Can you believe it’s December already??  I certainly can’t!  It seems like 2011 just flew by… and now it’s almost gone!

However, before it disappears, we have a new announcement from Through the Craftroom Door… A new monthly sponsor for our challenges is Aletha with Ippity!  What does this mean for you?  Well, if you join in on the TTCRD challenges and fulfill the requirements for the challenge, then you will be placed in a drawing to receive an $18 gift certificate to shop at Aletha’s store at the end of the month.  So please join us in the fun and you might win this awesome prize!  This is in addition to the prizes being offered for each bi-weekly challenge, by the way.

Aletha's Ippity Store


And now on to the challenge details!  For this challenge, the theme is Happy Holidays.  The requirements include creating a holiday card using 3 embellishments.  You could win a Gilli Goodie Bag from anaRy of Gilli Stamps!  What better way to bring in the holiday season than with a new bag of goodies from Gilli??

For this card, I used Lil Chef Gilli.  Nothing brings the holidays home for me more than family, friends, and homemade baked goods and cooking!  My aunt is one of the best cookie makers that I know, and she always brings over the best cookies for ALL the holidays!  (We just finished off her turkey and leaf-shaped cookies that she brought over for Thanksgiving.)  The background of this card is from Basic Grey’s Eskimo Kisses paper pad.  I loved the wood grain as the background… The ribbon and sparkly twine are from MSE.  I also used iRock gems in the upper right-hand corner of the card.  They are actually purple gems.  I also used Jessica Lynn Original‘s Yummy Cookies set to make the cookies that Chef Gilli “baked.”  The thumbprint and peanut butter cookies also have Rock Candy Stickles on them to give them a sugared look.  Last, but not least, I used the C is for Cookie word collage from TLC Creations and matted it on some paper from my stash. The images are colored with the following Copics:  0, C00, C1, C2, E00, E02, E23, E31, E33, E39, E42, E43, E44, E47, R32, R39, RV66, RV69, YR21, and YR31.

This card has been entered into the following challenges:
