IO Stamps Thursday Challenge-Holiday Greetings

HI!  Are you all ready for the Holiday's yet? For my friends South of the Border, I hope that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!! I'm not remotely ready for Christmas here yet. I'm still working out some health issues, so I've been a little scarce. This has been a crazy six months and i'm hoping that treatment for my latest diagnosis of severe sleep apnea, will leave me feeling more rested. I want my energy back! That is ALL I want for Christmas. To feel that i'm finally on the mend!!!

This week's challenge is to create a Holiday Card.

I had fun building on this fun pop up design that I downloaded for my Silhouette.

I embossed the edges of the white sections with Gold embossing powder, as they were a little stark on their own. The Joy Sentiment is Stamped in Artichoke Ink, while the Christmas Cheer Sentiment is embossed in Gold as well.
I used two different dies for the Wreath as I wanted lots of dimension

On the base I used  the Twig Wreath Die Set and then topped it with Holly Wreath

I hope you like this fun card and will play along in the challenge.

Hop on over to the IO Stamps Blog to get the list of designers who are sharing a sample today and to enter your design in the challenge

Have a safe Holiday,

Impression Obsession Thursday Challenge-Thanksgiving Wishes

I have to start by saying, I'm bad! Very very bad! The challenge this week is to create a Thanksgiving Card. Here in Canada, we celebrate Thanksgiving in October. So I truly do apologize that I didn't create a Thanksgiving Card

I was however, BUSTING at the seams to share this fun card with you!!! I designed it for a get in shape card class I taught last evening!!!

The ladies were totally pleased with all the dies that they got to experiment  with in the creation of this card!

Here's the list

I used one of my favourite Christmas Sentiments

I am almost certain that most of the Team is playing in the challenge, however head on over to the IO Blog to see who's playing for sure. You can also enter your creation there. Remember the challenge is Thanksgiving. To be eligible for the prize, don't be a rebel like me and follow the rules!

Good Luck!
