OCCC, IC157 LSC197 - I'm back!!!

Hey everyone!!! Sorry I've been missing for a couple of days...but life and the Holiday's got in the way!!!

My girls also signed up for Basketball Tuesday's and Thursday's!!! I'm so glad they finally decided on doing something...KWIM???

Anyway - I'm back in the stampin' business and as you can tell I went straight to do some fun Challenges!!!

The fabulous Julee Tilmann came up with this awesome Sketch for today's OCC Challenge!!! Click here to check it out!!!

I used one of the new Stamp Set's from Treehouse called *Make a List*. In this case I made my *Wish List* for Santa!!!

I used the *Ski Solpe* DP from SU for the BG. As you can tell I trimmed the Wish List down a bit to make it fit for the Sketch....I inked the List in Basic Black and layered it onto Old Olive, Whisper White, Real Red CS. I added some DS Blue Bayou Ribbon on the side. The pretty snowflake is from our LSS (Anna Griffin). I finished it all off with some Silver Brads (Michael's).

Like I said it's been a really busy week - I only had a chance to stamp twice this week....so as soon as I saw the IC157 posted last night I ran straight into my craft room and started stampin'!!!!

I chose this gorgeous pendant as my inspiration piece!!!

The main image is called *Agapanthus Cluster* from *Stampendous*. I bought it at our Local Hobby Lobby!!! Here is another card I made recently with the same Stamp.

I love black and white cards - they are so dramatic!!! I started out inking the Cluster with Versamark and embossed it with White EP. Next I added some Silver Brads on the right hand side and raised the whole panel up with Stampin Dimensionals!!!

The beautiful sentiment is from the gorgeous *Here for You* Set from *There She Goes* and it was inked in Basic Black. To finish it all off I added the Black Satin Ribbon (Michael's).


This is my card I made for the LSC197.

Pretty simple - I used Watercolor CS for my base to match the beautiful Anna Griffin DP!!!

I simply love the embossed snowflakes on the DP!!! I added a Silver/Grey Ribbon and stamped the sentiment from the *Fundamental Phrases*!!! That's all....

Have a wonderful weekend!!! See ya soon!!! ~TFL~
