Scribbles Designs is Ready for the Holidays

Today I reached a milestone - I finished this year's Christmas card stash! This one and other cards I've made after December 1 are being hand-delivered. AS you may have guessed, the new challenge theme at Scribbles Designs is "Getting Ready for Christmas.
And what better way to get ready is to decorate the tree? My card features a lovely selection of Christmas balls, ready to hang. The Scribbles Designs' images I used are  #889 Mason Jar, and a Friday Freebie, Ornaments. I chose the Decosse's Dynamite Designs paper before I colored my images, so the paper set my monochromatic vision. Color-blocking seemed to fit the card nicely, with a few lines of adhesive jewels and some rub-on holiday greetings.

One Last Card

This month is crazy busy,  but I still wanted to let you know that the 12 Months of Christmas has one last challenge for 2019.  The guest sponsor is Scribbles Designs, and I used a digi image from the store called #0133 Melting For to create my card.
Actually, the DT has this month off, but I wanted to feature a card using our sponsor's image. My card was originally posted in January of 2017. I printed my word art image onto colored cardstock, using papers from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles.
Of course, to qualify for the store gift certificate from Scribbles Designs, you will have to create a new holiday card. Just link it to the 12 Months of Christmas blog, and good luck!

Getting Ready for Christmas at Ike's World Challenge Blog

OMG I can't believe 2019 flew by so fast! Here it is, 22 days before Christmas! I may still have a ton of things to do, but one thing I have finished is making my Christmas cards for the year. I mailed some out just after Thanksgiving, and the rest are for family and friends I'll be seeing throughout the next 3 weeks. Whew!!
This month Ike's World Challenge Blog asks crafters to create something on the lines of "Getting ready for Christmas." I  like a well-decorated home for this holiday, so I created a card featuring a previous year's Christmas freebie image from Ike's Art Store, which just happens to be a lovely table decoration (it doesn't go on the dinner table since that will be over-weighted by platters of holiday fare).
Since both my image and my patterned paper are design busy, I kept embellishments at a minimum. After coloring my image with Copics, I added a little Stickles for sparkle, a few tiny jewels for same, and some faux stitching that makes a nice homey border.
How did you do on your holiday cards? Did you make your goal? Are you short a bit? I may just have an excess this year! I'll either save them for next year, or find more people to give them to. That's using some Christmas spirit, isn't it? LOL
Don't forget to link up whatever you choose to create with the main blog for your last chance to win your choice of free digis from Ike's Art (last chance in 2019, that is!). Happy Holidays to all the lovely and talented ccrafters out there!

For the Guys at Scribbles Designs

Today I created this card for the challenge at Scribbles Designs. The theme is For the Guys, and I just had to make mine humorous. I used a digi image from the Scribbles Designs Store called Snow Sign and placed it directly onto a scenic paper from the Nature of Christmas Paper Kit from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles before printing it up.
My image needed minimal coloring, but I did use Copics and gel pen on the image, sentiment and paper. I tossed a few glittery snowflakes and a row of pearls for embellishments and there you have it. Got to give it to "him" - it's a very clever way to get out of shoveling that white stuff, don't you think? LOL
You have until the 14th of the moth to link your own projects to the Scribbles Designs Challenge Blog for your chance to win free digis from the Scribbles Store. Good luck and have fun!
