It's Beginning to Look Alot Like Christmas....say what????

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…..HOLD ON THERE!!! CHRISTMAS???? Didn’t we just finish having Christmas? Well as a matter of fact we did, but you know how hard it is to get the upper hand on all of those wonderful Christmas cards. So to help us along Digistamps4Joy has started a Christmas ProgressiveChallenge…and the great part is that they are supplying the image!! That’s right, as long as you make a card each month and enter it into the challenge, you will be eligible for the next month’s freebie! For the month of January we were given a really beautiful candle called Christmas Candle

Please excuse the quality of the picture. When I went to take it I realized that my camera battery was dead so I ended up taking it with my hubby’s cell phone…note to self…my cell phone takes much better pictures lol. So I started out with a really beautiful burgundy dp called Noel from Making Memories. I layered this onto white cs from Recollections. I used a layout from this weeks Wednesday Sketch Challenge at Outlawz. And I got the wonderful sentiment from A Piece of Heart.

I colored the image with my Crayola Pencil crayons and oms, and my gold and red glitter pens and my green metallic pen. The clear rhinestone swirls are from Crafts and the decorative border is cut out of gold cs from Recollections. I will have to check on what the name of the border die is as I forgot to bring it upstairs with me. 

Note: You can join our challenge at any time…so if you missed out on January’s challenge, you can join in for February’s. Then as long as you enter a project in, you will get the next image…how great is that??
Thanks for visiting ~
