How was the Black Friday Shopping?

If you are reading this you survived Black Friday:) Hope you found lots of Christmas goodies. I for one do not like to Christmas shop around the holiday. Too many crowds. I love shopping online. That is the wonderful thing about these digital stamps from Elisabeth Bell. You can purchase them online and immeditely receive them to create. No waiting weeks or for the UPS guy to show up. Another reason I love these designs is that every stamp has so many personalities. Color the Pat-a-Cake image in Christmas colors and it make a fantastic Christmas card. Color it in Spring colors and you have a whole new look.

I went a little vintage on this card. I love the way the image and the paper compliment eachother. I used DP from Basic Grey and cardstock from PTI. I added a vintage looking snowflake brad, ribbon and rhinestones. I used the sketch challenge at the Sweet Stop for inspiration. I also played with the Beli challenge this week. This challenge asks you to use forgotten embellishments. This week it was embellishments starting with a "R". I chose ribbon and rhinestones:)

Hugs and Happy Shopping:)

MelJen's Challenge Card

This week's challenge at MelJens is to use buttons and bows. I used one of MelJens new release images, called "Holly Cheer Cocoa" and colored it with Copic Markers. I used DP from my stash and cardstock from PTI. I added a fabric star, button, felt ribbon, and a bow made out of twine. I brought my image to life with Copic markers.

I followed the sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday to inspire my card. I also participated in the Beli challege using forgotten embellishments starting with the letter "R".

Make sure you check out all the wonderful creations by the DT using these images! You can purchase these fabulous images and others from MelJen's Designs at the Whimsy Site.
