Artsystamper Challenge Time

Hello my friends!
I have some exciting news today!
It's time for a new challenge over on the Artsystamper Challenge Blog where the team is showcasing digital images designed by Beverly Cole at Artsystamper Digitals!   The 1st and 3rd Monday of each month brings another Artsystamper Challenge and today's theme is


We are collaborating with the Double Trouble Challenge Blog
here's the LINK ... come check it out!!


For today's digital card, I have used the 

I have used the precolored images and designed my scene using Word10 software.
Yep, it's a Word Processing software by Microsoft and it works just
fine for designing cards too.  Not just for letters anymore!!  LOL 

Ooops almost forgot to mention I created the background 'snow' by using the

LOTS of fabulous images in this set too and OH MY ... how much fun can you have when you put these two sets together ... my mind is swirling with ideas already!

I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun!
You do NOT have to used Beverly's images (of course we would love to see them if you have them) ... but you must follow the theme to qualify for the prize.

PRIZE you say ???
YEP ... The winner of our challenges will receive the stamp set of their choice from TheArtsystamperShop.  Beverly Cole's selections offer stamps and sentiments in each set as well as pre-colored images for easy, last minute cards.  Why not take a moment and check out what she has in the store!!   AND Bev will be awarding 1 free image (her choosing) to each of the TOP 3 Winner's  WOW!  Now there's incentive to play along! 

SO, since I already had this fun card created for my Artsystamper DT obligation before knowing we were collaborating with Double Trouble Challenge Blog, I decided to create one more card that I was sure would fit their theme ... aka Thing1, Thing2 and Thing3.  LOL

 I have once again used the North Pole Stamp Set 

to create my focus image as well as the Poinsettia Set

and the 'rope' bow in the image is from the Seaside Holiday set

which you could receive absolutely FREE when you purchase any of Bev's holiday sets.
 I hope you will hop on over to the Artsystamper Digitals Challenge Blog and enter!
You will also see more inspiring designs from the Artsystamper Addicts DT ... so much fun!!
