Holiday decorations challenge

Blog Badge

Remember, you don't need to follow the theme to link up your cards and earn a free paper each month, and have your name thrown into the year end draw for some extra digital goodies.  You only need to follow the theme if you want a chance to win this month's sponsored prize of a $12.00 gift certificate from A Day For Daisies.

I don't know about you, but one of the things that I love about Christmas time is the decorations that I see up all over the place.  Whether in people's homes, or out and about in the community, there are such a wide variety of beautiful holiday decorations to choose from.  Strings of lights, wreaths on doors, stockings on mantles (or in the case of my house, hanging from the piano!), window paintings, tree ornaments, angels on trees--the list goes on and on!  This month, let's bring some of those holiday decorations to your cards!
In order to have a chance to win the prize from our wonderful guest sponsor this month,make sure that your card has holiday decoration on it in some form or other (i.e. lights, wreaths, ornaments, etc.).  If you do follow the optional theme, be sure to add FT after your name so that we include you in the draw for the prize.

The image I chose was the adorable Penguin snowman, you can find it here.

I used my rounded squares dies to cut the shapes for my card.
I used 4 of the papers in the set shown above that you could win.

Glitter is one of my favorite decorations all year long so I had to add some for the snow.  I used my gel pens to color the scarf, I love these pens, they blend really cool when you color next to another color while it's wet.  For the hat, I scribbled the purple into the red, I love how it turned out!

I promised myself last Christmas that I would try to make at least two Christmas cards every month this year. Thanks so much for the inspiration!
