WARM Christmas Wishes




I know some of you ladies are just simply freezing your buns off right now! Alot of snow, sleet, freezing rain, and just plain cold weather out there. This little Santa dude has no worries about the cold weather and snow though.....he's just as happy as a clam - sitting in Paradise and sipping his margarita. How many of you wish you were with him right now?

A new Stamps R Us Challenge begins today - and it's going to be a great one. First of all, the theme is Anything Goes! Yep, that's right - just whatever suits your fancy! Be SURE and submit your entry sometime within the next two weeks! The next super deal with this challenge is this - there will be TWO winners for a gift certificate - one from Stamp it Crazy and one from the store at Bonibleaux Designs! Plus the top three will be able to add a badge to their sidebar! See, I told you it is a great challenge.

This little Santa image I used is called Santi Beaches from Bonibleaux Designs! She has so many cute images to choose from. Also, she has a blog called Dude Time Doodles and there are some fantastic things going on there as well! There's a Sketch challenge happening now AND - get this - she has a FREE IMAGE you can use/submit your project/and, if selected, be the next GUEST DESIGNER (for January). How cool is that! Be sure and submit your entry for the Guest Designer spot - the DT are a bunch of fantastic, funny, ladies that you'll have so much fun with.

So.....be sure and check out Dude Time Doodles and Bonibleaux Designs - and, of course, the Stamps R Us Challenge and Stamp it Crazy.

Thanks for stopping by.................

Boy did this one give me a case of the giggles! What a cute card, I love everything about it, the cut out palm trees and Santa relaxing after the holidays! Love it. Stay warm, I guess you are right, Lucky is feeling dapper in his new sweater. Surprised he didn't rip it to shreds. Have a great day!

Seriously cute card Lynn... no, not seriously! It's a hoot. Love the image & those fabulous palm trees. I could use a little warmer weather & some green fronds gently waving in the breeze instead of the cold weather in southern Saskatchewan right now!
