Hope you are having fun already...checking out everything that the design team has prepared for you? Well of course you are! You should have come here from  Guylou:  if you did great! If you didn't you have to go back! You don't want to miss anything! Here is a list of where you should have been and where you are going:   (if you haven't seen them all, start at the beginning and don't skip! You know who's watching!)

4.   Dale
5.   Gina
6.   Guylou
7.   Kim  (You are here)
8.   Tracy

Now where was I....Oh yeah....the good stuff! Check out these wonderful Christmas digis. You just have to get one or two...oh heck, who am I kidding, you need them all! They are available at Guylous Inimitability Online Store!

Aren't they adorable! I just think that they will all look great on any Christmas card!

Now what is a blog hop without a prize????
One lucky person's name will be drawn from each blog comments and will receive one digistamp of their choice from Guylou's new releases. AND  a grand prize winner will be selected from Guylou's Inimitability Blog to win ALL 5 new releases. But you must post a comment on each blog in the BLOG HOP to qualify for the grand prize!

I am sure you have seen some amazing things so far. The ladies on this design team are wonderful. So now I will add my creations to hopefully give you some inspiration for your Christmas cards!

I used "Louise with Wreath" on my first one.   

I went away from the traditional colors. What girl doesn't like pink? I kept the cards simple and just added the pink and silver bells with an acrylic tag! Hope you like it. Inside I left it blank for now until I decide who I am sending it to!

This next card, I went with the reds and greens of Christmas! I used "Louise with Candycane" isn't she just "SWEET"?

And here is the inside. I fell in love with the candy cane paper...thought it really worked with her!

Well I hope you enjoyed your time here, but you'd better be hopping along! Your next stop is Tracy. Tell her I said hello! Don't forget to leave each of us some love! Cause you could be the winner!

The hop will continue until tomorrow the 28th at 9:00 P.M. EST. Take care! HUGS!

Looks like the blog hop is happening a little earlier than we thought! I will get the details and let you know!!!


Now don't I feel stupid. I was going to add my cards to the previous post and didn't. Things have been crazy here. Jenna was in the ER on Thursday and I have been spending time with my sister. We don't see each other as often as we want to! Anyway here are the cards I made for the ELEGANT CHALLENGE!

In this one I used Gertrude. I kept her dress white, just outlining with C0 and I colored her gloves, sash, and bows on the actual computer before printing. I know I cheated a little, but I like that look with this card!

I continued the same background inside and finished the sentiment.

I wanted a little more color to this I changed the dress to black and added the pink...we ladies all love a dash of pink in our wardrobe! Had to throw my Minnie Mouse in the mix cause we all know how elegant and glamorous that Minnie can be! Hope that gives a little inspiration to you! Can't wait to see what comes up!

Elegant Challenge at Guylou's Inimitability!

Told you there was a kick butt challenge coming is everything you need to know. I really hope we get some people playing along! It also looks like we might be in for some fun on December 4th and 5th with a blog hop to celebrate the new Christmas digis that will be released! More info to come! On to the challenge:
According to the free dictionary. com, the word elegance is defined as:
n pl -gances-gancies
1. dignified grace in appearance, movement, or behaviour
2. good taste in design, style, arrangement, etc.
3. something elegant; a refinement

Oh the days when elegance was a way of life; when men dressed to the nines and the women wore long beautiful gowns and gloves. I love going to Christmas parties because I get to dress in a beautiful dress, wear fancy shoes and have my hair all done up.

So this challenge will be about elegance. We challenge you to make a card or a project with an elegant theme, whatever way you interpret this word.

Feel free to enter any newly made elegant cards or projects, but in order to qualify to win, you will need to use a Guylou's Inimitability digistamp. If you don’t have any GI images, you can visit Guylou's Inimitability Store or you can have a look for a freebie in her group on Crafters Digital Art Center!

The winner will be awarded a digistamp of her choice from Guylou's Inimitability Store, but that's not all... the winner will also be invited to be a Guest Designer on an upcoming challenge and will get another GI digistamp to make a card or project along with the DT.

Ready....Set...Craft! Can't wait to see all of the fabulous cards that are made!

Happy Veteran's Day!

Time moves so fast want to yell want to take the time to smell the coffee. Well I am a firm believer in doing just that. Life will get away from you if you don't.

Today is a day for taking the time to remember and to stop and say thank you to the men and women who fight and have fought for this country and so many other countries. I am not fond of war but I believe we as a country had to stand up and say we are not going to let anyone get away with blowing up our people and parts of our lives. I was a lucky person on 9-11 because I didn't have anyone close to me hurt or killed, but in the years since I have found many of my friends and aquaintences who did. I had a customer that fought in Vietnam and I sat down with him and asked him what it was like to come back here back then as opposed to the military coming back now. He told me that he was spit at and yelled at...somethings I cannot repeat and it seems to be happening now as well just not as bad. As we ended our coversation I thanked him, I told him that I appreciate the things he gave up to protect me and mine. And then I shook his hand. There were tears in his eyes when he told me thanks for saying what I did. I feel like I am going around in circles but the jist of what I am saying is...everyday we should remember our military but today especially we should thank them. No matter what country we are from the military is a specail group of people who do so much to keep there country safe! HUGS AND LOVE!

If anyone has found a little mojo running around; I swear it's mine! I have been working here and there in my craft room but everything is slow going. I even have been putting together cards without an image or idea of type of card (i.e. b-day, anniversary,thinking of you etc...) but I have hit a big wall. I have tried to crawl over it and tried to dig under it but nada, nothing, zippo I'm stuck. I think it's this rut I'm in. Anyway I really hope that you have your mojo and you have a happy day. I am going to go find my longer shovel and see if I can dig out of this rut. HMMMM I wonder if superman is around he can dig a lot faster than me! And if you see tha mojo tell her she's in trouble and better get home soon! Love to you all!
