Hello, Friends.....

I'm here with a quick post for the MFP Sketch with a Twist Challenge with a Christmas theme twist.  Have you noticed that I'm always the last one to get my card in for these challenges????  Well, it's not that I procrastinate...it's that I am chasing Little Peach around and don't have much time to make cards.  At night after she's in bed is usually when I try to get my things out to play.  Well......note to self:  don't use glitter glue and hope to make a "quick" card!  Ha.  Takes time to dry.....duh!  But I love glitter glue on my Christmas cards, so what's a grandma to do????  :) 

Here's the sketch: 



So here's the card I made.  It was fun getting out my Christmas things and playing with some of the terrific products I had won that I didn't get a chance to use before last Christmas.  The darling mittens are from the SSS Big Holiday Wishes set that was in the December 2013 Card Kit I won.  (THANKS, SSS!!!)  

The little Merry Christmas stamp was in a Serendipity grab bag I chose as part of a prize .  (THANKS, Serendipity!!!)  By the way, these grab bags are an amazing deal....10 adorable cling foam-mounted stamps for a buck!!  Great add-on when you are ordering other terrific products from them!!!

You can see the silver glitter glue I used around the three DCWV patterned paper vertical panels.  Again, don't use this stuff when you are in a hurry!  Ha.  For the white panels, I inked around the edges and heat-embossed in silver.  Love this look!!!  The image and sentiment were stamped and heat-embossed in red.  The green metallic twine was a thrift store find.....40 cents for a generous skein!  :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog!!  Love it when you visit and leave a comment.  Also, love all my followers!!!  Thanks so much for your support!!!
