Contest and CANDY and some cards!

A huge contest has been announced by Purple Cows! Details HERE

There's also an in-house competition amongst the DT, basically, whomever gets the most people to follow their blog/fanpage on Facebook, gets a big cash prize. So, I'm just doing my little part here by asking you for a teeny bit of help. If I win any money, it's all going to my girls' college fund!

1) Visit the blog http://sadiepurplecow.blogspot.com/
2) Become a follower
3) Leave a comment on any post "Kryssi sent me!"


Become a fan on Facebook and let them know Kryssi sent you!

That's it, and then come back here letting me know you've done so. 

Here's the candy part!

Many of you know that I have been cleaning and downsizing my craft area to make room for baby. In return for your help, regardless of whether I win anything or not, I will put together a big package of goodies and ship it to one random winner. I'm not sure what the box will consist of yet, but I'm thinking stamps, paper, ribbon and whatever I can fit in there!

And finally, to end this post.. I leave you with some quick and easy holiday cards. I pounded out about 10 of these in an hour!!

Here's a closer look

I first stamped the dots background in Versamark. Then stamped the cute reindeer image over it. The reindeer was then stamped on a cream cardstock. Only the head and body were paper pierced. I did some light coloring with my prismas to give the reindeer some dimension. Finally, Stickles were applied to random dots to give it a snowy, starry effect. That's it! So easy! You just need to give the Stickles time to dry. :)

Okay, back to some serious bed rest... my first daughter Audrey was born at 35.6 weeks THREE YEARS AGO and I am 35.6 weeks pregnant today as well! (LOL Vanessa!)
