12 Months of Christmas Link Up

I am happy to announce that I have been chosen as one of the designers for a new card site.  It is called The 12 Months of Christmas Link Up   It is just what it says, a Christmas only site.  There will be a challenge each month to create a card hopefully using the owner's digital paper and a digi.  There will be different sponsors each month, but you don't have to use one of their digis.  So, come on over and check out the new site and join in.  If you make a card each month, you will have a head start on Christmas 2015.  I am looking forward to a long relationship with this DT as I love to make Christmas cards all year long.

The blog is a new one which has grown out of Lisa's old one.  Today is the crossover day.  I created this card using the freebie digi paper Lisa provided and the image from Deedee's Digis Christmas Cardinal collection.

Word Art Wednesday 12-17

Morning Peeps.  It's Wednesday and time for Word Art Wednesday challenge.  This challenge will go for two weeks because next Wednesday is Christmas Eve.  The next challenge will be on December 31st.  You can end the old year with a little challenge or start the new one.  The Scripture verse for this week is Phillipians 1:6.   The weather has been a little gloomy so I thought I would use some bright colors.  The dp is Bo Bunny.  Cardstock was in my scrap pile so no idea who makes it.  The bling is from Want2Scrap.

The first sponsor for this challenge is Deedee's Digis.  If you have been following my blogs, you know I am madly in love with this site.  I didn't use it for this card, but since I have quite a few of her collections now, you will see a lot more in the future.  The second sponsor is the Flying Unicorn store.  There's lots of good stuff and inspiration there.


Dandelion Field - The Outlawz Dec. 17

If it's Wednesday, this must be The Outlaws Sketch Challenge.  We are still being sponsored by Ching-Chou Kuik.  I chose to use "Dandelion Field" for my card this week. 
I used KaiserCraft 6 1/2 Violet Crush paper pad, Recollections cardstock and Neenah Solar White cardstock.  I colored the image with Copics.  The scalloped circles were cut with my Cameo.  The butterfly is a die cut using a Martha Stewart die.


DS4J #106

Hey Peeps.  It DS4J time again.  Our hostess for this challenge is Riette and her theme is Celebrating Something New.  Well, at this time of the year, it's nearly time for the New Year to make its appearance.  So, with that in mind, I chose to use New Year Streamers.  You can find it here in the store.  I printed it and cut it with the Cameo.  I also cut the layers with the Cameo.  I combined Copics and Wink of Stella to color the streamers and stars.  The bling is from Want2Scrap and colored with Copics to match the streamers.
