My sister wanted cards with blue Christmas lights to give to our friends who are police officers and fire fighters. So, late last Wednesday night, on our way home from a book reading (great book about her God Mothers' parents in 1890 - My Darling Anna) we got this idea. I called my friend Stamp Katie to see if she had a Christmas light or a string of lights stamps. She was sure she didn't, so when Julie and I got to my house, I dug out the tub of my holiday stamps. Well, lo and behold, I had a rubber backed stamp of Christmas lights - so here is one of the cards I made for her.

At Stamp Something's challenge blog, it was Winter Wonderland. I am loving this penguin stamp from the set Penguin Love from There She Goes. I paired him with the juggling snowballs and then used the Moonstruck and Crystal Blue papers from CTMH along with my Nestabilites. I then grabbed the stripe from the DCWV Holiday Christmas stack. I had these little snowflakes (by Favorite Findings- I think I got them at Joann's to use on my nephews' Christmas stockings) so I added them with some lightly wired white ribbon. I have 13 personal Christmas cards done so far (the 37 business ones are done and mailed) so I need to get busy getting more done and sending them out this week.

At Stamp Something's blog
the challenge was Glitzy Somethings. SO, I decided to use a stamp set from Close To My Heart called New Fallen Snow that I embossed in glitter ep and then used Moonstruck ink and sponged it on the snowflake. I cut it out and layered it. I used some rhinestones from my stash. I am sorry this is so quick but I got ran into by my kid on her Trials Bike Friday night and have a huge ly swollen knee - It was an accident and I just have to learn to leap out of the way quicker!!

Today's challenge at Clearly I Stamp was a theme of Winter. That was easy for me as I have been doing a few cards between the lawnmower cards. I love this little guy, he is so cute, just sliding down the hill!! He is from the set called Just Chillin' at Clear Dollar Stamps. I used some green and hollyhock paper from CTMH along with Hollyhock ricrak!

This weeks challenge on the There She Goes blog was a color challenge. We were to use red, green and blue. I grabbed one of the newest sets from There She Goes, Penguin Love and inked up some stamps. I used olive, crystal blue and star spangled blue inks along with a sweet leaf marker to color my trees and igloo and penguin. I added some colors of papers to match and then found this little piece of ribbon to add to it. I used icicle stickles for the snow on the igloo.
