Hello Everyone! I hope you are all having a fabulous World Card Making day!! I have spent much of my day blogging...may not be very productive but I have seen some really amazing blogs today. I did manage to get a card or 2 done.
My card for today is for 3 challenges. I have used the sketch from The Midnight Madness Challenge-they always provide great sketches and their design team is incredible!!
My second challenge is for A Spoon Full of Sugar and they want to see your Christmas cards and finally, Simon Says Stamps which was a challenge to use red & green- great for Christmas! LOL
Speaking of Simon Says Stamps they have a 2nd challenge running for 24 hours only. They are asking you send a card to Paige. If you've visited my blog before you know the details, if not you can visit Erin's blog for all the details.

Paige is a 13 yr old girl who lost an arm in a boating accident. Erin is asking everyone that's willing to send her a card and at the same time you can enter Erin's blog candy. The candy will be awarded when 200 people pledge to send a card. She's almost there- already at 165!!

My little girl is all ready for a great holiday party! She is wearing a green velvet dress-every girl needs a great green velvet dress for the holidays! The dress is paper-pieced and accented with red gemstones to match her red gemstone earrings. My image is from the newly released Christmas/Winterline from Sunshine & Giggles Stamps. The whole line is currently on sale for $40- thats half off the price if buying individually!! But you better hurry....the sale ends October 15th.
Supplies: Bazill cardstock, dp from K & Co. and Graphic 45, prima poinsettias, red gemstones from The Paper Studio, copics.
This post is getting rather long but I also wanted to mention some blog candy...and it's some VERY impressive candy. Midnight Madness is giving away a workbox....what is a workbox you

I know I would love to have one of these!!
Well I am off to create....or maybe hop some more, hehehe. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
