Christmas Stampin All Year Long "DIY Challenge"

Hi Friends! Happy Monday to you all! Gosh, I had a lousy weekend. On Thursday, I actually thought I was over my cold and on Friday, I started to feel sick again. I woke up on Saturday feeling worse than my original cold. I feel lousy . . .maybe I caught another cold on top of the first cold. I don't know what happened. I'm bummed.

Well it's Christmas Stampin All Year Long Challenge time again! This week's challenge is called "DIY Challenge" meaning "do it yourself". Basically, you will need to design your own card using your own layout. Anyway check out the detail at Christmas Stampin All Year Long and the beautiful sample created by the design team.

Hope you'll play along this week!

I won't go into much detail regarding my card. I colored Tilda with my Copic Markers. . .that's about it.

The snowflake on Tilda's hair is a sticker embellishment by Jolee's Boutique.

Card Details:

Stamps: Magnolia, Stampin Up
Paper: Purple (?), SU Bliss Blue, MME designer paper
Ink: Copic Markers
Accessories: Jolee's Boutique, Fiskar scallop Scissors, Swirl clip, Satin ribbon, Coluzzle Oval template, CB embossing folder
