A Sparkly/Shiny Christmas

2 Comments

At For Fun Challenges we will be doing a different Christmas challenge each week up till Christmas. This week’s challenge was Shiny/Sparkly Christmas. I love snowmen so when I saw these stickers I just had to have them for this challenge….didn’t hurt that they were 50% off (at Hobby Lobby). There are 4 stickers to a sheet and I plan on making up all 4 but was only able to get 2 done right now. So here is my Shiny/Sparkly cards:

I hope you can see all the sparkles on the stickers plus the shiny rick rack and gems makes it pretty Shiny/Glittery! Oh I also used shiny white cardstock.

Hope you play along with us.

Happy Birthday Mrs. Judy!!

I was soooo excited when the free image from Faith at Designed2Delight was a CUTE snowman – Catching Flakes!! I’m so glad she brought back the Free Stamp of the Month Challenge….I love her stamps. I would try out for her DT except they are crazy talented and can color her images so beautifully….so I will stick to playing along each month. Coloring is not my thing but I try. And I have fun…. which is what matters most.

So tonight I just got to play to play…no agenda… except getting it done before midnight so I can get next months stamp! Nothing like waiting till the last minute!! So here it is….

I used Tuesday Morning Sketches #172 as my inspiration. Thanks for taking a peek!

Thankful it is almost Thanksgiving Day!

I just realized that Thanksgiving is NEXT week! Where has this month….or should I say YEAR gone?! In honor of Thanksgiving the challenge at For Fun Challenge for the next 2 weeks is Thankful/Turkey Day.

I made this card to send my aunt in Oklahoma. She is one of the few relatives I have and I miss her. I don’t call her or see her enough so I decided I would try to send her more cards to brighten her mailbox. This one will go in the mail tomorrow wishing her a Happy Thanksgiving.

The image is a sneak peak at one of the new images, Decorative Flowers, that will be released at Clearly Digi Stamps (Clear Dollar Stamps) tomorrow. Stop by tomorrow to see more fun images that will released….hint….Christmas is almost here!!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will come play with us at For Fun Challenges!
