Digi Doodle Shop #119

Good morning, y'all!  If you're here looking for my Dare to Be Sassy Thursday post...there isn't one.  We have switched teams again, so now I will be showing off the Friday Freebie you can get in the Paper Craft Planet group.  However, if you're here for the newest Digi Doodle Shop challenge....you're in the right spot!  Woo hoo!

This week we want to see

Ribbons and Bows!

Fun, right?  Who doesn't love ribbon?  I sure do.  I admit it; I'm a ribbon junkie.  How about you?  With a baby on the way, I'm trying to get my Christmas cards done super early this year, before I get too tired/busy. (My goal is to have them all finished by my birthday at the end of October. Wish me luck!!)


I used the lovely Christmas Ornaments, available in the Christmas section of the store.  Isn't it beautiful?  I have to admit, it's one of my favorite Christmas stamps ever.  I decided I really wanted a ton of sparkle, so I colored it with Spica markers instead of my Copics.  Well, the green, brown and blue are Spica markers.  The silver is a Stardust pen.  The silver paper I got from Archiver's and embossed using a very cool little damask folder.  The dp is from DCWV.  Ribbon is from Michael's, and the chipboard stars and snowflake are from my stash.  I painted the chipboard silver then covered with Stickles for a bit more shimmer.

Want some more inspiration?  Head on over to the Digi Doodle Shop challenge blog to see the GORGEOUS creations the rest of Team R came up with!

First, congrats to you on your soon-to-be little one. I am wishing you luck to finish your Christmas cards because once that bundle of joy arrives crafty time will be scarce. ;) Love your sparkly scene and I'm going to have to get my Spica's out now and play lol. Beautiful card and your ribbon is divine!
