It's beginning to look ....

Like Christmas ;o). Those that know me know the I LOVE Christmas. If my hubby would let me I would have my Christmas tree up all year round. So it's no surprise that at random times of the year I'll pull out Christmas products and make a project with them. For my first Sunday Challenge over at Paper Craft Weekend Challenge I challenged everyone to use glitter. To read more about the challenge heard on over to Paper Craft Weekend Challenge. Here is the project I made for the glitter challenge

This was the first time I used promarkers with stamps and boy am I in love. If you haven't tried promarkers yet and are looking for a good quality marker to color your stamps with I highly recommend them. They are a cheaper alternative to copics. I purchased mine from Carpe Diem and although their shipping is slightly high they are still cheaper then other places. I have also heard that some Joann's are carrying a 12 pack in their "fine arts" section but I haven't been lucky enough to find them their.

Be sure to join us at Paper Craft Weekend Challenge and Challenge yourself with us.

Thanks for stopping by.

Challenge Yourself!!!!!!

Allison and I are thrilled to announce our new challenge blog – Paper Craft Weekend Challenge! You can expect a challenge with a project to inspire you every Friday and Sunday. The only rule we expect you to stick to is having fun! We are not going to limit ourselves to one type of machine or project – so get your materials and get ready to use your stuff (instead of just collecting it – not that we aren’t guilty of that too). There will be some tutorials along the way – and it wouldn’t be any fun if we didn’t have friends occasionally stopping by – so please come join us and get ready to get your craft on!
