Happy December 1st!

Hello Friends! I cannot believe I am writing December 1!! Wow, in a month it will all be over sad! We are going to Florida this year to spend some awesome time with the kids who live there. We have kids all over the states from Nevada, Eastern PA, Western PA and Florida. My parents are in Arizona...sure would be nice if we were all in one place. But, I always look forward to the time we get to share with all of them....well, most of the time! KWIM!!

Today I have two Christmas Cards I made and I am really happy with both of them! The first one is with an image by Digi Doodle Shop called Santa's arrival. The second I saw this digi I knew I had to color it! If you want to see beautiful, fun, loving...huge variety of images you need to go for they are awesome! Right now all of Digi Doodles Christmas images are 50 percent off!! Yes, 50 %  RUN! You surely will not be disappointed! I will be doing several cards with her images over the next few days and you will see why I love them so!

My second card is made with a red rubber stamp by Stampabilities called Winters Wish! I forgot how much I love doing scenery! I love the way it turned out...much better than last years!

Challenges  Why so many? Because I want everyone to see our Blog Hop at SSC and all the info is at the bottom of my posting!! Trust me this was very, very time consuming to enter this many challenges, so please come and hop with us!

TIP OF THE DAY! Adding Ribbon to your card. When you are adding thick ribbon or any ribbon to your card, it is too hard to try and wrap it around the card and tie the bow. What I the ribbon on the outside of the card stock and only tuck the ends in with Scor-tape.  Tie a piece of string around your ribbon to pull it slightly taunt as in the picture.

Make the bow using Bow Easy and directions on how to use Bow Easy by Suzanne Dean are here!

Cut the excess string off. Attache your bow using Scor-tape to where you pulled the ribbon a little bit taunt and you will have the appearance your ribbon and bow are one piece of ribbon!  See Picture below: Easy Peasy.

And this is what I don't want you to miss!!!
I will have a great tutorial for you and and to a random winner a $15.00 gift certificate to Susana's Custom Art and Card Design!!  You could buy two Bow Easy's! You have to come to SSC's, Simply Scrapping Crafts for there will be lots of prizes, tutorials and fun!! Wait until you see what the rest of the DT's has plan for you! Don't forget December 4th.

Thank you for stopping by!
