The beginnig of the month means a new challenge on the 12 Months of Christmas Challenge Link Up and this month our optional theme is 'out with the old, in with the new'. You can find all the details here on the challenge blog.
Our sponsor this month is:
In order to have a chance to win t he prize from our wonderful guest sponsor this month, be sure to include on your card, something old and something new that you have just received in the last month. So dip into your stash AND grab one of your shiny new items or toys, or it could even be a new technique you're trying for the first time, and get busy creating. Please be sure to let us know what your new and old item(s) are. If you do follow the optional theme, be sure to add FT after your name so that we include you in the draw for the prize.
Remember, you don't need to follow the theme to link up your cards and earn a free paper each month, and have your name thrown into the year end draw for some extra digital goodies. You only need to follow the theme if you want a chance to win this month's sponsored prize of a $15.00 gift certificate from Ike's Art.For my card I've used a digi stamp from Ike's Art called 'Robins' - you can find it here on Ike's website.
My 'something new' things are the gold nail head gems and also the technique of using Glamour Dust with a glue pen. I've used it on the snow although it doesn't show up too well in the photo! My 'something old' is from a previous set of digi papers designed by Lisa for our monthly challenges.
