Chill'n with My Friends

This is the third Wednesday of December, which means it is the day that Barb, Kelly, and I reveal our Ready, Set, Go cards. 

Not sure what Ready, Set, Go is? Well, it's a lot of fun! And a bit of creativity. And an extreme challenge theme.

Ready, Set, Go is an idea that Kelly came up with and she invited Barb and I to join her on the adventure. We take turns choosing the theme (this month it's Barb's turn), but the idea is for it to be a bit more challenging than just the average theme.

This is Barb's theme...

My challenge this month is pretty simple.  Please make a winter card, using various shades of blue.  Be sure to add some sparkle or shine to your card.  Extra credit if you use a stamp that has not been inked up or one that has been neglected for a few years. 

Thank you for a fun theme, Barb!

I have quite a few Whipper Snapper Design stamps that I purchased at huge discounts both in the SCS buy/sell/trade forum and years ago at a bin sale Whipper Snapper held in Wisconsin. I chose one of these stamps for my card. I'm not sure I've ever used it before. It's a cute little bear - not sure its name. It might be called Santa Bear, I'm not sure. The sentiment is also from Whipper Snapper Designs.

It's difficult to see the shine/sparkle. but it's there. The snowflake brad is a glittery one and the ribbon is, too. I also added accents of "shine" to the pom pom on the hat using a Viva Pearl Pen.

I hope Kelly and Barb like my card. 
Be sure to check out Barb's blog and Kelly's blog to see what they did with this Ready Set Go theme!
