CCCB week 25 ~ Hooray for the Holidays!!!

It is time for a new challenge over at City Crafter Challenge Blog again.
This week challenge is hosted by talented Cheryl Nelson "Hooray for the Holidays"!
You can make any holiday card, e.g Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas etc, the choice is yours!

I've made a glittered pink christmas card


I just love putting these edge punches together and make a background out of it, I did a white wedding card with the same concept HERE, and will be showing another one soon. Just love making them.


Hop over to City Crafter Challenge Blog to see what the other DT had for you. This week we are honored to have Arielle Gordon as Guest Designer, this is her 2nd time here for CCCB, so you'll know, she is back by popular demand!!!!

Blackleaf Studios is giving the winner of CCCB a set of digital paper, play along to stand a chance to win this fabulous prize.

Look what I've found at yard sales!!!

As you all know, I am a city girl, never been to a garage sale or yard sale before, I am also a night owl, getting up early for yard sale? you must be kidding, so after I've moved to Las Vegas, I've seen a lot of yard sales signs on weekends, but never thought of going to one mainly because I want to sleep till 12 noon on weekends.

Last week, on our way to breakfast, alright, I should not called it breakfast since it is 12 noon, so yah, we had waffles, eggs and sausage for lunch then. Back to my story, we passed by this yard sales and I told my husband, I must take a look, so here it is, look what I've found?

12" x 12" scrapbook paper tray for $2.25, a quarter for a tray, I grabbed all 9 of them.


Now my cardstock has a place....


Thanks for visiting and thanks for your lovely comments!!
