Merry Christmas

Good Morning.  How is everyone doing? When does it really hit you that XMAS is coming soon?  I know the holiday season is approaching because I went to my first craft fair this weekend.  Two of my sisters, my niece and I go into Boston every year to go to this.  There are so many talented people out there and this is a big fair with everything from Jewelry, XMAS decorations and Food to buy.  I actually got 2 XMAS presents bought!!!  I am so glad I have started.  We have many more fairs to go to and we always enjoy the day.  It really says to me that XMAS is approaching. 

Today is Tuesday which means the Going Grey with Scrap-Creations challenge.  The theme this week is Christmas

We have a wonderful sponsor this week.  Stamp Fairy!  They are a new company that makes the most adorable stamps.  They were kind enough to let us DT's play with some.  I thought this snowman was so cute. Check out the great cards the other DT's made.  You can find the links on my sidebar.

We all have Christmas cards to make so pull out your images and join the fun!  You could win!!

The other wonderful challenges this card fits are:

Stamp Insanity - Punches - I love my punches.  I used 2 different snowflake punches, and my MS icicle punch on this card.

Paperplay - Circles - I have circles with the snowballs and the snowman.

Paper Romance - Everything but the kitchen sink - This is a neat theme.  It means to do alot of something.  I have alot of layers and alot of pearls (my pearl pen)

The Sweet Shop - Sketch - I thought this was the perfect sketch for what I wanted to do with this card.

For Fun - Metal - my Metal is my pin in the ribbon

Crafty Calendar - Winter - I love making Snow themed cards.

Raise the Bar - Curves - I have curves on my scallops and the tree's and snowflake paper have swirls on them

Crazy for Challenges - Square card - Square cards seem to be all I make these days.  They are easy and more space to decorate.

Drunken Stampers - Punches - I used my MS Icicle punch and 2 different snowflake punches on this card.

Ellephantastic - Use Blue on card - I love this teal blue color.  It looks good with so many other colors, in this case purple.

Our Daily Bread - Gold, Silver cording, hemp or twine - I used silver cording with my ribbon and pin.

One Stitch at a Time - Winter Wonderland - Snowflakes and snowmen say Winter!!!
Paper Sundaes - Let it Snow - It won't be long and it will be snowing for real but for now it is only on my cards.

Paper Players - Snowmen - Snowmen are so fun to use on cards.  There are so many things you can do with them.

Stampin Sisters in Christ - Weather related - Snowflakes falling from the sky means that snowmen/snowballs can be made on the ground.

Crafty Purple Frog - Sparkle - I love all kinds of glitter on my cards.  I love the sparkle on this card.

Flourishes - Glitter - I love glitter.  I actually love anything that sparkles on a card.  This card screamed to be glittered so I did.

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you like my card.  Thanks to everyone who leaves a comment.  I look forward to reading them.
