We are now in the double digit countdown for Christmas, wooohooo! I'm planning my decorations, meals, gifts....everything! Thanks to CSAYL I've got a great stash of Christmas cards going on and since I'm the type to get them ready and addressed in October I feel like I'm practically done already :) If anyone out there loves to get Christmas cards feel free to drop me a line and we can exchange cards this year! I think its so much fun to get cards from across the country(and the world!).

Ok, enough babbling :) We are on week 34 over at CSAYL and Maria has provided a sketch as this weeks challenge:

I've had some new items sitting here, waiting for use, so I brought those out. I just got 2 new stamp sets and they are clear stamps, which is something I've never used before. I've always preferred wood-mounted and I'm not the type that likes change :) However, I saw the release of this penguin set by Sweet and Sassy Stamps and I had to give the clear stamps a try. I ADORE penguins! With this card I also used some colors that arent really traditional Christmas colors but I'm really pleased with how the card came out! As always, thanks for taking a moment to check my card out!

Supplies Used(all supplies Stampin'Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamps- Waddle I do by Sweet and Sassy Stamps
Paper-Basic Black,Garden Green,Whisper White, PP by S.E.I.
Ink- Black StazOn,Garden Green
Accessories-SU Markers, SU watercolor pencils, CB D'Vine folder, Basic Black and Whisper White ribbon,small tag punch,dimensionals,scalloped circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, ticket corner punch

  1. Beautiful job on your card, Lisa!! I love that striped paper. . .striped designs are one of my favorites. That penguin is adorable! I think I'll probably get my cards ready to go in October as well. . .good idea. I'm terrible at getting things mailed out on time. Thank you for playing along in the challenge again. It's always great to see your beautiful cards!
