My card for today started out with an idea to use a die cut bauble for Christmas Kickstart, then I remembered it's the last day of the month for Rudolph days, so thought a double challenge well thinking about my design I grabbed some left over acetate ( left over from making ethe great-grands Valentines) to make a clear card, and that is the challenge at the Jingle Belles Rock so now added another challenge to a card, rarely do I combine challenges with one card but it just sort of worked out that way. ABC Christmas challenge is also in the mix...D is for Diecuts. I just can't believe it took me all day to put it together, well 75% of the time is always looking for that one die or stamp that is in the "safe" place.

Flowers Flowers Everywhere is the new Challenge at Shopping Our Stash, it will be so nice seeing all the flowers in the gallery as right now I'm looking at piles of snow/ice with more to come. I had a plan as always and I usually try to have a plan "B" for those times that I have put plan "A" in that safe place, I was positive I knew where the Hero Arts Poppy stamp was, but it wasn't there so with no plan "B" I had to put my thinking cap on. I'm sure you have been where I was not able to get by the fact I WANTED to use the Poppy Stamp so I was having trouble thinking past it, finally I remembered a 3D folder I bought early last year and had never used it, in my defense I needed to google how to make a sandwich for it, so checked Mr. Google and you don't need any special plates so I'm now in love with the folder and want more. Enough gabbing and let's get on with the challenge.

Here I am with card #3 for the challenge at the Jingle Belles, I might not get a 4th done (I was trying to catch up since I missed (avoided) the sticker challenge, Lauren and Stephanie use stickers and they look awesome I use sticker and guess what, it looks just like stickers on a background, but I did want to keep up with my 2 cards for each challenge.

I'm back again with the second card using and embossing folder for the Jingle Belles Rock Challenge. I do plan on a bit of a catch-up as I didn't get the 2 done for the last challenge (life gets in the way of crafting_ Again I used a House Mouse Designs stamp, I have a lot of them in my collection and are my favourite to colour.

What a great challenge at the Jingle Belles Rock Challenge Blog ~~ My Sweet "Embossable" You, It gave me the oomph to use my embossing folders, I would like to try new techniques with them and since tomorrow is "Family Day" a provincial holiday I might just try one, Stephanie inspired me with her Faux Patina technique from Splitcoast Stampers. Well on to my card I am a couple of cards shy this month I did miss the last challenge, so I'm hoping to double up with this one.

Hello and welcome to Shopping Our Stash's 490 post going "Back In Time" to challenge 49 and repeat it, Anything starting with a "B" so I went with Birthday and Brads and added a super cuter Butterfly to round the "B's" off. I shopped my stash as the brads are ones I got/bought when I was on the Eyelet Outlet Blog in 2017, The papers were all scraps, even the sentiment was one I stamped and set aside.
