Deck the Halls

We have a fun challenge for you for the next two weeks at Holly Jolly Christmas...Deck the Halls. When I saw this fun image from our sponsor QKR Stampede, I knew it wasn't halls I'd be decking...it would be a cactus!!! The image is called Christmas Cactus and can be found HERE. I added a bit of sparkle with the Wink of Stella pen on the lights, ornaments, and star, just wish you could see it. Sure hope you can join us at Holly Jolly Christmas for our Deck the Halls challenge.

So Cool

It's Monday, need I say more?!! Anyway, I wanted to share my card using July's Digi of the Month from Deedee's Digis. It is so cool!!! Of course I used the colored image, such a time saver. My papers I found in a stock pile of 12 x 12's that I recently uncovered. It felt like shopping all over again because I didn't remember having these. Figured this will make a good winter time get well card, when colds seem to hit with a vengeance. With this being a progressive challenge, I am now eligible for next month's digi set...can't wait to see what it is!!!

Tag, You're It!

Happy Sunday...and that means a new CAS challenge over at The Outlawz. This week our theme is tags - whether you create a tag by itself or place it on a card, we want to see a tag, clean and simple style. I'm using the digital image and papers from Imagine That! -- J'aime Paris and Paris in Summer digital papers. I die cut the digital paper with one tag die and the Eiffel Tower image with a second tag die. Fun to create, and it was quick and easy too!! Exactly what CAS is meant to be! Join us this week at The Outlawz because tag, you're it!!

A Christmas Hi

Doodle Pantry is sponsoring Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge, and their theme is Christmas in July. I had so many options to choose from at Doodle Pantry, it was hard to narrow it down to just one! I ended up going with Candy Cane Ants, because after all, nothing says a Christmas "hi" like ants sliding down a candy cane!!! I initially thought a tent card would be fun, but ended up cutting my papers for a full A2 that I just went with it. A VERY simple design, but a quickie card for sure.

Challenges I'd like to submit my card to are:
Aud Sentiments - Christmas in July
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Christmas in July
Scrapbooker PhD - Go Digital + Optional Animal
Addicted to Stamps - Clean & Simple

Be Merry

 Here we go, another fabulous sketch for you to try at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2. It's super fun, and another one to help use up scrap paper!!
Our sponsor this week is the wonderful and generous Sally Ann at Digi Stamp Boutique. She has a store full of adorable images...take a moment for a look. You'll have your cart filled up in no time. Our winner this week will receive a £10 voucher.

Here's my card, using the sweet image Hattie and Buddy. How fun to have a friend to go out in the snow with!! Yes, I forgot the three embellies in the bottom right corner. That just shows you how lazy I really am...I certainly could have put them on and taken a new picture, but I didn't!! Pitiful indeed!! I sure hope you can join us this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

I am submitting this card to the July customer competition on the Digi Stamp Boutique blog.
