Yup, it's that time again. Are you ready for another challenge?
This month will be a different Challenge in that it is going to be a Theme Challenge. I know it is August, but I am starting to think about my Christmas cards...that's right, I said Christmas. For this month I want to see your best Christmas creation using one of your favorite or newest Christmas stamps! It can be anything...card, tag, 3d item...whatever you like, but it must be a Christmas creation!
What are you playing for? Well...I have decided to do some purging of my stamproom. I have a brand new 'On Board Art Journal' from SU and I will include a mixture of ribbons and papers that I have. I will post a pic next week after we get back from our camping trip this week. I will also do up my own sample next week as well.
This one will be one entry per person and the deadline is August 31st @ 9:00pm MST. The winner will be announced Sept 1st.
Good luck and I can't wait to see all those Christmas creations!
Just thought I would leave you with one more Bella creation from last week.
And look! No Sanded on this one. ;0)
Have a great weekend all! :0)

Although, it is RED. I own nothing that is red and certainly not this RED. But looking at it again this morning...I love it! And hubby liked it too when I showed him lastnight ;0) Thanks again Nancy...I had fun! :0)

That background is done using the Shaving Cream Technique. How beautiful is this!?! Thank you again Maria. :0)
I was going to share another Bella creation with you all today, but I worked on my entry for Julee's 75K Sketch Challenge and actually pretty happy with it. So here it is...
First off the color combo...Sahara Sand, Bordering Blue, Whisper White and Basic Black. I had seen all of these creations with the Sahara Sand and Blue Bayou color combo and just loved them! However, I am not a proud owner of the Blue Bayou yet...yet ;0) So I did my own version. Then I saw this amazing creation by Debbi. I decided to give it a shot with a smaller version. Love it! The work 'Kind' was embossed in silver. I love this sketch...don't you? I will be using this one again!
Okay...off to get stuff done for the day! What I'm not exactly sure, but I am sure I have something important to do today ;0)

I used some DP I received in a DP swap recently. Love this paper! The circles were stamped with what else... Sanded! My Veggiebella was colored with my SU markers. I like this card although, I think the circles are maybe too small?
Off to do some more creating!! :0)
And here is one of mom's creations from this weekend too! The photo does not give this one justice. The black flower buttons have a mini gem glued to the centre and once again I used my new favorite background stamp...Sanded! I have lots more Bella's to show off, but you will have to wait till tomorrow ;0)
Happy Monday All!! Actually a dreary, rainy Monday here...oh well. :0(

This technique is quite fun...although also quite messy ;0). I really love the Christmas one though. I have lots of shaving cream left, so I think I will make some more of these for my Christmas card stash.
Thanks for stoppin' by. Tomorrow I am going to be sharing a new Bella card and my girls did their own bella creations that I will share too ;0)
**I really am sorry about these lousy pics...I must get back to taking my time with my pics...just been lazy lately**

What do you do with all those Swap cards and Blank RAK's you receive? I am getting quite a pile of them and wondered what others do with theirs. I feel kinda of strange giving someone a card that I did not make myself. Is that dumb? I mean I use to buy cards that were made by someone else all the time(Hallmark)...it's really no different. And the designer of the card has their info on the back...I would never take credit for someone elses work. I am just curious.
Please leave me a comment.
I will be back with a pic of the prize for this months Challenge!
Sorry about the lousy pic...I will get back to my regular photo taking...I was just lazy ;0) I had this color combo(Chocolate Chip and Old Olive) out for a swap I did lastweek and loved it, so used it for this one too.Not only love the Baroque Motif set, but I *LOVE* the new Sanded background stamp. I have seen some stampers out there in blogland using this stamp on top of their DP and it looks amazing. Have to try this too!
Thanks for stoppin' by

This was one of the first creations using my new Baroque Motifs and Sanded set. I absolutely love this stamp!! It is just a great stamp for creating quick cards. I plan to make a bunch of these in different color schemes. I also think I will make more of this particular one for Christmas cards this year too. This card was inspired by Nancy's card here. Thanks for the inspiration, Nancy! I actually made one more card lastnight, but I will save it for tomorrow's post.
We are now on our way to do some 'Back to School' shopping! Wish us luck ;0)

I received my swaps from Kim's first swap...Baby/Kid Swap. Check these out!
Love these cards ladies! Glad to be in this swap with ya!
Now here is the one I made. When I was trying to decide what to make, I thought that it has been a long time since I actually used a technique of any kind. So I did the emboss resist technique on this one. Also, played with some faux stitching. Very simple, but it's okay.
I am hoping to try and do some stampin' tonight. I actually finished a swap this week, but forgot to take pics...duh! So that one will have to wait till I get them back. And I will be taking a pic of the giveaway for this months challenge too...I am so far behind on things!! Hope your still hangin' around ;0)
