Happy New Year

I did not get enough Christmas cards made so made a few new year's cards to send to those I had not sent cards to. This fit the CAS challenge today on SCS, and I discovered a new challenge blog over on Pinterest in a post from Harriet Skelly called AAA cards. The challenge was to use gold.

I used Kitchen Sink stamps and peanut brittle and rich cocoa ink. For the diecut numbers I used a wonderful gold glittered cardstock.

As the old year rolls out, bad weather is rolling in, and the prison ministry that I take part in every year has been canceled because of weather and the safety of our travels there. Please lift up prayers for these women who had been selected to take part in the weekend. Pray that God will give us a chance to do this weekend at a later date, that the team will be able to serve without conflicts of dates, and pray a wonderful 2015 for everyone everywhere== no matter where they are, no matter what their circumstances.

Join us in our last challenge for 2014. The challenge to to use an image of Santa on your card.  I have a sign up in my house that says, "Life-time fan of the HO, HO, man!"  This is a simple card that would be quick and easy to reproduce in a flash if you find yourself suddenly short on those last minute cards.

You can link your card over at ..

Here's hoping you and yours have a wonderful Christmas season.

Tic Tac Toe Fun

Lynn came up with a great challenge for us this week on CCEE Stampers. My choices on the tic tac toe game were Christ, star, and an animal. This stamp is from Sweet and Sassy. Come play along over at CCEE Stampers. Hope this finds you in joyful preparation of the Advent season. Love and peace to you and yours.

Paper Players 224

I've checked out all the challenges out there to find Christmas challenges that would motivate me to get a few more cards made tonight. I found that Paper Players has a great bingo challenge going this week. I am using white, glitter, and snowflakes. This was a fun card making use of the negative piece of a punched scrap. I put glittered paper behind it and let some of that paper peek out from the bottom.
