!! It'll be here before you know it!! This week, Vicki of Summerthyme Studio will be hosting our challenge! Can you believe we're on week 32 and each week, we're closer to the holidays and closer to having those cards done! Vicki's challenge this week is to create a card using traditional Christmas Colors-Green, Red and a dash of silver or gold!!! We want to see your best creations. Sounds pretty simple, huh? We hope you'll play along this week! Please comment on today's post on the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog with the link to your project, SCS/PCP or online gallery. We can't wait to see what you come up with! There is a sketch if you need it on the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog but it is not part of the challenge. My camera was not liking all the red, so my pics are not very good today. I may try to re-take them if I get a chance, maybe outside.

For my card this week i used this adorable Penny Black image!! Isn't she cute!! I colored her with my copics, glitter pen, and I paper pieced the packages. I used fun flock on her sleeve cuffs to look like fur!! I used an Inkadinkado stamp for my sentiment and look at these cool clear plastic/acrylic snowflakes!! IRL they are very sparkly!! I used DCWV paper and Bazzill cardstock. To fulfill the silver or gold part of the challenge, I used silver pen to color in one of the shopping bags!! I used the wonderful Sketch Saturday sketch #66 for my card this week. I hope you like it!!

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. Again, 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.
