Happy Saturday everyone and welcome to HIMCR Challenge.

This weeks sponsor is Spiced Sunshine!!

this weeks challenge is any Holiday and this week I am doing Christmas..(Christmas in July).  I cholse to of the spiced Sunshines digital images that were for Christmas.

I chose this adorable animated little holiday cup.  I colored hom with Crayola colored pencils and added some multi colored dots of ink from my Spectrum Nooir markers..LG1, LG2, LG3 AND 
LG 5  .I added some lace paper ribbon and used Close to My Heart lagoon cardstock.  I found some stickers and one said Noel so added that at the top and voila finished card...then I made another one..

I thought this little owl was a cutie..I again used Crayola colored pencils.  I decided to dig through my box of scraps which has been growing... and growing and found the papers to use.  the stamp os Close to My Heart and bling from my box of scraps,..imagine that I even have scraps of   Anywho, i finished it off with some ribbon, made a double bow, and button.  I hope you like my post, and are inspired to link up a project for the challenge.  make sure you check out the other Design team members creations.
