Two posts today!!! For the 123 Get Scrappy Post click HERE!
Can you tell that the holidays are near!? It seems like I've gone into hyper drive with the busy busy (and it's not like it wasn't busy before!) It makes for a lot less crafting time (or at least blogging time) which makes me sad but still alot of life goodness going on so all is good! Last weekend (yikes I guess is was actually 2 weekends ago!) it was a weekend of firsts in my household! C2 had her First Reconciliation, C1 and C2 had their first piano recital, C1 has her first mass in our church as an alter server and it was also the first day of Advent! Not to mention this past week was potty training week at my house so C3 had her share of firsts as well! Potty training sucks but there has been definite progress made in the last week so I'm not complaining! Yay!
Sooooo....onto what you're really here for....
A NEW CHALLENGE is up and running at Twisted Tuesday Challenges!
This fortnight here's the scoop:
The Challenge: Fussy cut something on your creation.
The Twist: Do something special with the corners of your creation (i.e. rounded, ticketed, etc....)
Since the holidays are just around the corner and its Christmas card making time here is my contribution using this week's challenge:
|border punch: Martha Stewart; digital stamp: Angels Landing;sentiment stamp: Hero Arts; mist: Studio Calico, markers: Copics, patterned paper: DCWV|
I had a lot of fun making this card! I punched the corners of my panel with a snowflake punch and fussy cut the adorable penguin! It seems that most of the Christmas cards I made this year have a penguin theme to them. My little C2 definitely approves!
Most of this card is made from scraps in my stash I've had for a while! The patterned paper scrap and the green stripy strip (which is packaging from a CTMH stamp) I've had for years! The silver snowflake was confetti strewn across our table at my work Christmas party c.2008 and I took a whole bunch of it home as they were too cute to leave behind!
I hope I've inspired you to play along! Be sure to stop my the rest of the DT blogs over at Twisted Tuesday Challenges for more wonderful inspiration! I can't wait to see what you create!
Thanks for stopping by!
