Whiff of Joy Challenge #58 --- Sparkle!

Whiff of Joy has put out so many fantastic winter and holiday images this year! I've been coloring like crazy and a few nights ago just got carried away with the red Copics! So here are a couple of the new WOJ images carrying out the red theme.

The challenge this week was to add sparkle. That's easy this time of year! The first image is "Freezing Willow" and she does make me shiver just looking at her! I used shimmery white card stock for the card and the Nestabilities oval die cut. For more sparkle I attached a piece of my favorite holiday ribbon. The snowflake corners are done with the Martha Stewart punch.

The second card features "WOJ Santa with Gifts". He is such a jolly old soul! The dp is from a collection I bought last year and I added red rhinestones to sparkle it up a bit. The red ribbon has sparkle, too.
Like so many of us, I love the easel cards. The "door stop" on this one is a 3D sticker from K&Company that features a winter sleigh (kinda hard to see in the pic).

The Christmas countdown seems to be moving in light speed!! I am trying to cram in house cleaning and card making during the next week because my son will be here on the 17th. That's when my Christmas starts!! Thank Heaven for my mom (who lives two doors down) because she is the cook of the family. So after spending the day at the Silver Dollar City amusement park and going to Christmas shows, and shopping, we can come home to her good cooking! In the mean time, I have more cards to make, so I'd best be gettin' to it!

Thanks for stopping by! I've been out blog hopping and marvel at the incredible creativity everywhere I look! What a sensational community is this blogosphere!

Just gorgeous, is there no end to your creativity my friend?
I've been concentrating on making personal cards and DT cards for now (I've lost my mojo a bit at the moment) so I'm taking a little break from all the challenges in the hope that it will return soon. Wish me luck Barb LOL!
