Good Morning all :-) Hope you are all fit and well and for those of you in the UK ,, stay home and keep warm !!! Brrrrrr

We have some sad news to announce too ,,, unfortunately our lovely teamie Marcea has had to step down from the team, we are all sorry about this and would like to wish Marcea all the best xx I know we will keep in touch and I am looking forward to a get together when I am on my next visit home :-) xx You owe me a Starbucks coffee Marcea !! :-)

Thank you to all of you who joined in with Domi's sketch last week ,, I really love that sketch and have made several cards using it ,, got myself a mini production line going :-) I enjoyed coming to see them ALL too :-)

This week our challenge is all about CHRISTMAS but, there is a catch, we DON'T want to see any RED or GREEN !!

We have a FANTASTIC change to our challenge, every week for the month of December !! As a special Christmas Gift Heidi will be giving not her usual $25 spree ,, noooo Heidi is giving away a $50 spree at Simon Says Stamp Superstore! (includes postage)!! Woo Hoo

For my card I used this lovely Hero Arts Reindeer stamp such a cute stamp and so easy to use ,,, I used this on a ''production line too :

I used a Magnolia snowflake circle stamp, inked with pigment ink and heat embossed with Copper Sparkle EP, I then coloured the image with Copics and I then used a glue pen to go over the antlers and sprinked with Art Institute glitter,,, so sparkly, definitely my fave brand !! The papers are from an Echo Park Merry Christmas set . I used a Martha Stewart punch around the page snowflake set and embossed some SU ivory card with a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. I inked around all the edges with pigment ink and embossed with the Copper EP too. I added some pearls ( white ones coloured with a copic marker) to all the centers of the snowflakes and added some brown and cream ribbon across the center, made adouble loop bow and finished with a punched and glittered snowflake :-)
