Welcome Christmas Into Your Heart

I am entering this card in The Stamping Shack "Anything Goes Challenge". My friend Sandy blogged about a new online Digital Store and new blog challenge. I'm all about helping someone out so I went and checked it out. I encourage you to do the same. I checked out their digital stamps and found some I liked.

The challenge is "Anything Goes". You can check out the details and the rules here. Here is my card.
Since I need to make Christmas cards I used the image  Polar Bear Love from The Stamping Shack. Instead of coloring the bear with my Copic Markers I used Liquid Pearls "white opal". It's actually prettier in person than in this photo. I did color the heart with Copic Marker R29 and matted the image with black cardstock. The background of the card I used World Win Metallic Glitter white and used a Tim Holtz snowflake embossing folder. The sentiment is from Stampin Up and I used red embossing powder on the same metallic paper and matted it with black cardstock. I used foam tape on both the image and sentiment for dimension.

On another note, the girls helped Mommy make cookies tonight to have for Thanksgiving.
I wonder if there will really be any left by then?! As you can see in the background, Daddy got the tree up and Mommy with the help of the girls got the lights on. Daddy also got all the outside lights on the house. The weather is so nice they sat outside to enjoy his handywork.
I am hoping to get mine up in a few days. Probably will start working on it Thanksgiving Day. We aren't celebrating as a family until Friday.

Although not quite as colorful as last nights the sunset was still beautiful.

Have a good one!

  7. This card is so sweet Valerie. The background embossing is gorgeous too. For sure the way you did on the polar bears are stunning with the liquid pearls. Your girls are so adorable too. Just made me miss my little girl too back home. So glad you played along with us the The Stamping Shack challenge.
