DeeDee's Here Comes Christmas

Good Morning...Happy Saturday, and on the count-down to the big Day. We are scurrying around with last minute tasks, so that we can be ready to leave in the early am tomorrow. Before we get to the card, let me give a big Welcome Shoutout to a new follower: Gerrina of Gerrina's Creatieve Wereld. Thanks so much for becoming a a new friend, and I hope all who visit here, might take a few moments to pop over to say Hey to Gerrina and enjoy her blog.

Finished up a few cards last night, so doing some scheduled posts along with today's share:

DeeDee's Digi Here Comes Christmas. DeeDee's Digis will be closing as of December 31, so you might want to hasten over there and pick up some really adorable digis at fantastic prices. (75% off!).
If you're like me, you're always sorry when you miss a good buy.

This cute digi was precolored, but I used some of the Pentel Slicci metallic pens on the horse reins & harness, the trim on the penguin's hat and basically that's all that was done to this cutie. Die cut with a S/B die (forget which one but if you want to know, I can supply the name). Added some Stickles Star Dust around on the snow, then sprinkled that while wet, with Sparkle n Sprinkle's Twinkling Cloud which is my favorite 'snow'.

die cut 2 sizes of Snowflakes from American Craft glitter paper. Forgot to use the Sizzix Precision Plate for cutting intricate dies. This paper had a sort of 'plastic backing' on it, so even though many passes were done with the Big Shot, the scissors still had to be used on some of the bits.

MFT curved die for the white bottom area, and the snowflake paper at the top is from a $2.50 6x6 pack that I got recently. Oh yeah, I needed more paper.

Do be sure to check out DeeDee's Digis to see the Anything But Christmas Challenge that is currently going on. And don't forget to check on this wonderful sale.
Thanks for joining me today. Big Merry Christmas Hugs.


  1. Hi Mary, Love the card.

    Safe journey and have a lovely time. Sue

  2. A super seasonal card Mary. You mention followers, have you lost any today ?
    Most of myself and teamies and the challenge blogs have lost a good few ranging from 6 to 60, seems Blogger is doing some housekeeping of inactive blogs, been a bit like watching a sinking ship today.

    In case I'm not round again beforehand wishing you and yours a very Happy Christmas.
