ODBDSLC80 Rejoice and C4C Winter Wishes.....

Hello everyone!

May I just say I'm happy its weekend :) ...it's been a long and busy week !!! I'm looking forward to
sleeping in! How about you??

Today I have two cards for you....when I started writing my blog post I realized I didn't make the right card for the C4C Challenge...as you know, I like to combine my C4C & ODBD challenges, but this time I couldn't. Anyway, I frantically made a second one :) !!!

Let me start out with my first card....it is for this weeks ODBD Shining Light Challenge ~ ODBDSLC80. It's all about making *HOLIDAY CARDS*, but it comes with a twist...you MUST use a ODBD Stamp Set.

Here is my idea......



I decided to use the beautiful ODBD Set *His Gift*. It's so pretty with the Gold heat embossing. The DP in the background is from the BoBunny Father Christmas Collection. I matched it up with some Gold Ribbon, ButtonGold String, Gold Pearls and a punched out border on the side. The sentiment is from another beautiful ODBD Christmas *Worship the Lord*.

Please make sure to check out the rest of the team ~ SabrinaFrancie, LoriPat, Chris and our October Guest Designer Sue Worthington.

*********************************************************************************

My second card is for the C4C109 Challenge. The challenge this week is to create something for the upcoming holidays and you need to incorporate some *Heat Embossing*. Here is where I went wrong...LOL...we have a sponsor.....this month's we are featuring Outlines Rubber Stamps. Please make sure to swing by the C4C blog to see all the details.



You all know I'm a sucker for *snowmen* ...LOL....and I chose to show off the fun Jolly, Happy Soul. The image was inked in Versamark and *heat embossed* with Black EP. Next, I started coloring the snowman with Copic Markers and bedazzled it with Dazzling Diamond Glitter. I finished the card off with the Striped Ribbon, Button, Silver String and Silver Pearls.

Hope you will have a chance to play along....have a wonderful weekend!

Such an elegant ODBD card with all that yummy embossing - your mating of the green and gold is so perfectly accented with that gorgeous bow with the twine and ribbon combined with the button (I am taking notes!)

When you said the sentiment came from the Worship the Lord set, I had to smile when I looked at your second card - that snowman looks like that is what he is doing!! There's that bow with the button thing again - LOVE it! TFS
