Christmas Stampin All Year Long Challenge #24 - Stampless Challenge

Hello Friends! Well it's Monday so it's Christmas Stampin All Year Long Challenge time again! We're on Challenge #24 and this week, it's Vicki of Summerthyme Studio turn to host! Whoohoo! This week's challenge is another fun challenge! The challenge is "no stamping". . .

Okay. . .I love this challenge! Why? Because the one thing that takes long when I create a card is coloring a stamped image! With this stampless card. . .well, it took me 15 minutes to create because all the images are 3D stickers!

Why don't you start your Christmas cards and get it over with! Chistmas Stampin All Year Long challenge blog can help you with ideas. Check out the awesome cards created by the fabulous design team!

I'm going to create another stampless card some time this week. . .I have a ton of Christmas stickers and embellishments!

You know. . .I just realized that my lips are sunburned after walking around in the hot sun at Disneyland. My lips feel a bit weird. I feel a burning sensation on my lips and no matter how much I lick my lips, it feels dry. I didn't realize lips can get sunburned too. It feels really strange.

Tomorrow is my daughter's college orientation and registration. Parents are required to attend the orientation which will be an all day affair. My daughter will be sleeping over at the college. I wonder where they're going to sleep? I have no idea. I guess I'll find out at the orientation.

I anticipate my wallet will be a lot slimmer after tomorrow. Uggh! College is so expensive. I remember when I was in college, my tuition was only $800 a semester my freshman year. By my 4th year, the tuition was $2000 and that's considered "cheap".

Anyway. . .stop by Christmas Stampin All Yeal Long and play along with us, okay! We'd love to see your cards!!

Hope you all have fantastic Monday!

Hey Maria,

Welcome home!!! I love your stampless card. I got pooped last night, and only posted mine on the CSAYL blog. Will post mine on my blog this morning.

Well, you did a great job here on your stampless card. Great challenge Vicki put out, as it forced us to create w/anything other than our stamps, eh?!

Been keeping up with your blog postings, and reading about the grad party at DL. Glad you n' your family got to go and enjoy the weekend as well. What a smart idea. That's one thing about here, we can't just drive to somewhere and stay overnight - unless you talking Ko'olina or Turtle Bay! LOL... I wish they'd build a DL here!!! That would be COOL!!!!

Well, glad that you're back. Now to catch up with what's going on in BL, huh?! Good Luck! It takes me WEEKS on catching up with what I miss in a couple of days.

Big Hugs,

Marcia said...

Maria - this card is sooooo cute! Will you make all my cards for me? LOL


Cindy Haffner said...

Oh this is so darling, awesome job.

Michelle said...

Glad you had a great trip to Disneyland - I bet the fireworks were AMAZING!

Lovin' your CA-UTE Christmas card - so FUN! I always forget to use my spellbinder dies - maybe I need to put them someplace where I see them more, LOL!

I know what you mean! I feel like I cheated when I made my card. At least yours LOOKS like a lot more time was spent making it. Ü

Kyoko said...

Good Lord woman ... I want to start Christmas shopping after seeing your card! LOL! Beautiful!

Hey, I wonder if your lips are wind burned? I learned the hard way on my last trip to Vegas when it was sooo windy, my lips hurt so much it was hard to even talk ... YIKES! I think my children enjoyed that part. LOL!

Cathy said...

Maria, this is beautiful!! So colorful and cheerful!! I love it!! I'm sorry I'm behind with my visits, I'm trying to catch up. My computer has been naughty lately!! I'm going to have to take it to the PC DR. UGHHHH!!

Hugs, Cathy
