I hope that you enjoyed a Happy Holiday with your friends and family! I've been a bit of a slacker as far as stamping goes for the last couple of weeks, but this week I enjoyed stamping for fun and playing in some of the challenges over at Splitcoaststampers. Today the challenge was to Break out the Party Dress.
Janet Klien's Pretty Party Dress is the perfect image for paper piecing. I stamped the image on the pretty paper from Splendid collection by Authentique. Don't you love the coordinating papers? It makes designing cards with multiple designer paper so easy! I cut a tiny tag from my Tim Holtz die and added a diction cardstock sticker, also from Authentique. Scalloped punches add a little punch for a border and some foliage from a Sizzix Sizzlit adds a little more dimension.
Also, I hadn't got around to posting my challenge card from last wednesday (yep, I've been a stamipin' slug!) so here goes
If you'd like to participate in the challenge, here's the scoop!
The challenge is to create a card that reflects your wishes for 2012.........I can sum it up easily
I want to be Happy............. I intend to make sure that I remain Happy throughout the year. If I find myself UNHAPPY, I will do something behaviourally or cognitively to get back to HAPPY. That's it in a nutshell. I am going to be the captain of my own ship this year....not sure of the destination, but I do know that it is going to be a positively pleasurable trip. I may get off course, but will apply my self navigational skills to get back on track. Perhaps I'll take the road less traveled and leap over the puddles and potholes that serve to slow me down, but I know that 2012 is my year and I will be one Happy Dragon! The Year 2012 is the Year of the Dragon and I just happen to be one of those fearless creatures! It's my time to shine!
Hope all your wishes come true in 2012
If you're donning your favourite Party dress to ring in the New Year, enjoy a fun and safe evening.
Love and Hugs,
