Have I told you lately...


...how much I LOVE challenges!? They get us out of our creative doldrums, right?

We're currently in the midst of our first snowstorm of the season here in Nova Scotia, and I spent SUCH a lovely day in my craft room...lots of lattes, snow falling outside, and all my Christmas card supplies all around the room.

The ABC challenge this week is "D for Dazzle..." bling, bling and more bling! The Moxie Fab World challenge is red and rustic. I used Impression Obsession Cover a Card stamps for the ornaments (Music and Holly), and a sentiment from this Impression Obsession set (CL347 Christmas in the Heart). The Sisterhood challenge is polka dots. I used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder to emboss one of the ornaments.

The Creative Card Crew challenge is monochromatic. I used blue with white for this one, along with the Impression Obsession Cover a Card Snowflakes stamp and a sentiment stamp from this Impression Obsession set (CL 282 The Miracle of Christmas). The One Stop challenge is BLUE!


The Papertake Weekly challenge is "Christmas Faves." I've used several versions of ornament cards for Christmas this year, with Impression Cover a Card stamps. This one uses a sentiment from the new Impression Obsession Christmas in the Heart clear set.


There's a HOT sale happening over at Impression Obsession...click right here for all the details!

The Dreamweaver challenge this week is a circle sketch with a Thanksgiving theme. I used one of my very favourite Dreamweaver stencils (LL 318 Leaf Heart) with Dreamweaver White Embossing Paste sprinkled with Metallic FX Eye of the Tiger. Then I used an Impression Obsession stamp from the CL287 Live in Thanksgiving clear set.


Thanks so much for stopping by today. I sure do appreciate it! I'll visit you too, if I have a link.
