We all really appreciate YOU for joining in with us and we look forward to seeing your birthday themed entries!

As you all know I have been with the challenge from the very beginning, as have Jo and Debby, we have seen many fabulous designers come and go along the way and I would like to thank them all for their time spent with us. I would like to thank all of our guests and the design team for all of their help and support, we are a family and I love them all XXX We have all had a great time and had a lot of fun along the way.

Thanks Heidi, Steph and all at Simon Says Stamp! I can't believe the 8 years have flown by so quickly and one of the greatest pleasures in my life has been meeting you all in Ohio!! see you all NEXT WEEK!! WOO HOO!! I am going to be helping at the CREATE event so if you are going to be there please stop by to say 'hello' I would love to meet you!!

Wild Rose Studio 'Snowman family'

Hi all, Christmas will be here in 264 days!! If you haven't made a start on your cards then its about time you got a wiggle on! ;-)

We have a new theme just starting on the ABC Christmas Challenge and the lovely Carissa is hosting!

'H' for Home 
'I' for Informal 

I made 2 cards, one for each letter ;-)

'H' for Home

I used a gorgeous Wild Rose Studio Christmas Scene Die

I kept this really CAS, I simply used Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky Inks for the background and then used a stencil and embossing paste for the snowflakes.

'I' for Informal.

For this one I used the 'Snowman Family' stamp set that is part of the sponsor prize from the Wild Rose Studio, 

I just received my Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks yesterday (YAY!!) so I just had to have a go. I used Faded Jeans for the background and then splattered with water, shine spray and white ink. I love the starry/snowy sky! :-) 

Thanks for looking! I hope you will all join in and start getting ready for Christmas, it will be here before you blink and you will be glad that you started early ;-)
