Sparkle, Sparkle, Sparkle

WOW! Can you believe it is December already!?! This year has really gone by so fast. It seems like only yesterday that I was setting scrapping goals for my year and now the year is almost over. December is bound to really zip by... are you ready for the holidays to get into full swing? I am!! I love this time of year. Anything that sparkles is my friend! LOL

And talk about sparkle...Crafter's Companion Challenge Blog has a new challenge for December that starts today. Guess what the challenge is??!! You probably guessed it...Sparkle!! You just need to use a Crafter's Companion Stamp and make your project sparkle.

I made this Christmas card for my example. I colored one of the Humphrey's Christmas Collection Stamps - Meeting Santa. I think the little guy in the image is just the sweet thing ever! I colored the image with my new Spectrum Noir markers that are available for pre-order at Crafter's Companion right now! I really can't rave about them enough, not only are the comparable to Copics but they are so reasonably priced it is ridiculous! (enough said!)

I wanted to let you know that Sketches4all is having another fun event featuring Nikki Sivils goodies that you need to go check out!! It starts on Friday, December 2nd and ends on December 9th. There will be yummy prizes. You really want to go see what it is all about.

I'm leaving at 8:45am to fly to Oklahoma to meet up with my mother and then hop in her car on Friday and drive down to Texas for the big Family Reunion/Christmas party. The kids and I are all packed and ready to go. I am sure we will have a blast.

Don't forget to enter my giveaway if you haven't already done it. You know you want that Crafter's Companion Ultimate Tool that I am giving away. (and hint hint...there might be a couple more goodies added....just saying...)

Have a good weekend!!

  3. darling card!!! also have a safe and great trip!!! hugs,

  4. Hey Girl! I hope you have a great time on your trip! I still cannot believe that we are in December! I am just not ready yet! I need like a week solid alone to get the house, paperwork, photos etc all caught up then I will be ready! Who am I kidding that will never happen! SO this am I woke Husband up at 4 to go to work, then he woke me up at 5 because his truck wouldn't start, he finally gets going then I go to take the kids to school and my car breaks down! I had to borrow my Mom's Mini van and drive an hour to work because I had my Boss's cell phone and he needed it then I had to drive an hour home to return her van. Then she needed to come and pick me up so we could pick up the kids then drive us home! SO I am with out a car and my Husband just told me his is dead in the driveway too! What a day! I had to take off from work because I have no way to get there! I will be an assistant tomorrow while he attempts to repair them!

  5. LOVE the sparkle on Santa's coat. What lovely cards.
    Thanks for sharing! :)
