CC238 & ASC2:Sweet Christmas

WOW has the air gotten crisp here in Northern VA!!  I LOVE it!  oh i will be whinin’ for summer again soon enough but for now i am thrilled for the change!  fall and spring are my fave times of year.  i am SO itchin’ to start the halloween decorating but have been forcig myself to wait until it is actually october hee heee!  this will be the first eyar pex will really *know* what’s going on.  i can’t WAIT to do the trip out to pick pumpkins and hunt for gourds.  we tried it last year and it was a MONSTROUS disaster.  she gave new meaning to the word nightmare complete with throwing herself down on the dirt wailing and refusing to move and nearly falling out of the hayride.  crossing my fingers that this year she will *get it* a little more and be more fun!

now onto the good stuff!

ASC2Our challenge this week in the Sweet Dreamers group was to use the second installment over on Aly’s Sunday Sketch blog.  Who is Aly?  The incredibly talented 10 year old daughter of one of the group members.  she has decided she wants to do a skethc challenge every other Sunday AND she does a sample too – and let me tell ya she is good!!  and so are her sketches!

So here is what she gave us to work with.


And here is mine:


i used the color combo on SCS yesterday – Pretty In Pink, Sage Shadow and Going Gray and decided to do a non-traditional Christmas card with one of my favorites of the stamps my mom has done for me – Pine Cone Scrolls.  i think these colors are AMAZEing together!  and the glittery pink pezabling acrylic squares matched up just right too!  i used my cricut for the poinsettia and the *joy* which i accented with silver liquid pearls.

ASC2 close upi did the main image in distress embossing powder – i asked my mom to design this stamp specifically with embossing in mind.

**we are working on a little something exciting we’ll show y’all on Friday so be sure you don’t forget to tune in!!**

now off to make grocery lists and clean cat water dishes – GLAMorous  let me tell ya!!
