Good Morning!!!

Hello and happy Thursday!  Only one more day 'til the weekend!  Woot woot!  Is everyone ready for Halloween?  (Well, everyone that celebrates it, anyway. LOL) I know I am.  Plus, my aunt from Cali comes into town tonight, so I'm super excited to spend some time with her over the weekend.

Well, let's get down to this week's Digi Doodle Shop's Best challenge, shall we?  This week is an easy one....anything goes!  My favorite.  =D

With winter coming up (too soon...), I decided to make a "home for the holidays" card.  I used the fantastic Christmas Globe, which can be found here.  I merged it with a sentiment in Word.  I colored it with Copics, a silver Uniball pen and souffle pens (for the ornaments on the trees).  I covered the globe with Glossy Accents, but it just didn't look right.  Then I realized that my favorite part of snow globes is all of the glitter!  So, once the Glossy Accents dried, I used a ton of Stickles.  Then, to get that glassy sheen, I did another layer of Glossy Accents.  The papers and flowers are from my stash.

Well now that you've seen my card, head on over to the Digi Doodle Shop's Best challenge blog to get some inspiration from the rest of the DT.

Don't forget, for the month of October all Halloween and Scenic images are 25% off!  PLUS, there's the fall special...where any purchase of $5 or more gets you these images FREE!  So, if you're not ready for Halloween, this is a good way to get it done.  =D

Head on over to the Digi Doodle Shop to snap up these fabulous deals while they last!

I hope you'll join us this week with some of your fabulous creations!  Remember, you don't have to use a Digi Doodle Shop stamp, but if you do it will be entered twice.  Also, you can enter as many times as you long as it's with a new card/project each time.

Thanks for stopping by!  We'll see you soon!
