Preparing for Christmas and Prezzies for Me!!!

It's hard to believe that Christmas really is just around the corner. I have a ton of cards to get made and with me working full time again wow, where is the time to get them all done? So, I have started now!!! I know it isn't real early but honestly, I usually make them all the weekend after Thanksgiving to be mailed out by the 5th of December - yeah I usually wait til the last minute for everything!!! But, the new Kenny K Christmas images have gotten my creativity jumpstarted!!!!

I've used this card for the following challenges:

Stamping Vacation - NO NO NO, using an image that begins with an S is a NO NO NO!!
Kenny K's Krafty Girlz Challenges - Make it Christmas
Creative Inspirations - Sketch Challenge
Craftalicious Challenges - Anything Goes
Ellephantastic Cards & Crafts Challenge Blog - Anything Goes
A Spoonful of Sugar - Winter Wonderland
Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - Inspiration
Just Inspirational Challenges - Anything Goes
Papercutz Challenges - Anything Goes

My card:


Wonder what the prezzies part is about??? Well, I won a prize from the Stamping Vacation Blog Hop a couple weeks ago and it came today!!! I am so stinkin' excited to play with the new Sparkle and Sprinkle stamps that I got!!

Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
