Christmas Stamping is BACK!!!! Challenge #41 What's Cookin'!

We're Back!!!! So excited to be getting a start on my Christmas Cards early again this year!!! I also get to be the challenge hostess this week..........what's cookin' ? A recipe Challenge! Please make a card using only 2 layers, 3 buttons and some glitter!

I used this sweet image from Mo's Digital Pencil for my card! Using a nestie as a template allowed me to achieve a multi layered look on my card!!! Rub ons and some Martha Stewart Pine Bough punch outs also gave me some dimension without bulk!

I coloured the image with Copics.......the little bit of glitter was added with Copic Spica Pens! Cardstock is Pine Green and the ribbon is from M's. I added a wee bit of snow with some white gel pen! If you know me well, you KNOW I love the snow scenes, although I wish that dratted snow would go away!

Our Team is back in full force this year, along with a couple of newcomers, my BFF Jacqui Lines and My Long Distance BFF Jeanne Streiff as well as Peggy, whom I've never met!

This year will be a little different in that on the first Friday of the Month, the team will challenge you to make some fun gift items. The rest of the month will focus on Christmas Card Challenges!

Sure hope you'll play along and link your cards on the CSAYL site

Happy Stamping!
