Just Us Girls - 3D Christmas Challenge

Hi everyone! Did you see my new blog header? I asked Heather Rolin (who owns Individual Blog Banners) to update my blog header and signature for the holidays, and she did a fab job! It looks so festive! Thanks Heather!

Today is Saturday (woohoo!!) and it's time for another Just Us Girls challenge. Kristin has challenged us to add a 3D holiday embellishment to our projects! I had the perfect embellishment for my card.

I bought this set from Taylored Expressions last month called Merry Little Cocktail and found Christmas wine charms I had never used. So I created my card around it! The sketch is from Taylored Expressions from last week, too. I used SU's Jolly Holiday dp and paired it with Old Olive and Vintage Cream cardstock. The ribbon is old olive taffeta. I added red and star dust stickles to the image, green glitter dots, and the tree charm with some baker's twine. Very simple card to do...not much coloring! Love it!

Want more inspiration? Head on over to the JUGs blog and see the amazing projects the DT and our featured designer, Cheryl Rowley, did this week! This is Cheryl's last with us already...where has the time gone? Stop by their blogs to leave some much deserved love!

On a personal note, I'm picking my new Dodge Journey up this morning! I was ready for something different after having 5 minivans! I'm really excited because I've never had power locks and windows on any of my cars! My hubby never wanted them because he was afraid they'd break and be a pain to fix. (And his best friend is a mechanic...go figure!!) It's black, which I know will be a challenge to keep clean, especially in our weather up north. But, I've always wanted a black card! So I'll be tooling around town today having fun!

Thanks for stopping by and listening to my rambling! Have a great weekend!

Ooooh I love this sentiment and your card is just fabulous for a friend - I have a lot of wine charms laying about - great idea for using them. AND how is the new car? How fun and exciting for you - I STILL keep my mini van - too many things to schlep around to give it up just yet. :-) Love your new blog header too - it's well done.
