Bring back some oldies...

Today, I am waiting for Mr. Brown to deliver all my goodies from the new Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini!! I can't wait! I am a little excited because it is a pretty big order with class supplies for the holiday season! I love creating for the holidays!

My friend Andrea and I decided to enter into the Moxie Fab World contests that started last week. I brought out one of my old favorite dry embossing templates and some rubons I've had since the Recollection days... Here is what I made:


Paper: Baja Breeze and Very Vanilla cardstock by Stampin' Up!; patterned paper by Kaiser Crafts, October Afternoon, and Lasting Impressions
Accessories: ribbon and embossing template by Lasting Impressions; Rubons by Daisy Ds for Recollections; 1/2" circle punch, paper piercer, and Fire Circle Rhinestone brads by Stampin' Up!; scallop edge punch by Fiskars; White Signo gel pen

I think I'll enter it into the Shabby Chic category... I did distress the edges of my focal point! Hee! Making these Christmas cards really got me in the mood for the holiday!

I also wanted to let you all know of something new and exciting on the internet! My friend Ashley had a great idea- she created a new online magazine called Embellish that will feature challenges and peoples take on them. Her first issue is coming out in December and she is currently looking for submissions for the first color challenge! Check it out! She's going to choose her favorite and publish it on the cover of the magazine! Guess what else they win... a new Apple Ipod Touch!! Holy Cow, right? I can't wait to see the first issue!!

Thanks for peeking and if you get a chance, check out the great contests at Moxie Fab World! You still have a couple of days to work on it!
