Birthday Blog Candy Winners...and Playing with My New Christmas Kit!

Hello friends!!  It's the middle of the week and it's also time for me to announce the winners of my birthday blog candy!  But first, I have a little card to share with you!
OK...you can scroll down to see who won in case you can't stand it! LOL!

It always feels like Christmas when I receive a new Simon Says Stamp card kit!
So when I saw this one was Christmas theme, I was happy because I knew it would get me motivated to start making up some Christmas cards!  I so need to kick it in!

Here's my card...
I think I have used every element from the kit on my card here!  I love everything in it...I usually do, but I was excited to see the Lawn Fawn papers, the fun snowflake sequins and the liquid glue from Ranger that I've been wanting to try and it really DOES hold those sequins on nicely!  I like that it doesn't goosh out and look terrible after it dries!
(I know, weird little things like this make me happy!  LOL!)

I stamped the trees, the snowflake dots above that and the greeting along the side from the stamp set in the kit.  I used the Lawn Fawn papers for my background card base and for the red and white strip along the side of the tree panel.  I also punched a circle of the same tree papers that I attached the gold bow sticker on from the kit.  The sequins are also from the kit as well as the white card base and red card stock on my tree panel.

I love how this turned out!  And there's still PLENTY left in the kit to make tons more cards...so I just created more work for myself, right?!  LOL!

Here are some challenges that I'd like to enter this for:
The Paper Players

Allsorts - Christmas
The Pink Elephant (TPE274) - anything goes
