Happy Holidays and December Challenge

Hello friends and Happy Holidays,

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving.  I still can't believe that we are in December already.  I live near New Orleans, Louisiana, so even it's Winter, we still have 70s degree weather.  Warm weather makes you forget that Christmas is approaching.  Call me crazy, but I do miss the snowy day during Christmas in Denver.

Anyhow, today, I'm so honor to have Vicky Papaioannou as a guest designer this month.  Vicky is the reason I came back to stamping in 2011 and have not stopped since.  She is such an amazing artist and inspiration!  Check out her beautiful card, made out of scrapped papers... AWESOME!!




For this challenge, you have until January 25th to enter your card(s).  And we will have a challenge winner as well as a winner randomly select from all comments.  Please scroll down for inlinkz!!

Challenge Winner will receive a $20 gift certificate to Butterfly Reflections, Ink.  

Also, we'll randomly select a winner from all comments to receive the stamp set: Floral Fancies.  So if you submit a card for the challenge, be sure to leave a comment as well!  

Floral Fancies

And here are the winner and favorites of November Challenge.  Congratulations ladies, please proudly display your PIC badges.  Badges can be found here.
