Sorry that the draw didn't get done yesterday, between the really far away child and football, I forgot to do the draw.. and every time I thought of it, I couldn't do it. I went to random.org to pick a winner.....and, the winner of the surprise candy is judy! Judy, please email me HERE and I will get your package off to you!
So about a week and a half ago, a friend called, and asked if I could make about a dozen cards for the next day... YIKES!!! I said sure, it might take me a bit into Friday to get them done... so I used the same sketch ( I believe it's a Clean and Simple sketch) and just changed the cardstock, ink, stamps and paper. I am very happy with how they turned out.

OK, I have hit 100 posts since I started blogging.... so, it's time for some blog candy!! All you have to do is say what you are most thankful for this Christmas / holiday season, and your favourite Christmas family tradition. I will randomly choose someone on the 19th of December. Unfortunately, I can only send to Canada and the USA. And it's a surprise, so no pictures of the candy.
The snowmen tags I did on shipping #5 tags, with Vintage Sepia ink, and Hero Arts stamps. I stamped the snowman on the tag, and on scrap cream cardstock, coloured, and cut out the snowman on the scrap cardstock. I then masked the snowman and over stamped in Friend Definition ( vertical tag) and Musical Background ( horizontal tag). With the vertical tag, I just added a couple of punched circles with the Hero Arts sentiment "Wishes of Joy". and foam mounted it on the tag. With the musical background snowman, I hand cut a banner and stamped "fa la la la la" and taped it to the snowman, using foam tape for the far end of the banner for dimension. I then foam mounted the second snowman over the first snowman.

The middle two tags were done in Distress inks as well. I used Merry Christmas trees to stamp the trees, then stamped Season's Greetings at the bottom of the tag. For the reindeer, I used the reindeer from Swirl Christmas, stamped on a musical background distressed tag, distressed a scalloped oval tag, and stamped Merry Christmas on it, and foam mounted the sentiment.
For the trees,. I distressed a #5 shipping tag, stamped Friend Definition on the tag. I then stamped the Sparkle Tree on the tag. I took some scrap distressed cardstock, punched out the circles, then stamped the sentiments, and foam mounted them for the base of the tree.
