Arty Girlz Challenge #66, a RAK, Elfster is revealed!!!

A few days ago, I found Arty Girlz Challenge Blog! You'd think that I've been living under a rock or something, lol!
Arty Girlz Challenge #66 is to create something that you can display in your home, for example, an altered frame, picture, Christmas ornament, or anything you like... the theme is open to interpretation.
I started out with 3 of these plain 4inch wreaths from Making Memories:

... and they became 3 ornaments :)
I'm hoping to be able to keep one of them, lol! ;)
BTW!!! I finally got to use my Making Memories Slice!!! That is how I got these perfect 4inch circles to fit in the wreaths!
My Christmas ornament details:
  • 3 Making Memories wreaths, chipboard and flowers;
  • SU! ribbon and cardstock;
  • BasicGrey Wassail DP;
  • Fiskars Lace punch.

Now it's time to share some more RAKs!!!

I received this lil' package yesterday... I couldn't believe my eyes when I opened this envelope from Tammi at Tropical Dreams! My jaw dropped!


First... lookie at the beautiful snowman card she made! He's sooo adorable! I guess y'all know how much I {heart} snowmans!!! :)... and look at all the stamped images... Elzybells 'Mother & Child' stamp and the lil' boy from Hanglar are my fave, but I'm also loving all of these cute snowmans!!! Tammi is such a sweet person, I love going to her blog! Her creations are adorable :) I'm always drooling over her images - her coloring is impeccable! These images are so cute - I'm afraid to color them! I don't want to mess them up! I cannot believe she sent me all of these to play with!!!

And lookie how good a girl I was/am!!! ;)

My Elfster Secret Santa was... Jeanie from Another Day in Paradise!

She was sooo very good to me :)I will be inking that stamp up tonight!!! I have some last minute Christmas cards to make... and of course, I'll be adding some Liquid Pearls to everything now!


... and a big thank you to Tonya at Stamp Happens!!!... for getting the Elfster exchange all organized for us! Such a sweet thing to do :)

Happy Holidays!!!
