Creating a Scene

Happy start to another week blogging friends!
Do you have your shopping done?  Baking?  Wrapping? Decorations? Christmas Cards mailed?
Dear Oh Dear ... no wonder we need a Check List!!
So much to do ... so little time!

As most of you ... I still have some of the 'above' not checked off my list yet but did want to take a moment and create a card with one of my favorite styles/techniques in mind ... Creating A Scene!

The products I have used on this card are:
Paper:  Black cs, White cs
Stamps:  Heartfelt Creations 'HCPC 3432 Magnificent Spruce Trees', Crafty Secrets 'SL46 Winter Wishes' (sentiment), AMuse 'Lots of Flakes', AMuse 'Santa Silhouette'
Inks:  Tim Holtz 'Broken China', 'Stormy Sky', 'Evergreen Bough', 'Iced Spruce', Brilliance 'Ice Blue', Versafine Black
Accessories: Eclipse Masking Medium, Jumbo Sponge Daubers, Various Stickles

I am always amazed at some of the GORGEOUS scenes I've seen created by other crafters out there in blogland and just keep thinking that if I practice, I might some day get as good as them.  SO ... that's exactly what I intend to do.  Keep practicing ... and the following challenges are helping me out!

2 Sisters Challenge Blog  - Snowflakes
Bloggers Challenge - Make or Create a Scene
Fairy Tale Challenge - O Christmas Tree
Stempelsonnen Challenge - Anything Goes with Stamp as main focus
Bearly-Mine Challenge - Santa is on his way!

Well that's it for me today!  I really must get busy checking some of these projects off of my ToDo List!  Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a peek!
