Hellooooo! I spent several days this week visiting Libby and playing in her stamp room. She also fed me well, but that's another story for another day.

I took the opportunity to play several challenges, so over the next few days I'll be sharing my projects. First up is my card for the current Jingle Belles challenge: Baby, It's GOLD Outside!

You may not be able to see it, but there IS gold in there. Really! The gold cord, the gold-embossed sentiment, and the gold metallic bling on the left edge of the banner. The patterned paper is Carta Bella So This Is Christmas, and the stripes in the wavy paper are gold-ish, too.

I followed the current September Sketch For You To Try:

even though I failed to use a Reverse Confetti stamp. Hey, I'm on the road, what can I say? I'll try to play again another day. (oooh, that rhymes)

More to come, so go read all your other blogs so you have time for my flood of challenge posts. I kid, maybe.

Thanks for stopping by!

Stuff I used: SU gold cord, Mystery Kraft card stock from a remnant pile, Victorian Gold embossing powder from Old Town Crafts, Hero Arts mystery Christmas set (for the sentiment), and the following:
