It's All About the Holidays at Addicted to Stamps!

Hello friends!
Hope you are all having a wonderful week so far!
Although it's been a bit busy around my house "behind" the scenes, I'm still thinking of crafting and getting my handmade creating going for the up-coming Holidays!

That's exactly what we are looking for over at
This week we would like to see your Holiday themed creations!
Weather it be for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas or even a vacation Holiday, be sure to enter it with our challenge this week!  We can't wait to see what you all come up with! :)

We have a couple of fabulous sponsors this week as well:

One lucky winner will receive 5 digital images!

Another lucky winner will receive a $15.00 coupon to spend at their store!

Be sure you play along for your chance to win a prize or a chance at being chosen for a spot in our "Top Addicts" designs!

Both of these sponsors were kind enough to provide the DT with some images to work with and here's what I've come up with using one of the sponsor's images:
I've used this peaceful and beautiful image from DeeDee's Digis called Winter Woods on my card.  I printed it out, colored it with my Copic markers and then I cut it out in a square that fits around the image only.
I have also added some glitter to the snow on the image and then I layered it onto a piece of glitter card stock and then layered that onto a piece of gold foil card stock that was die cut with a stitched square frame die cut.  Of course it really looks sparkly and shimmery IRL, but the photo does not capture how I see in person!
I layered the image onto a piece of 5" square white card base with a little extra spot towards the bottom of the card so that I could stamp the sentiment.  Although the set does come with several nice sentiments, I wanted a sentiment that went straight across and was thin enough to fit on my design, so I chose to use a set from Whimsy Stamps called Scandi Christmas.

I think this such a great image for making several CAS style Christmas cards!  Yay for getting yet another Christmas card onto my pile!! :)  So be sure to get those Holiday creations and enter in the Addicted to Stamps challenge!! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by this evening!!
I enjoy reading all of your thoughts!!  See you soon!
