? Christmas ..... already!

I have had the Festive Friday challenge sitting in my to do list for quite some time, but this is the first time I have attempted it.  So to go with that, the latest WMS Christmas card challenge, hosted by Charmaine Stack and the theme is Glitter.

So, lots of glitter and my favourite Christmas sweet treat - Gingerbread.  I am too lazy to decorate it but love baking and of course eating it (any time of year really).  

What you need
Cardstock - PTI white
Glitter card - Bella! Glitz Rouge
Stamps - WMS Nutcracker Sweet, Candy Jar Christmas Fillers
Ink - SU Early Espresso
Punch - SU scallop
Stickles - Red, Diamond


I missed the dessert option for Dynamic Duos, initially but I was determined to use a bear for this sketch.  Must be telepathic!  

What you need
Cardstock - PTI white; SU Pacific Point
Stamps - PTI Baby Button Basics
Ink - VersafinStame Onyx Black;  Memento Bahama Blue
Copic T1
Various punches - SU
Glossy Accents
Goosebumps - K and Company


And finally for this weekend - 2 colours I don't use much and 1 quite a bit.  And yes, you guessed it, another piece of 12 x 12 bites the dust - very satisfying!  I admit to a bit of recycling too.  The twine around the button came with my first (I anticipate many more) consignments of Cas-ual Fridays Stamps.  I had a very hard time limiting the number of stamp sets.  It's all Susan Raihala's fault, she has created some really great cards with these stamps lately.

I digress.  More baby cards, male or female this time I think

What you need
Cardstock - PTI white;  SU Calypso Coral, Island Indigo
Patterned Paper - Pebbles Inc Ever After (Sparkle)
Stamps - PTI Baby Button Basics
Ink  - Versafine Onyx Black
Die - SB classic scalloped circles
Pen - SU Calypso Coral
Button - PTI
