Ice Ice Baby

Vanilla Ice I'm not but Ice is what we want!  That's the theme or our new challenge at ABC Christmas Challenge!  Show us your ice rinks, ice cubes, ice skating ... you get the idea.

Our fab sponsor for this challenge is Meljen's Designs and the will provide the winner with 4 digis of their choice!!

I wanted to do something outside the ice box (I crack myself up) and decided on this image by Meljen's Shaken Not Stirred.  I colored the image with my Copic markers, added glossy accents to the tasty drink and crackle accents to the ICE cube.  I decided gems were in order and to finish it off, stickles for some glam and tinsel ribbon w/bells.

The Cheers and inside sentiments are from the Happy Hour set by Stampin' Up!  Now it's your turn to start ice-ing up!

Thumbs up

It's challenge time at Digi Haven and along with a new challenge comes a new theme ... Black, White and 1 other color is the name of the game!

Our fab sponsor for this challenge is Kenny K and the winner will receive 3 digi's of their choice!

Instead of a card I decided to make a gift tag with Thumbs Up Kid by Kenny K.  As you can see, my one color is blue, can't go wrong with boys and blue.  I added some glossy accents here and there, added some bakers twine and a digi ticket I picked up along the way.

Remember to check out the fab creations from our design team then start linking up for a chance to win!

Home for Christmas

It's challenge time at ABC Christmas Challenge and our theme is "H for Home" .. home decorations, home for the holidays, decorated homes ... show us your interpretation!

Our sponsor for this challenge is Stamp and Create and lovely Lacey has donated a $20 gift certificate to be spent at her store!

I've had this image, Hearts Truck, by Scribbles Designs for some time and for some reason have never played with it.  When our theme came up I knew I was going to finally use it!  The sentiment is also by Scribbles Designs.

I used my copic markers and added some glossy accents to various parts of the image.  I punched the sentiment out with my tag punch, added some jute and a flag to finish it off.  The paper is Christmas Wooden Nickels by Echo Park.

G is for Glitter at ABC Christmas Challenge!

What girl doesn't like to play with glitter?!  Well, this challenge at ABC Christmas Challenge gives you the opportunity to get glitterty...get out your embossing powder, stickles, glitter and start creating.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Kenny K and the winner will receive 3 digis of their choice!

I had fun with Drama Queen by Kenny K and to me, it screams glitter!  I colored her up with my copic markers then added blue glitter to her pants and ping glitter to her top.  I added lace stickles to the trim of her jacket and didn't let it dry before I added pink glitter to her top so the lace stickles also have pink glitter, darn...

Now it's your turn to get down and messy!
