This weeks challenge was Red and Green - brought to you by ME!! I love red and green. I can almost smell the pine and see those bright red berries on the holly bushes with a sprinkling of snow. Ask me in a few months how I feel about snow though lol. It has been a glorious Thanksgiving weekend here in Southwestern Ontario. Lots of beautiful sunshine, turkey and pumpkin pie.

On this challenge I chose the adorable new High Hopes GINGERBREAD HOUSE. I embossed the image in black and coloured with a combo of Tombows and Distress Inks. I used my MS fence punch to make a little fence for the front yard. I embellished the fence with some small holly and a little red rhinestone. I put a red satin bow in the corner with a peppermint and some holly and this time I added Crystal ultra fine loose glitter (I know I can barely believe it myself - NO Stickles)

Hope everyone has a fabulous week and please join us for the

Thanks for stopping by...

  1. Hey Cathy!! Your card for your challenge this week was really awesome! I looked at this stamp and thought I wasn't talented enough to try it because it seems so detailed and small. But there you were with it and it was such a beauty and so beautifully colored! You are really talented! I've loved being on the team with you! Hope you are well! Best, Curt
