Welcome to The North Pole Blog Hop!

Waiting there for you and me;
Where they make the toys so busily!

In his wonderful reindeer sleigh,
Santa would whisk us all away;
Flying merrily,
Non-stop to the NORTH POLE!!

Today I'm sharing with you a card I made this year for a Christmas in July challenge.  I LOVE the stamp, which I got from Deep Red Stamps.  The edges of the scallop hang over the card just a little bit, but I still really love the look of this card.


Next head on over to Santa's Workshop and visit with Holli.  Here's our lineup in case you get lost along the way:

Stinkin' Inkers December Challenge

The theme for the December Challenge at Stinkin' Inkers is Christmas Joys.  We want you to create a project showcasing anything that celebrates the holiday.  I thought I would share with you one of the non-traditional Christmas cards I made this year.


I really LOVE the way this turned out and how well the colors go together!  They're not typical colors for a Christmas card, and I think that's what makes it so much fun.

You have until 7 pm on Friday, December 29 to get your Christmas Joys project linked up on the Stinkin' Inkers blog.  Head over to the blog, too, to see some inspiration from the Design Team.  We can't wait to see your projects!  Happy scrapping, everyone!

I have two separate Thank You cards to show you today.  I made these as part of a card collection which was donated to our local CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) Silent Auction this year, which benefited our program allowing us to continue to advocate in the court system for abused and neglected children in foster care. 



The lady who purchased the card collection was absolutely in LOVE with the cards!  I was so happy!!!

Now please hop on over to Alicia next!  Here's our lineup in case you get lost along the way:

The theme for the November Challenge at Stinkin' Inkers is Thankful.  We want you to create a project showcasing what you are thankful for; for example, you could use family, friends, delicious meals, home, health, etc. as your focus.  I decided to make a simply Happy Thanksgiving card, as I love sending out a few cards around Thanksgiving to put a smile on some faces. 


You have until 7 pm on Friday, November 24 to get your Thankful project linked up on the Stinkin' Inkers blog.  Head over to the blog, too, to see some inspiration from the Design Team.  We can't wait to see your projects!  Happy scrapping, everyone!

I had this fun little witch digital stamp from my time as a Design Team member at Pattie G's a few years ago, and I thought she would be perfect for this project.





All of the patterned papers are from Doodlebug Design's Boos & Brews collection.  I used some Stickels to enhance the stars and smoke a little, and I found the cute little pom-poms at my local Dollar Tree.  Both sentiments and the image on the inside are from Bug Bites.
