Let It Snow–New ABC DT Challenge!!

I’m dropping by today to share the project that I created for the December ABC Toys & Crafts challenge, which is to create a project USING NON-TRADITIONAL CHRISTMAS COLORS – so no red and green allowed!
Let It Snow

STAMPS:  Let It Snow (My Cute Stamps) (Currently Out of Stock)
INK: 
Grape Jelly,
 Summer Sky and Summer Sky(Memento)
PAPER:  Savanna Limba CS (LCI)
ACCESSORIES: 
Citron Green Gemstones  (Hero Arts), Light Blue Gemstones  (Hero Arts), Purple Gemstones  (Hero Arts)
This card came together super fast and easily, and I’ve decided that it may be in the running for this year’s Loncon family holiday cards.  That is if I actually send some out this year . . . that’s still undecided.  LOL  I stamped several of the snowflake images using three different colors of ink onto the wood grain embossed cardstock (super yummy stuff!)  All of the images are from the Let It Snow set from My Cute Stamps.  I then added gemstones to jazz things up a bit.  Easy peasy!!

I hope my card inspires you, because we’d be thrilled to pieces if you’d play along with us!!  Here are a few of the rules for our challenge:
  • The challenge, rules and the InLinkz widget where you can upload your projects is located at the new ABC TOYS & CRAFTS CHALLENGE BLOG.
  • This month’s challenge will last for two weeks and you can enter as many times as you like.  However, your project must follow all the rules and include NON-TRADITIONAL CHRISTMAS COLORS in order to qualify for the prize.  This challenge ends on December 18th at midnight (CST).  The winner will be announced on Thursday, December 23rd.
  • The challenge will now be JUDGED rather than using the Random.org selection process.  We want to see your best work!!
  • The winner will receive a $20 store credit to ABC Toys & Crafts.
  • The winner will earn an additional $5 store credit (that’s a total of $25 store credit!) if they’re DISPLAYING our CHALLENGE BLINKIE (you’ll find the HTML code for our Blinkie on our side bar).

Are you ready to play along with us?!!  Well then click on the blinkie below, and that will take you directly to the new ABC Toys & Crafts Challenge Blog, where you’ll find the current challenge, the InLinkz widget for uploading your projects, as well as more sweet inspiration from the rest of the ABC Toys & Crafts design team.

That’s it for me today, peeps!  Believe it or not, I’ll be back tomorrow with another sample for the challenge.  Hope you’ll stop by to see me then!  Have a great day!
