I can not believe we are already in September! At CCAYR their theme was presents and also similar was 52 Christmas cards throwdown. They actually show a beautiful picture of gifts. Christmas comes early at Anything Goes and I always try to recycle something and I hope we will have snow this coming year:) I also always love sparkles so it is on almost every card in some form. One of these had a quilty theme a while back so the first card was using that image and I had a present sticker and I used glitter to fill in the gift. I used an old ribbon and mounted the cardstock on top of the ribbon. I finished it with gold stickers and a Merry Christmas. The second Picture I recycled the stickers from the present to make a 2nd gift card. I coloured it and mounted it on shiny paper I had lying around. The 3rd card I used perfect powders and used a present stamp to make the background and then used several layers of paper I had, again, laying around and mounted the Christmas stamp that I also used the powders on to make a more manly card. My Mr. Penguin for the 4th card is done in purples. I had used powders for the background and then placed the penguin on top of that. I used silver cardstock, purple cardstock and an old ribbon I have had for ages and made a very sad looking bow to finish it off. My last card shows some snow. I used the cuddlebug and the snowflake design for the background. I took some very shiny sparkly cardstock and mounted the penguins on top and finished it off with some snowflakes(I got these new) and crystals.
