Christmas Wish

This week Simon Says Stamp and Show & the Simon Says Stamp Challenge are joining together for a SUPER hop to celebrate the approaching fall and winter holidays. To help celebrate they will be giving a $100 SHOPPING SPREE to the winner of the hop! How fabulous is that? The theme is holiday fun, so you can make a Halloween, Thanksgiving, or Christmas project.

This afternoon my new Lacey Spellbinders die set came in and I did both the JustRite blog and Simon Says hops and was so inspired that I sat down and made my card. Both the sentiment and snowflake are from JustRite's Whimsical Christmas set, this set is so sweet. I cut the snowflakes out and on each dot on the snowflake, I added a dot of glitter. I also added glitter around the sentiment border and mat under the sentiment. And each embossed dot has more glitter. It's quite sparkly in real life. I finished it off with some stitching and popped up my snowflakes, sentiment and squares.

I don't know who this is going to yet, but I'm going to need to make an envelope and my envelope skills are not that good, lol. I have a Scor-buddy on the way, but I know it's too small for envies. If anyone has any envelope making tips, let me know. :)

Hubby and I are both sparkling tonight, lol. He was nowhere near my project, but he is covered in glitter too. :) Thanks so much for stopping in have a great night.

Entering in Simon Says Stamps and JustRite's Challenge # 34.


  1. So sparkly & so very pretty, Tanya!!! Also very clever to make your Lacey Squares work for a long card.
    Hope your hubby isn't feeling itchy, which is what my hubby usually says glitter does to him -- LOL!!!

  2. this is a beautiful christmas card tanya-love long cards and all the sparkle on this one-no tips on envie making-but when I make a long card I use a #10 bus envie. I have about 500 translucent ones-if you would like some drop me an email
