How exciting are the New Christmas Sarah Kays!







Oh my I love my Sarah Kays! And now there are some new ones!! The Christmas collection will soon be hitting the shelves and this is my first card with the new images. To see all of the new collection just visit Stampavie and while you are there click on the DT Blog, there are some really amazing works there, from all over the world! Oh just you wait there are all kinds of new images coming to Stampavie!






Ok now to my card, this week at the Sarah Kay Challenge there is a great sketch. I love this sketch, this is actually my second card this week with it! He He.. my first card - Oh I was so happy with it, wish I could show it.... but ooops I used a Sarah that isn't quite ready for "viewing". Just you wait... if you love Sarah's your are gonna be over the moon with what is coming! So I put that card aside and will show it when I get a green light. Then I made a second card with the new Christmas Collection. This is "The Joy of Giving", isn't she wonderful! You know what I like the best about her.... she can be used for more than Christmas, I am thinking she would make great Birthday Cards too!




I colored her with my Copics to match the Basic Grey Figgy Pudding paper, that I thought was perfect with all the presents. I matted with the red Basic Grey papers. Now I decided that I wanted the actual card stock to be the scallops on the right side. So I folded my card then punched it with the Martha Stewart Doily Lace Punch, then to make the "lace" show more I layered a piece of the red paper behind it. I used a Satin ribbon for the center band across the middle. Now we know it needed some bling right? Well I found a package of Heidi Swapp Bling Ruby frames, I cut them a part and made borders on the ribbon, and corners on the image. Then for just a bit more detail I gel pen stitched the borders of everything. I think it is a fun card, I can't wait to color in the other new images!



Don't forget to check out the other DT's work at the Sarah Kay Challenge Blog, these other girls really rock!








Also want to spread the word, my fellow DT, JayJay, from Sarah Kay Challenge and Stampavie has some really wonderful blog candy up! Rachelle Anne Miller stamps!!! Check it out! Her blog is StempelelfeJayJay .

And LIM my Spoon Full of Sugar DT buddie has some candy that makes me drool! Make sure to check out her blog The Voices in my Head and check it out too!

Ok, I am going to run... I am in a bit of panic mode. You see right now I have to go my Sunday local breakfast bunch, won't be there long as I have to get home and bake. Yes I am a bad girl. I didn't get the carrot cake made yesterday so I have to get it made... cooled and iced, decorate this fly boat cake thing, wrap my nephews present and be on the road by 1:40pm... to get to the birthday party on time. Yes.... panic mode! Hope you all have a great Sunday, and get inky!
