Christmas Tree Cuppie!

yep, another day with 2 posts! now, don't get too used to this, but I am trying to get caught up on all of my DT stuff while I've been sick.....not sure what tomorrow will bring, so enjoy the cards while I can make them! grins!
I'm also working on some super secret behind the scenes super-hero stuff that I can't show you until next month, but I hope it will knock those socks right off of ya!

as promised, I'll also have some blog candy starting next week to say thank you for being so patient with me!  pop back by for that if you would like a chance to win. as always, you do not have to be a follower to play along.

ABC Christmas Challenges has a new challenge this week of 'O Christmas Tree'. Our sponsor is the always cute Bugaboo Stamps. please stop by the ABC Christmas challenge blog to see the amazing projects created by my teamies. they always come up with so many gorgeous and inspiring things!

my card uses the cutie image 'Christmas Cupcake - lights' by Bugaboo.  papers are Basic Grey Aspen Frost as is the fun flair badge. roses are Prima, fun paper clip is K & Co., and the charm comes from Stamp & Create. on the cupcake, the stars were painted with shimmerz and the lights were coated with crystal effects. some itty bitter rhinestones were also added. the card base was sprayed with Studio Calico Mr. Huey's mist. gosh, I so love that stuff for holiday/winter cards! oh yes, the sentiment is a stamp from PTI that seemed so perfect for this image. :)

thanks as always for stopping by! I hope you have a most wonderful weekend! :)
