Ribbon and Lace and a wee bit of SWEET STUFF!!!

A very happy Monday to all of you!! Gosh and we better be ready for a new month because we are moving closer to the holidays with each day! I have no idea where the first 10 months of this year have vanished to but I do know that the holidays are soon upon us....eeeeek!
 
Today is my turn to post on the Whimsy Inspirations Blog and it's the first day of a new challenge at Wild Orchid Challege so I hope that you will visit both places!
 
Be sure to check out the Christmas Shop at Whimsy Stamps where you will find the most popular holiday image stamps, sentiment sets, designer 6X6 papers, and metal crafting dies which are all perfect for your holiday crafting! 
 
At the Wild Orchid Challenge this fortnight, the theme is RIBBON and LACE and, as always, there is a nice prize from the Wild Orchid Crafts shop for some lucky participant! So please come on over and join in with us and show us your lovely creations. Just be sure to read the rules for the challenge!
 
 
For my card, I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting and the DP is from the Saint Nick Collection by Fancy Pants Designs. Tha absolutely darling image is Friendship Is The Greatest Gift designed by the incomparable Sylvia Zet of Wee Stamps for Whimsy Stamps. The image was colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding a touch of Prisma Glitter for the ear muff. Gosh, this image is so sweet and says so much!!! I have used some pearl trim from Michaels for the left border and for the horizontal I used wide ribbon, White Net Lace, and narrow ribbon for the bow, topped by a Fancy Pants chipboard JOY button. The single Self-Adhesive Pearls and all flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I have used a 40mm Wild Rose, Open Roses, Hip Rosebuds, and Cherry Blossoms.
 
SWEET STUFF!!!
 
 
I have TWO extra Friendship Is The Greatest Gift images that I would like to place in a new home. They will be travelling to their new homes with some more surprises so they will not be alone on their trip. Just leave a comment before Friday, November 8 at 8 AM ET and you will be in for the draw!!! Good Luck!!
 
Thank you all so much for dropping by and I hope to see you again real soon and hope to be back into the swing of things soon also! Until the next time, I send big hugs to each of you!!!
