Scrapbook challenge page

This is a challenge from Splitcoaststampers. The challenge is SBSc117 dated November 30, 2007. The designer/artist of this sketch is MICHELLE (flaxychick). I have decided to start doing the challenges - hopefully once or twice a week in the hopes of getting caught up on my scrapbooking - yeah right.
The paper is textured paper and it looks a little funky in the photo. I stamped a flower on the paper in Versamark and layered several paper flowers with a brad in the center.

I've Been Tagged!

Sophia tagged me and it has taken me forever to do it - sorry about that.

Here are the rules:
Link to your tagger (see above), and also post these rules on your blog.

Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.

Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.

Let them know they are TAGGED by leaving a comment on their blog.

So here we go, 7 facts about me:

1) I love Diet Coke and cold pizza for breakfast.

2) I secretly want a third child, but I don't think it's gonna happen!

3) I love to scrapbook, I was hooked from the moment I went to a home party.

4) I like to make cards using rubberstamps, I stayed away from going to stamp
parties for years because I just knew I would like it. It's true, Stampin' Up &
Close To My Heart get a lot of my money!

5) I think the guy on "Dirty Jobs" is sexy.

6) I would love to have a layout published in a magazine, but I am to insecure
to send in a page.

7) I am addicted to reading stamping/scrapbooking blogs.

Now 7 people to tag. Actually I only have 2 people to tag :(

Christmas Card

I thought I was all done with my cards when I discovered that I need to make about 10 more. I don't want to make the same design that I made before because I am bored with that. So here is one I made. It is totally not my design and all credit goes to Jackie Pedro and Julee Tillman - I am just a follower - lol. I found the idea at The Scalloped Edge (just scroll down until you see her card) and she got the basic layout of the card from Julee Tillman's "Mojo Monday". Anyway, I wanted to share because I thought it was a cute card. I just used a different sized card, and different stamps. I did use the Cuttlebug but I did not have their snowflake folder, instead I used the Fiskar's snowflake embossing template it does not emboss as deep and gives it a softer touch. Oh, and I used white shimmery paper and also used a glitter pen on Santa's beard and while puffy paint on his hat, and cuffs.
