Christmas Stampin All Year Long #32 - 08-31-09

Hi Folks! Happy Monday and Happy Challenge time. We're on week #32 at Christmas Stampin All Year Long! We have about 10 more cards to go. The plan is to end the challenges on November 16 so we can take a break and enjoy the holidays! Whoohoo! This week it's Vicki of Summerthyme Studio to host our challenge and her challenge is always fun!

This week's challenge is to create a card using the traditional Christmas colors, red and green and a touch of gold or silver to your card. How easy is that? Well, I used gold foil cardstock for the matting and heat embossed the image with gold embossing powder. It's hard to take a good picture of the embossing. . .it actually looks better in person.

I'm going to make this post short. I don't have much to talk about right now! LOL! Surprising isn't it. . .I usually have a lot to say!! I'll save you the pain of having to read a long post! LOL!

Hope you all will play along in the challenge this week. . .can't wait to see your beautiful card!! Be sure to stop by Christmas Stampin All Year Long and check out the beautiful cards the design team created!!

I saw this on another blog and I knew it was yours even before I saw the watermark. I have that ribbon. I just have no energy to make even Halloween cards. I need a vacation with just me and my stamps. At least they dont snore.
