TAMARA'S SKETCH CHALLENGE 71 AND SOME NICE AWARDS

Hi all! Well, another week is flyin' by - I am starting to get nervous about being ready for the holidays! I have not even put in a dent in my holiday shopping and usually by now I have quite a bit done. I think Black Friday will be a big day for me this year!!! I hope there are some good deals! So, today is Tamara's Sketch Challenge and I LOVE today's sketch!! I decided to make another Christmas card with this uber cute set called Holiday Lineup (thanks Kimberly, I LOVE it!!!) because the images make me happy, and I need that right now!!! I kept this card pretty simple, but I did add some Iridescent Ice to my snowmen and if you click on the pic, you can see it and how cute they look all gussied up!!! And, of course my felt flurries - I can NEVER run out of these!! So, make sure you head over to Tamara's and check out what the rest of the Rockin' DT gals did this week - they are all listed in my sidebar so make sure you go over and give them some love!! And, why not try the sketch? If you do, make sure to upload it to the site, so we can all check it out!!! Here is the recipe!
Card Recipe:
Paper - Not Quite Navy, Baha Breeze, Whisper White card stock, Baha Breeze Patterns Designer Series Paper
Inks - Not Quite Navy Stampin' Pad, Black Stazon, Not Quite Navy, Sage Shadow, Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write Markers
Stamps - Holiday Lineup
Accessories - Wide Oval Punch, Baha Breeze Striped Ribbon, Fire Rhinestone, Felt Flurries
And, lookee what I got?!! These gals thought enough of me to nominate me for some awards - I am very touched that you all are so thoughtful, thanks very much!
First up is the Kreativ Blogger Award that I received from both ddnjoys2stamp aka Diane and My Happy Place aka Kathleen!! Both of these ladies are so very talented and sweeties to boot!! I actually was lucky enough to meet Kathleen in person at Convention although I did not get to spend too much time with her!!! And Diane, well the woman is just wonderful!! So, thanks to both of you! This next award I received from a new blogging friend Bunny-Zoe's Blog aka Nikki, who is extremely talented and so I was very honored that she thought of me for this!!! Thanks Nikki, you ROCK and so does your blog!!!! And, now I am supposed to nominate five people for each award, and I am always VERY good about doing this, but today I am awarding them to everyone in my blog roll because I appreciate each and every one of you!!! Smooches!!!!

This card is so very cute! I only got a couple of gifts so far. I'm usually a little bit more with it too. I think going on vacation completely threw me off. Oh well, I'll take vacation over being organized for Christmas anytime!
