RAKs and Challenges!

Here are a couple more Christmas cards/RAKS from friends. This first card is from my friend, Chris Salyers, and of course the glitter and CE aren't nearly as sparkly in the picture as in real life. Thanks, Chris! This is one cute card, and I LOVE teddy bears! :)

This sweet kitty cat card is from Jessica George, one of my best friends in the bloggin'/scrappin' world! :) She was also a DT member at KL Stampin N Scrappin last year, and I will truly miss working with her every week. You check out her lovely blog by clicking on the link on her name. She is also giving away some scrumptious blog candy. Check out the photo to the right for more on that too.

Now these were SO much fun to create, and ya know . . . I just can't stop using this sketch from the January challenge at KL StampinNScrappin DT blog. It is pretty versatile, if I do say so myself, and I really LOVE this MS doily punch too. Using buttons was the challenge over at Sparkle's blog for this week, and I just had to play along. I am working on my Christmas card stash for 2010 so I don't have to fret over them this December -- besides I still had this one out on my craft table to use. :)

Card details for the 2 photos above:
Santa stamp from TAC stamped in Memento tuxedo black ink and colored with Copics, MS doily punch, oval scalloped nesties, Eskimo kisses paper, sakura glitter pen (in his beard but not so easily visible in the photo), misc ribbon, MS snowflake punch, Rhonna Christmas buttons, white gel pen and liquid applique. The bashful blue CS piece was ran through the divine swirls cuttlebug folder.
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you get a chance to be creative this week, too! Check out the fun challenges mentioned above for chances to win!! :)

Hugs and Happy Stampin'!!

Way to get moving on the 2010 holiday cards; I'm trying to start, but just can't handle red and green together yet ;). Beautiful lace borders on your sweet Santa card!!

I love how you used the lace edge on more than one layer. And I agree, your sketch is very, very versatile! Great card.
