Happy New Year!!! Delightful Challenge

Happy Thursday!!

Another week flying by, mine has been pretty eventful with getting shopping done, getting teacher's gifts baked, subbing at the school and ending with my two youngest girls and myself being sick with the flu. ugh!

I did however manage to get my DT creation done for this week's Delightful Challenge. Our challenge this week is HAPPY NEW YEAR.

I am just so in love with these adorable little dumpling babies that i just had to use the Little Dumpling Happy New Year boy and the Happy New Year Sentiment to make my Countdown to the New Year chain. My girls make one of these chains every Christmas in school to Countdown to Christmas so i just borrowed the idea and made one for New Years and every night one of my girls tear off a link.

Of coarse as with all of our challenges we have a wonderful sponsor with a fabulous prize and this week we have our very own Digital Delights by Louby Loo.

One lucky winner will receive a $10.00 Gift Certificate to the Digital Delights store. Also a reminder that we have a SALE going on, ALL CHRISTMAS STAMPS are 50% OFF!!!

Well, that's it for me today Thank You for stopping by i just love when you visit!!

Have a Great Day!!

Kitty's 1st Christmas

Hello Friends,

Today i have a cute little card i made for my little fur baby. This year will be his very 1st Christmas so i just had to make him a card for his scrapbook page right? I also made it to go with this week's Delightful Challenge....

I used the ever so adorable Christmas Stocking Toby image from Digital Delights. I colored him orange just like my little guy, added some cotton to his hat and of coarse the glitter to the ball of his hat, candy canes and stocking. gotta have that bling!! added my poinsettas and there you have it, my little guys momento. although i must say i'm very nervous about putting up my tree and my gifts. he's a very mischievious cat and i have a feeling my tree will be taking a tumble at least a couple of time this season~yikes! and the gifts, well I think we will wait on putting those under the tree or we may wake up to a bunch of unwrapped gifts and an outdoor cat lol. Well i guess we'll see. :0)
As always we have a Wonderful Sponsor.
This week one lucky winner will receive a $10 Gift Certificate to the Digital Delights by Louby Loo Store.

Be sure to check out the Store for some of the most adorable images to use on the fabulous Christmas cards!!! Wendy has also added a new Gingerbread tag set in both colored and black and white versions. how sweet will these look on those gifts? now not only will they get a wonderful gift from you but also a precious memento to add into their scrapbooks or save in their memory boxes.

Well, that's all i have for today i thank you for stopping by for a visit and i want to say
to those of you celebrating today!!!!

This week i used Stocking Noah from Digital Delights by Louby Loo. I just think he is such a cutie!! Ok so you may be wondering why he is in pink, well that's what you get when you ask 3 girls what color i should color him, poor little guy he didn't stand much of a chance. I'm sure whoever receives this Christmas card will understand. lol. Boy does this card sparkle, I embossed some silver metallic paper with my snowflake embossing folder and added some pink sparkles to the snowflakes. then added some glitter and sparkles to Noah's oufit and stocking.

Today i used this sweet little cutie Oralie the Sleepy Mouse. Poor little guy is all tuckered out and ready to go to bed. I went with the faux stitiching on my card seeing as how i have yet to figure out how to change the thread on my little sewing machine. Thank goodness for dp that already has some stitching in it. I used my Argyle embossing folder and embossed the dp in the back and the circle under my image. looks a lot like stitching and it's quick and easy. I also added some little dots using my white gel pen to the little scallops around my image and there you have it.
