1st post- GDT Christmas Stampin' All Year Long

Well, I am just tickled pink to be a GDT over at Christmas Stampin' All Year Long (CSAYL).
I found their challenge blog one day then BOOM I entered a card for that challenge & BAM they picked me to be a GDT!!! WOOHOO! I just love making Christmas Cards, maybe because it is my favorite holiday. All those carols, presents, yummy meals & times spent with family......it just warms the cockles of my heart!!!

CSAYL is changing things up a bit & in doing so has wonderful news!
 They've decided to start sponsoring rubber stamp/digital stamp companies several times each month.
How fun is that?


 Pink Cat Studio was kind enough to sponsor this week's challenge & we're doing a sneak peek of the new stamp sets that will be released on July 16th. There will be 5 different sets that will be released as rubber stamps. In the mean time, a few of the Christmas images are currently available for purchase as digital images so stop by Pink Cat Studio and check them out.

The winner of this week's challenge will receive TWO of the new Pink Cat Studio Christmas rubber stamp sets to be released so be sure to stop by CSAYL and play along in this week's challenge. (The winner will be announced on July 16th). Good luck!

This week's challenge is a "free challenge" meaning create a card any way you want. . .show us your creativity!!

The set I am presenting is called Christmas Penguins! Aren't they cute!




I colored my images with watercolor pencils , baby oil & blending stumps. I used BG Eskimo Kisses DP with various color cardstock. I printed the penguin on the candy cane swing twice & popped him up for a 3D effect. I added glitter to the bods of both my lil penguins & finished them off with liquid applique to the rims of their Santa hats!
Finally , some brads in the candy cane swing bows on top, a couple buttons & of course the famous Christmas Pointsetta completed my card ensemble!!
I had much fun creating this card!

Please stop by the CSAYL (Christams Stampin' All Year Long) challenge blog &amp give the DT some Holiday Wishes &; play along for a chance to win not one but TWO rubber stamp sets from Pink Cat Studio! .

 ABC Christmas Challenge- N for Noel (anything Christmas)
Corrosive Challenge- Christmas Time
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday- Christmas in July
Simple Doodles- holiday fun
