Christmas is Almost Here!

Are you ready?  I thought I was.  Then I realized...even though it feels like I've been making Christmas cards since the 4th of July, I'm actually STILL (4) cards short.  Whoops!  Luckily I have tomorrow off work to finish wrapping presents, mail out my cards and gifts (sorry they're going to be late, y'all!), make envelopes for my cards and finish the rest of my cards.  Eek!

Luckily this week's Digi Doodle Shop Challenge is going to help me out.  This week is....Anything Goes!!


Some of you may recognize this image.  It was one of the free images from our Pet Pardons promotion in November.  I just love all the animals sitting there, hanging out with Santa.  =D  Image colored with Copics and Stickles added for accents.  The papers are from DCWV.  I don't remember where the stamp is from....I think Inkadinkado.  I used white hero art ink for the stamp, but it didn't come out right, so I went over the entire stamp with a white unibal pen.  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!  Flowers and ribbon are from my stash.

Now you've seen my card, hop on over to the Digi Doodle Shop's Best challenge blog to check out the amazing creations by the rest of the team.

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 want...as long as it's with a new card/project each time.  Also also....(LOL)...this challenge will run for TWO WEEKS!!

PLUS.....for the whole month of December.....EVERYTHING is 25% off!!  Only a week or so left for this deal...so hurry!  =D

Hi Starla: Your blog is AMAZING. I'm so glad I found you today. I love the title of your blog. There's was a song (Years Ago) from Rose Royce with that title. (I'm really telling my age here!) Anyway, I'd like to invite you by my blog for a special give-away. Hope you will stop by, and I'd love to follow you too.
Blessings,
Karen
