Santa is Coming to Wild Orchid Challenge and SWEET STUFF!!!!
A very happy Monday to everyone! I hope you all had a blast of a weekend and are already moving into an exceptional week. But somehow Mondays are just not as wonderful as Fridays....smiles!! I am going away for several days but will be back on Wednesday so the SUNDAY SENSATIONS winner may be announced a little bit later than usual!
For this fortnight at Wild Orchid Challenge we were asked to make sure that Santa was somewhere on our cards/projects. This was a really fun one so please come on over and check out the DT sample cards and decide to join in with us--we would love to see your Santas, too!!! In order to be eligible for the wonderful prize(s) always offered at the challenge, please remember to follow these little rules!!!
* All entries must have at least one WOC product
* You can combine our challenge with no more than 2 other challenges
* You must link back to the Wild Orchid Challenge blog
* NO back linking, new projects/cards only please
For my card I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting; the DP is from the Merry Christmas Glitter Paper Pad by Best Creation; and all background panels are machine stitched. Santa with Lantern from the Santa Collection 2008 from Magnolia-licious was stamped on Cryogen White, colored with Copics and Promarkers and adding Liquid Applique and glitters, and was cut out and propped up with dimensional tape. His beard and eyebrows were covered with Doodlebug Flock. The fence is actually from an old electric train set to which I added more Liquid Applique for a snowy effect. I then added 1/4" Red Satin Ribbon bows to dangle the Miniature Silver Ringing Bells. Rather than a Bow-Easy I used a dinner fork to make those tiny bows....smiles!!! The sentiment is a Magnolia Post-Santa Is Coming also from Magnolia-licious and from the aforementioned collection. The floral treatment is all by Wild Orchid Crafts: Red Mulberry Paper Poinsettias centered with Small Moonstone Brads and Aster Daisies, resting on Holly Leaves.
On the first panel on the inside I used more 1/4" Red Satin Ribbon bows to hold three ornaments from the Mixed Christmas Wooden Shape Embellishments set and on the second panel just a glitter star button.
SWEET STUFF!!!! To me, nothing says winter holidays and Christmas more than cute snowmen so let's have a little bit of SWEET STUFF for my FOLLOWERS!!!
I didn't have time to take pictures but what about if along with this cute Snowie with Bells we have some WOC Poinsettias, some bells, some snowflakes, and some holiday ribbons???? Just be sure to leave your comment by Wednesday, October 26 at midnight EST. Is that fun or not?? Good Luck!!
Thank you so much for dropping by today to visit me and I hope you will come back often!! It is a real joy to see you and to hear what you have to say about my creations!!! Have a beautiful week and I hope to see you again real soon!!! Big hugs!!!
