Happy Holly Days!

How about some Christmas today? I cranked out a bunch of Holiday cards for the Verve new release challenges last Friday. If you did all 5 sketches, you were entered for a chance to win some FREE stamps. I was so excited when Julee announced the winners....I was one of the Lucky 6. Yeah me! Since I won 1 set, I also bought 1. You won't believe this... I ordered late Friday night, used standard shipping, and my stamps were here on MONDAY!!!! How's that for customer service?!!!
This was one of my favorite of the sketches from the five. Here's the card I did for the challenge followed by another one I did with the Holly Jolly Christmas set I won. This one is also a new stamp, it was a FREE digi download that Julee offered up last week. Aren't those mittens just darling? Papers are fun Jillibean soup. I guess I was still in a polka dot mood cause without knowing it I used some grey dots by October Afternoon on this next one.
I added stickles glitter to the ornaments, punched them out and popped them up. See their hooks? I'm a little embarrassed to admit that after almost 9 years of stamping that I finally bought a silver encore ink pad. What a cool ink, I love how it stamps. So there you have it. Have a Holly Jolly day! Check back tomorrow for our Limelight product and sketch challenge. We have a Rock Star guest designer with us, you won't want to miss out! Hugs, Lisa
