I used a really cute freebie of theirs that they have on their blog. I love coloring Santa and I just couldn't resist this adorable face. You can find this freebie here. Just scroll down to the bottom.
They are giving one lucky player this week a gift certificate to their store. So what are you waiting for you have to play to win!
I did my card a little differently this week. I created a ornament that comes off the card after you open it so you can hang it on the tree. Just a little added surprise to go with the card. The little bells also jingle when you shake the card. The ornament bottom is made from CS that has glitter made into it so that it sparkles a bit.

Isn't this Magnolia snowman just the cutest. I just love that they also make a matching snowflake for the one that the snowman is holding. I stamped the side panel in different shades of blue ones to accent the image. I can't believe that I bought them lst year and are just getting around to using them now. I also had to include lots of blue gems, pearls and glitter! At my LSS they had these great clear snowflake buttons (the 2 at the corners of my image) that I colored blue with my Copics and added a pearl in the center. Don't you just love when find something that is fun to use as an added surprise!

This card is the first Baby's First Christmas card I have ever made. I thought it would be pretty easy but then I realized most of the Christmas DP out there doesn't work well on a baby card. I looked around and found this really pretty Digi DP at Bearly Mine Designs. Her papers are gorgeous and I have never really think of using digi paper because I have so much regular DP. Boy have I found a new love. I printed it on CS so I could cut out some of the stars to use as accents around the image and saying. I guess I better ask Santa for lots of color ink cartridges.
I need to give one more shout out to Really Reasonable Ribbon. I won a gift certificate for their store. I loved their ribbons and prices so much I bought more ribbon from them. The ribbon on this card was a free sample they sent me with my order and it was something I wouldn't have picked myself. It is beautiful though and matched the DP perfectly so thank you RRR you made my day! Be sure to take a look at their store if you love ribbon like I do.

Here is my post you would have read on Tuesday!
It is time for another fabulous challenge over at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations. This week we have an easy challenge for you, Christmas. Whether you think of a decorated tree , presents all wrapped, a first snowflake, Santa down the chimney, a snowman just made or anything else that comes to mind when you think of Christmas we would love to see it this week.
For this challenge I decided to try my hand at an all white card. This was very hard for me because I love color to make the card "POP" and this time I needed to rely on textures like textured CS and shimmer white CS, embossing, glitter, ribbon and embellishments. My snowflake in the corner is all white, prism(silver) and white mother of pearl. When I took the picture the camera kept making it come out with colors even though IRL it doesn't show like that. It was a surprise to me so try to imagine it sparkly not colorful!
These are wonderful challenges that I played so be sure to check out them and hopefully play along.
