Stamp Simply Celebrates-- Day 2!

Hi all! Hope you are having a great start to your week! I have a quick card to show today before I get to all the happenings with the Stamp Simply Celebrates party! So.... here goes! When I saw this snowman paper, I just knew I had to make a card and make him center stage! So, away I went! I whipped out my sewing machine for a little zig here, a little zag there! I cut out a tag with my Spellbinders ribbon slide tag die and added some antique linen distress ink around the edges. The saying is from a Cornish Heritage Farms set called Joyeaux Noel and was stamped in Stonewashed Adirondack ink. Add some satin ribbon and a pearl, mat it up and you're almost done! It's hard to tell, but I added Candlelight Shimmerz to all of the snowmen to add some razzle dazzle!

Here's a close up! Can you kind of see it??? In real life, it's really super duper sparkly!!

All in all, an easy card that I think is just cute! It's kind of a heart warmer if you ask me!! :-)

Now.... to the party!!!!

We're on DAY 2 of a major celebration!! My bloggin' bud Sharon Johnson over at No Time To Stamp celebrated a huge milestone recently and now the festivities are underway to celebrate! She hit one million on her blog counter!!!! So, she invited her Stamp Simply design team along with some wonderful friends along to play! There will be candy and challenges and plenty of gift giving ideas ripe for the holiday pickings for 12 whole days! Today's challenge is over at Becky Oehlers' Place - Hemidemisemiquaver Design! The goal is to create an unique packaging idea that is perfect for the holiday gift giving season! She's got a crew of sample makers all aiming to please! So get ready to be "WOW"ed!

The second challenge is with Darlene Pavlick at Dar’s Crafty Creations! If saving postage is of interest to you — be sure to check it all out over at Dar’s today. There are some talented sample makers who have helped Dar out by providing some extra inspiration -- so check out the links!

Remember! If you want to try your hand at a challenge, you can upload projects and link to your blog in a comment or you can upload to Splitcoast using the key word SSC08!

Sharon Johnson - No Time To Stamp? - has a piece of candy up for grabs — be sure to stop in and see if you can Scor-It!!!

Becky also has some candy offerings at Hemidemisemiquaver Design - So stop by and check it out!

That's it my friends! I'll be back tomorrow with more Stamp Simply Fun!! Tomorrow, I'm playing along and will hopefully have some inspiration for those last minute Christmas card makers!!!

Until then!
