Shirley's 2 Girls Twisted Thursday #18 - LET IT SNOW!!

Are you ready for some more Christmas In July, Twisted Thursday style?!! Well, then you've come to the right place!!

For the this week's Twisted Thursday Christmas Challenge, those sweet and generous ladies at Shirley's 2 Girls are giving you a present . . . this FREE Christmas digi that they want you to use for this week's challenge. Is she not just the cutest? And those kind sisters have even included three sentiments for you to choose from!! I'm seriously so excited to see what you all come up with using this adorable image!!!

Here's the sketch that Joy Stagg has designed for you to use this week. Good one, huh?And here's the sample that I created in response to the sketch. I used Fa La La Angel (SG H4). The "twist" for this week is to USE SOMETHING CLEAR. I cut out a snowflake using my Spellbinder's snowflakes and some clear cardstock. I painted some Diamond Glaze on it, and then covered it with Dazzling Diamonds. I also kind of "creatively interpreted" this week's sketch, but I used all the elements, so I hope that my card counts. LOL!! If you look closely, the long panel on the left is a bookmark! I cut out a slot in the card base for the bookmark to slide into, and it clings to the card via some Basic Grey self-adhesive magnets. I also used some of Shirley's 2 Girls new Christmas digi paper - I just love the colors and patterns and think that this paper is perfect for this fun image. Don't you?!!

Here's the scoop for this week:

  1. Use the above fabulous sketch that Joy Stagg has designed for you;
  2. The "twist" this week is to USE SOMETHING CLEAR;
  3. You MUST use the FREE Shirley's 2 Girls digi provided to create your card (and while you're at it, why not try one of our new Christmas digi papers, too?)

Yep, it is supposed to be 116 degrees here on Saturday, so I can definitely see that snow just around the corner! To even THINK of Christmas at this time of year is a little disturbing, to say the least but I do love your darling bright and cheery (bah humbug!, lol). Love the idea of the bookmark, pure genious, I tell you!

Anxious for tomorrow ?...I'm so jealous! Have a great trip and win lots of money!
