Season's Greetings Card - Christmas Stampin All Year Long Challenge #9

Good Morning Everyone,

It's Monday Morning - so that means another challenge from one of my favorite Challenge groups: Christmas Stampin' All Year Long. Each Week, there is a different challenge to help us create our holiday cards early - and I can't even tell you how grateful I am to be able to do these now.... for one thing its helping me use my stamps, paper and supplies. You can join in on the fun each week by doing the challenge with us (you can link your creation to the post in the challenge group - or upload to Paper Craft Planet with the key word CSYAL).

This week's challenge is a sketch challenge and I have to say, that I love sketch challenges. This week looked like a long card - so I pulled out one of my favorite stamps: these happy snowmen by the artist Tara Reed. Tara is such a sweetheart - you can check out her blog here! I am always so happy when I use this cutie stamp - these snowmen just seem to be so jolly - they always make me smile :)



Card Supplies:
Paper: Cardstock from Stash
Ink: Versamark and White EP
Stamps: Snowmen image from Stamps Happen Inc. (Tara Reed Designs)
Accessories: Liquid Pearls for the snow, crystal glitter (Martha), sliver pen, markers, grosgrain ribbon
Show watched: Toy Story with my son :)


I love these challenges! Each week after I make my holiday card, I put it in a special litle container and its nice to see that container starting to fill up! Check out all the awesome inspiration for this great sketch at the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog! Hope you join in on the fun!!!

Thank you for visiting this little corner!!!
Ciao for now,
Sankari :)

Super cute Sankari!! You know, this is silly but it never really occurred to me that I could make DIFFERENT Christmas cards to send out, I always have it in my brain that it has to be one card, mass produced. LOL!
