Uh-oh!!

Oh my. I had SO much to do yesterday, getting ready to travel to my daughter's for Christmas! I thought I'd be smart and schedule my Impression Obsession designers' challenge to post early, so I wouldn't have to worry about it yesterday. Well, I have a well known technical disability (lol); I must have done something wrong, because when I checked this morning, I found that it didn't post! So, I'm posting it today.

This card was created to fit the following additional challenges: Monday's Cuttlebug Spot's challenge is to do a winter card, the Wednesday Cuttlebug Challenge is glitter, the Cute Card challenge is "swirly girl"), the Project Tuesday challenge is to create an easel card, the Creative Card Crew challenge is to create a Christmas card, the Pick Three challenge is also all about glitter. [My three are: colour an image in glitter (see the ornament), outline an image in glitter (see the ribbon), and doodle with a glue pen and cover in glitter (see snowflakes)]

Of course, this first card is done using some of the wonderful Impression Obsession Christmas stamps, paired with an old favourite winter time Cuttlebug embossing folder, and using a Spellbinder's swirl die.



Please take some time to drop by the other Impression Impression designers' blogs, they've created some beautiful things! You can see the links right there in my sidebar. By the way...do you know you could win a $25.00 gift certificate for Impression Obsession stamps? If you create your own white card with IO stamps, and upload it by December 5th at midnight, and you could win! All the information can be found here.


The Friday Alphabet Challenge is to create something with a house. Here's my glittered Thomas Kinkaide easel card to meet that one.



I'm posting some other cards I've created for Christmas as well...just for fun. I've used a lot of hand stitching and beading for my Christmas cards this year, combining some with stamping. It's always nice to use different techniques.











Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today! I'll stop by your blog too. :)
