It is time!!!!!!!!

Hello my friends, today is the day, it's release day over at ISC!!!!! Remember when I told you guys on Friday that we are having something special planned for today? Well, not in those exact words, but we are having a PARTY!!!!!! Today is the day that ISC is having it's FIRST, yes, FIRST ever Christmas Card Extravaganza/Blog Hop!!!! And we are celebrating for 3 DAYS. We were challenged by Betsy the owner of ISC to each choose one image from the Joyful Christmas stamp sheet and create a card making it the focal point. I don't know why, but for some reason I am not good at making Christmas cards, hmm I guess I am not feeling it yet ;D, but let me tell you. When I cut my images I had tons of ideas in my head and since the typical Christmas images where already taken, I've picked the flourish. So, let me show you my humble creation

It's a Joyful Christmas


Paper: PTI White, DP was provided by Betsy(sorry not sure of the name :C)

Stamps: ISC Joyful Christmas

Inks: SU Mellow Moss, Ranger Distress Ink Fired Brick

Accessories: Nesties Megabilities curved rectangles, Kaiser half pearls in red, snowflake button (I believe it is from WalMart), red sheer ribbon, foam tape, 3 D foam dots, Maya Road Vintage headpin

For my focal image I've decided to sponge around the flourish, so I left my Nesties die on the card stock and simply added the Fired Brick Distress Ink with a sponge so that the edges would still be white and draw more attention to the focal image. It's a pretty simple card, but that is what we are looking for for Christmas as most of us have to make tons of cards, right? ;D

This is it for my card, but wait, I have more for you!!!!! Guess what, since this is our FIRST ever Christmas Card Extravaganza you can WIN, 3 FREE of the "Newest" Christmas Stamp Sheets (Joyful Christmas, Eclectic Christmas, Festive Christmas)!!!!!! How cool is this??????? We are keeping it super easy for you too, all you have to do is head on over to the ISC Blog and leave a comment on what Christmas means to you & your family!!!! Super EASY, but you have to hurry up as this opportunity will end on WEDNESDAY October 14th!!!!!

Since this is a Blog Hop please don't just head on over to leave your comment, go on and see what the next ISC Architect in this HOP has created and which image she chose. It's Julie

Wait, don't hit that button yet, there is one more little tiny detail I have to share with you all ;D

ISC is also offering 10% off of your order!!!! The Christmas Stamp Line is jammed packed and for a limited time only the retail price has been reduced!!!!!

WOW, I think I have it all covered now!!! I have saved some more cards for this release for you all, so make sure you come back tomorrow to see what I have up my sleeve ;D.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
