Warmest Wishes & Good News

After reading my friend Rachel's blog (which is awesome - you should pay her a visit) about how she made some crafty goals for the new year, I decided to make some of my own Paper Crafting goals for 2012. To my total surprise in the first two weeks of 2012 I can already strike 2 off the list. One was to be a Tuesday Trigger winner which I was last week with Stripe-tastic and another was to finally place at CAS-ual Fridays - which I can't believe I did last week with my Home Sweet Home card! 

Another goal I have is to make Christmas cards year round so I have plenty to send out next year without having to stress out and make lots of cards in November/December. I found this new fun challenge blog called 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown. I couldn't quite make the deadline last week, but I'm in this week. I'm excited to get more use out all the Christmas stamps I bought last year and I hope to play in this challenge every chance I get. This week the challenge is a color one - black & white with a splash of red. I used this sweet girl from the Artistic Outpost stamp set called Frosty Friends. Thanks for taking a look!!

Here's my card.

1. Card stock - Whisper White, Basic Black, Real Red - Stampin' Up
2. Stamps - Frosty Friends, Holiday Saying - Hero Arts
3. Ink - Tuxedo Black - Memento
4. Rhinestones - Bling on a Roll - Michaels
5. Die - Label - Sizzix


  1. Super sweet card, I just adore this image and how you have just added pops of red!
    Congrats on your well deserved wins Donna!!

  2. Congratulations on your wins! This is such a sweet card and I love the ribbon threaded through the sentiment like this.
