Christmas Card Challenges #17 -- Anything Goes

Edited to add: I'm sorry -- I forgot to announce the winner from my giveaway last week. Random number generator chose 12. Congrats to Susan Moll. Susan, I tried to find some contact information for you to let you know but couldn't. Please email me at to claim your prize. A big thanks to everyone who took the time to leave a comment.

Hi friends. Thanks so much for stopping by today. I've got a Christmas card for this year's stash which is also for the current challenge at Christmas Card Challenges which is anything goes.

I've used the gorgeous ornaments from a Simon Says Stamp set. My main panel is popped up on lots of foam tape for extra dimension. It's kind of hard to tell but my ornaments are stamped in a dark blue ink.

Dream, Explore, Discover for Clearly Whimsy Stamps

Woo hoo for Friday! My card today features lots of products from Clearly Whimsy Stamps. I first started by stamping the road stamp from the Travel 1 set. I used my MISTI to help me stamp the image several times so I could get a really good impression. I then stamped the sign image from the Travel 2 set and then added a fun card to travel down the road. 

I also stamped some clouds in the background from the Happy Hello set. The main panel is popped up on foam tape and I've added some enamel dots as a finishing touch.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful day. Crafty hugs!

Supplies not linked:  Enamel dots

Thinking of You

Before we get to today's card, I'm happy to announce Sandie from Fairytale Daydream as my newest follower. What a great blog name. Sandie is a great colorer and has lots of fabulous cards showcased on her blog.

Happy Tuesday friends. I've got another fun and cheery card to share today using the same paper pack from PTI (linked below as part of a kit) that I used on this card that I shared last week.

Thanks so much for your visit. I hope you have a most fabulous day!

showCASe your style challenge #11 -- Thinking of You

Hi friends. Thank you so much for the warm wishes on my post yesterday. Yesterday was a better day and I just have to take things one day at a time.  

If you didn't see yesterday's post, click here or scroll down for your chance to win a great die set from Simon Says Stamp.  I will announce the winner next Friday.

Today's card is for the newest challenge at showCASe your style challenge blog. We've got a great inspiration photo to help inspire you which you can see below. You don't have to use Clearly Whimsy stamps to play along in the challenge but if you do, the prize amount goes up.

I used the super cute Into the Woods stamp set and its coordinating dies for my card. I also used the Stitched Border Trio die to create the grass.

Happy Birthday with Sprinkles and BLOG CANDY

Happy Friday friends. I'm sorry for my long absence. I've just been fighting some health issues and haven't had any energy for crafting or blogging. My card today is for the current anything goes card challenge over at Sister Act Card Challenge.

I'm also offering up some blog candy which I've shown below. Look to see how you can win it. Edited to add:  I will draw a winner next Friday, March 27th.

Now, onto my card. I used some fun paper in PTI's Sprinkles and Shakers kit and then made a shaker frame around it using some stitched rectangle dies. Lots of fun sequins from Pretty Pink Posh finish off the shaker portion.

Here's what you can win for commenting on this post. If you leave a separate comment and tell me that you are a new follower or that you already follow my blog, you get two entries.
