Sparkles Christmas: Shaped Cards

Hi, everyone! Happy August! Can you believe it's August already?! There really does seem to be a correlation between the speed that time passes and my age. Oh, well...

... what's a gal to do? This gal's gonna share a card for new the Sparkles Christmas Challenge that starts today.  :)

This month's challenge is Shaped Cards and was chosen by DT Member Helen N. Sounded like a perfect time to make a holiday card for SAS4Kids.

Doodlebug Design polar pals dp; Pink Paislee hey kid dp
stash blue; Recollections silver glitter paper; Distress Ink milled lavender and dusty concord core paper
inking: DI chipped sapphire, milled lavender, dusty concord, victorian velvet
Paper Smooches holly dies; Martha Stewart button punch
Stampin' Up! owl builder punch (for mouth circles); Marvy circle punch (for scarf knot)
Cuttlebug embossing folder; Marvy crimper
accents: Darice googly eyes; DMC floss
adhesives: Scotch ATG; Ranger multi medium matte; Zig 2-way pen; Zots glue dots; Recollections foam squares

All I can say about this cutie is, "Where's a Cricut when you need one?" This little guy was hand sketched and fussy cut. As the kids in school would've said, "You really need to get a life, Mrs. K.!" LOL After all this work, I've gotta make sure this brings a smile to an SAS4Kids, and I'm linking up to the Christmas in July 4 Kids Challenge.

Nancy chose such a fun challenge for this month. Hope you'll all join us for our Sparkles Christmas Shaped Card Challenge. Think I'll also share it at the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge.

Parting Thoughts

There are a few more days left to play along with our Words 2 Craft By Just Keep Swimming Challenge. The challenge ends Wednesday, and there is a Simon Says Stamp gift certificate up for grabs.

Have a great week! Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
