[DYSU] Challenge #102 - Christmas

Good morning! Wow - it is already December 13th! I can't believe it, less than a week and I will be on a plane. I'm not ready for this... i'm still trying to scour all the addresses together. A good deal of people I will see in person, for which I am so looking forward to! A bunch of others, I will be sending Christmas cards to that are perhaps late... but it will get done! (or so i hope...)

Tomorrow night we're hosting our Glühwein (mulled spice wine) and Cookies evening. I'm trying to make this a tradition to ring in the Christmas cheer among close friends and family. Florian and I made a bunch of Linzer Cookies this year, and I went to a cookie swap this past weekend. What a fun event. So isn't it appropriate that we're celebrating Christmas Time here are DYSU? So bring our your best Christmas spirits...

This week I am showcasing The Paper Shelter. What I dig the most about these images is that they come pre-colored. Great for when time is short.

Stamps: (Christmas Gift) The Paper Shelter; (Say It Loud - Holiday) Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Pure Poppy) Papertrey Ink; (Botanical Christmas & Winter Fairy Tale) Webster's Pages; (Dots & Stripes) Echo Park
Ink: (Versamark) Tsukineko
Embellishments: (Nestabilities - Labels Eighteen) Spellbinders; (Corrugated Cardstock) Recycled Stash; (Stamp 'n Stuff Embossing Powder - White Opaque) Stampendous!

This card aside from the fussy cutting went really fast. I really like how the text background was just the right shade of red - Not too bright and saturated, yet not too dull. This is an upclose look of the wonderful image...


Remember that we will be closing this little challenge group, but we have still a few more challenges lined up, great sponsors that have been generous up to the last bit, and we want to go out with a bang. So let's see those creations coming!

I'd like to invite you to hop on over to see the amazing creations by the rest of the DYSU team. Please leave them a loving comment, because they do appreciate some blog love :)

This week's sponsor:

* Winner’s Choice of 5 Digis

* $20 Gift Certificate

Pre-coloured digis are AMAZING - I only have a few but they are a fabulous time-saver. This one is so sweet - need to check them out :)
And, I love that mat! Is it scored, or corrugated, or how did you do that? Perfect amount of texture, Ren-Yi!

AND I forgot to say, have a fabulous trip! Christmas travel adds a special level of frantic preparation BUT I hope once you're there you'll relax & enjoy :)
