Hello and happy weekend!!  Hope everyone is almost ready for the holidays.  To celebrate that holiday feeling, we have a NEW CHALLENGE for you at DI'S DIGI DESIGNS CHALLENGE and that is CHRISTMAS!  So, let's see those Christmas creations:) 

You have until Fri., December 30 to enter your NEW CREATION at DI'S DIGI DESIGNS CHALLENGE.  While you are not required to use an image from DI'S DIGI DOWNLOADS, we'd sure LOVE to see one and it will give you a chance to win 2 images from Di's in addition to be entered into our prize drawing for the prize from our amazing sponsor

So for this challenge, I have made 2 creations - one using traditional Christmas colors and one using non-tradtional Christmas colors.   Both images can be found at DI'S DIGI DOWNLOADS.  The first one, "Christmas Post" is colored with Copics and Fiskars glitter gel pens, cut with Nesties and Stickles added.  I also cut the backing paper with Nesties, silver speckled vellum is embossed with Sizzix snowflakes folder, lace from stash added, sentiment from Unity cut out with Nesties and bling stars added.  Papers from Core-dinations and Authentique.  Lace is from my stash and dove stickers are from K and Co.  I sure hope you like it and will come play along!!

Additional challenges entered:

ALPHABET CHALLENGE - w for white Christmas
DELICIOUS DOODLES - Christmas with lots of embellies
GLITTER GEEKS - anything goes
INKSPIRATIONS - Christmas Crations
JUST ADD INK - sparkle
RAISE THE BAR - Christmas
BLING IT ON - Christmas

For my second card, I have used DI'S DIGI DOWNLOADS image "Rascal's present."  I have colored the image with Copics and cut with Nesties and added bling from Darice.  I decided to make this a Christmas card but using no red and green, so I have used blues and pinks.  Paper from My Mind's Eye is also cut with Nesties as is sentiment which is from C.C. Designs.  Snowflakes are from K and Co., bling flourish from Prima and lace from JoAnn.  Sparkly ribbon on tag is from my stash.  Hope you like it:)
