Blogger's Challenge

It's Friday! My goodness this week has gone quickly but I am still so glad it is Friday!

Welcome, to Blogger's Challenge #122. This week's challenge is to make a no layer card. Interesting, I thought, as I had this same challenge just last week for another group. Anyway, as you can see I went with the same idea as yesterday only executed a different way. This time I made a stencil out of my Ornament Punch by just punching it through a piece of a window sheet. You then just make your ornament by sponging the color in the punched out area. Believe it or not I just stamped one of the trees from Lovely As A Tree a couple of times for the branch. The silver cord is from the Holiday Mini Catalog. Now, the sentiment on the ornaments is from an old set of rub-ons from Stampin' Up! but I don't recall the name of it. My colors for this card are Bravo Burgundy, Apricot Appeal, and Handsome Hunter (yes, you do see some HH where it isn't supposed to be but don't tell anyone!). I was hoping the colors would look a little vintage Christmas. All of the items you see on the card, including the Shimmery White cardstock (yes, again!) can be purchased through my SU! website for which there is a link in my right side column.

I'm hoping to work on making a Holiday Planner today. I'm also hoping I can have it done today so I can show it to you tomorrow so please stop back. I'll leave you with a Psalm and comment...

"For the Lord taketh pleasure in his people." Psalm 144:4 I take pleasure in all of you, my online friends! Aww

Really Lovely Lorie! I have a SAS this Sunday and needed one more card to finish up. I've been wanting to get my group addicted to Shimmery White, this sounds like the perfect way to do it affordably! Thank yu so much for sharing.
