Christmas Stampin' All Year Long

Happy Monday everyone!!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend! We're about to float away here. It has rained everyday of last week and all weekend! We are soggy to say the least!! Can you believe we are on Challenge 35 at Christmas Stampin' All Year Long?? Wow, it's hard to believe that 35 weeks have gone by, time flies!

This week at the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog ,
Sankari is our lovely and talented hostess and is challenging us to make a Christmas card with non Christmas colors (meaning - no red, green or blue) something totally different. Ok this is certainly interesting but not too difficult for me!! I think I do that almost every week!! I seem to think that pink goes with every holiday except maybe Halloween! LOL. Stay tuned though, I'm still making Halloween projects and pink may turn up yet!! You never know!!

Anyway, for my card this week I was running a little low on mojo and time to color so this is what I came up with for our challenge. I used the new Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses. OMG this may be one of my all time favorite BG releases! That's saying a lot because I seem to have a bit of a Basic Grey collecting problem!! I love them all but this one is special. (Hubby says I say that about every sheet of paper that comes out!!) Have you seen it? Very yummy!! I made a very simple, sweet card using my Elzybells stamp. I colored her with copics and used a glitter pen to make her sparkly. I used SC246 for my card.

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.
