Time Out

Has it gotten to you yet?  If it hasn't more power to you.  If you've got everything under control why don't you join us at Shirley's 2 Girls for a twisted challenge.  This week the twist is "Flock".  I used it on the Santa hat trim. 
This image is "Christmas Cheers" and you can pick it up here in the S2G shop.  It's a digi image so you can make it as teeny tiny as you like or as large as the paper your printer can take.
Doesn't this chair look like the one you'd plunk in?  It's supposed to look like velvet, well maybe if you squint.  The papers are Graphic 45.  Can you see that I used one of the dp like a ribbon, it's the little striped pieces under the snowflake edges.  When you use this punch you get some snowflakes and a tiny strip of paper left over.  I've used all these pieces on the card.  You really have to look closely to find all the snowflakes but they are there and they've gummy bling in the centers.  Any flake you see on the plaid dp is one of the punched flakes.
If you're like me you're squeezing in Internet time here and there.  So I won't keep you much longer, just enough to list the deets and the challenges and to remind you to that we'd love to see your creation, so post it on the S2G challenge blog.  Who knows, maybe you'll be this week's winner.

So here's the deets:
stamp - S2G "Christmas Cheers" digi image
ink - HP printer; Ranger tea dye sponged on edges
paper - Georgia Pacific cs for image; Graphic 45 "Christmas Past" collection
miscellaneous - EK Success snowflake punch; Taylor's tiny twinkles, snowflake charm; ribbon, flock; copics

Here's the challenges:
Shirley's 2 Girls - use flock
Cupcake Craft Challenge #121 - non-tradional Christmas (I think the colors gold and pink are non-traditional)
Stampin' Royalty #50 - Bring on the Bling (the centers of all the snowflakes)
Allsorts week #82 - Last Minute Christmas
Stamp with Fun #89 - Christmas
For Fun - Christmas
Freshly Brewed #27 - Merry Christmas

Thank you for visiting, I hope you'll come back again.
