Anything Goes at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' !

Winter and Christmas images are my favorites. I'm happy and excited to announce that I've been invited to be on the Design Team of Christmas at Sweet Stampin'. This new challenge blog doesn't officially start until January 9, and will be the second Wednesday of every month. But since there's so much enthusiasm out there for this blog, today begins a challenge of "Anything Goes" as long as it's Christmas.

My card is this Sugar Nellie image that I purchased a couple of years ago and it went into my Christmas stamp stash and never used. This year my goal is to stamp and color all my Christmas and winter stamps and being on this Design Team is definitely going to help me achieve that goal!

The doily is from Stampin' Up, the flower with the brad in the center and the beads are from Prima, and the swirl is a die by Sizzix.  The paper is scrapbook paper from one of my local shops and the pearls and lace are from my stash. I  used white puffy paint and while it was wet, I sprinkled it with white Microfine Glitter Ritz. I colored this image with colored pencils and shaded around the image with a tiny bit of Baby Blue ink from Stampin' Up on a blender.
The prizes for the challenge of Anything Goes are:

Surprise Stamps From the Personal Impressions Range

a set of Letraset ProMarkers!

At Christmas at Sweet Stampin' we're looking forward to seeing your projects and wish each and every one of you a wonderful holiday month.
