Naughty or Nice???.........

This week over at the Sugar Bowl we have a gorgeous by Tiets! I just love her sketches and when I am in a slump I always go to her blog for inspiration!!
For the option we were to create a card for Christmas! And this time I didn't forget! LOL

The prize for this week is the 4 new country cousins christmas stamps and four stamps of the winners choosing! So that's 8 stamps in total! Whohoo I wish I could enter ~ those new images are just darling!


I just had to use this image! I have been wanting him since last year and he was always out of stock so I managed to get him a couple weeks ago ~ just in time for this challenge! Again I have distressed all edges and added crackle paint to some of the edges! I can't ever just let them edges go!! LOL

Anyways just remember you have to use a Sugar Nellie image and you have two weeks to do the challenge! Don't forget to stop and see the rest of the creations by the DT ~ they are always gorgeous and inspiring!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I really appreciate it and I hope you all have a fabulous day!! We have had alot of wind the past few days so you know what I will be doing!! LOL Yep raking it is!! haha


Paper: MME
Inks: Distress inks
Accessories: twine and button ~ stash, star punch ~ EK Success, distress crackle paint ~ Tim Holtz
