DS72 & a Blog Candy Winner! ~ Ho, Ho, Ho!

Hello Wednesday!  I am so excited to reveal my blog candy winner for Sunday's Birthday Blog Hop.  (Yes, I was one of the team members with hidden "blog candy.")  I am terrible at keeping secrets!  So glad I can reveal the winner.  :-)  Thanks to everyone who stopped by to wish Kelley Holland, the owner of Our Daily Bread Designs a happy birthday!  I know she appreciated all of your birthday wishes.  And now for the winner...  I feel like Santa Claus...  :-)

Congrats to Kathy O! 

Please reach out to me within 48 hours so I can get your prize pack out!  Thanks again to everyone who took time out of their day to play along! 

Today I am taking a few moments to play along with Jen at The Deconstructed Sketch. By now, everyone knows how I feel about sketches! They make me SO happy! And this one is no exception...

I decided to pull out a fun stamp set recently sent to me by Kelley Holland, owner of Our Daily Bread Designs and North Coast Creations. This set is from NCC and is called Holly Jolly Christmas. Kelley and crew travel almost every weekend to stamp and craft shows to show their wares including booths for both Our Daily Bread Designs and North Coast Creations. If you get a chance to check NCC out in person, please do! The images are darling!

Santa Claus is coming to town...

Several layers of coordinating DP by Simple Stories, kraft and card stock along with some lace and pearls make up this fun card. I love the traditional red and green but I also like nontraditional colors. I think the kraft adds a country/vintage feel. A few paper punched evergreen springs and a cute copper jingle bell add festive touches. And isn't Santa darling?  And he was a blast to color! So fun! Thanks for stopping by! Hope you are working on your Christmas cards too!

Until next time...
