There is a party going on - the 12 Days of Christmas - and it is proving to be a lot of fun with a group of very talented ladies. In celebration of her 1 millionth visitor to her blog, Sharon Johnson
and several of her friends are hosting an online party. Each day anyone who visits has a chance to win some fantastic blog candy (in this case stamp sets, accessories, etc) just by leaving a comment on a blog and is invited to play along with the challenges. There are two different sites offering prizes each day. This is Day 4 of the party - but since I don't get to play along until evening - my posts are always from the previous day.

Day Three's challenge was hosted by Tammy Herschberger. The challenge was to create a card that can be mass produced in a short amount of time. My card for this challenge takes about 4-5 minutes to create. All 8 were created in 42 minutes - with some of the time hopping up to run to my craft room to grab an item I forgot to bring out to the dining room table (e.g. ink pad, stamp etc.).

Supplies Used:
Big Shot
Cuttlebug Snowflake Die
Cuttlebug Snow Dots Embossing Folder
Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder
Whisper White Card Stock
Bashful Blue Card Stock
The Paper Studio Gemstone
Fiskars cutter with scoring blade
Savvy Stamps Greeting Stamp
Stampin'Up! Bashful Blue InkPad

I had originally intended to use a light blue ribbon adorned with snowflakes just above the greeting - but the blues didn't match so instead I added two embossed stripes. You can just make them out in the photo. If I make more of these I will use Bordering Blue so that I can use the ribbon - I think it will give the cards a little added "POP".
Thanks for visiting today. If you have time check out the links and come join the party - you might even win some blog candy! Wouldn't that be fun!!!!!

Love your blog! The Rooster is gorgeous! I love all country critters. This Rooster came from a 2001 SU Set called Roosting. There are 6 chicks in a row, a hen on eggs and a basket of eggs too. :)
