RE-Inspired with Freebies

It is the second week of the BE-Inspired Challenge over at The Alley Way Stamps (TAWS) and it is a CUTE picture...

So I get to RE-inspired you to play along.  And as an added thrill today, the stamps that I have used on my card have just been announced on the TAWS blog as a freebie with $40 purchase through the month of December!

I love the colors and I was particularly drawn to the stockings - I liked the random splashes of color.

Holidays Sparkle

You need a close-up to see that the card really does sparkle!!

A big thank you to two challenges that helped me with this card...

colourq - Although I am very sad to announce that I am officially out of my first ever Stampin' Up color.  I have ink and paper back to Mint Melody and Mauve Mist (anybody remember those?)  But I pulled out my Glorious Green pad to make this - it was dry - so I rummaged through my ink refills and then rummaged again and again...it's gone.  I am officially out of Glorious Green.  There is nothing quite like Glorious Green - I used Garden Green on this card.

Now that's a fun, sparkly card! I had actually forgotten how nice Glorious Green was and though I don't have the stamp pad anymore I was lucky that I saved the marker. None of the other greens compare, I think.

This is so fine, Kims! Great way to showcase those challenge colors!

(I'm dying to know the condition of your tree when you went to put it up today!)

Aw....so sorry you were out of Glorious Green! I DO remember that color, as well as the mauve and mint...and how about "ROCKET RED"? I was just going through some older ink pads last night as I was stamping with an 8-year-old, and came across ALL those colors! Anyhoo, your card is simply delightful and I love the Garden Green just as much....so fun & cheery!! Thanks for sharing this with us at the CQC this week!
