November - 12 Months of Christmas Challenge

I can't believe it's been a whole week since I posted something. So before I get to my design team post (which I am late posting for, so sorry) let me give you a quick update on the twins. Valerie was released from the hospital on Sunday but Arthur remains in the NICU. So far so good with Valerie but it takes a lot of juggling and back and forth to the hospital when you have one baby in and one baby at home. So that has been a lot of my life for the past few days. We are hoping that in the next few days Arthur will also be released from the hospital. I'll try to get a picture up of the twins very soon. Yesterday was my last day at work so I am officially "retired." I won't be going into the office anymore but they could call me to work on special projects from home. Now back to regular programming. LOL!
Happy November! It's time for a new challenge over at 12 Months of Christmas Link Up. I did manage to get a card done for this challenge. I can't believe how fast the time goes. This month our theme is BINGO.

In order to have a chance to win the prize from our guest sponsor this month,be sure to follow one of the rows in the BINGO card featured below. Whichever row you chose, just please be sure to mention in your post the items you have chosen to useAlso, if you do follow the optional theme, be sure to add FT after your name so that we include you in the draw for the prize.

Remember, you don't need to follow the theme to link up your cards and earn a free paper each month, and have your name thrown into the year end draw for some extra digital goodies. You only need to follow the theme if you want a chance to win this month's sponsored prize of EITHER the Holiday Hoopla Digital Scrapbooking Kit OR five different mini kits (of six papers each) from the Christmas and/or Winter section from D├ęcosse's Dynamite Doodles.

For my card this month I used paper and a sentiment from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles. I paired them with a Bugaboo digital image. The image is colored with Copic markers and die cut with Spellbinder's Inverted Squares. The background for the image is Spellbinders scalloped squares. My background paper is Trees and Stars (from 12 Days of Christmas set 2015) and the top (window shade-like) paper is from Holiday Hoopla Textured Papers and punched with Stampin' Up! scallop punch. My sentiment is from Christmas Time digital set. I inked the sentiment with Squeezed Lemonade distress ink. So can you tell which column I used? I think it's pretty easy: green, die cut, tree, gift box and star.




I know that everyone will be making lots of Christmas cards this month so I hope that you will join us over at 12 Months of Christmas Link Up. Remember you can link up any Christmas theme card but if you use the BINGO theme you could win a prize. We'd love to see your BINGO cards.
I am entering these challenges:
Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you over at 12 Months of Christmas Link Up! Take care!

Happy official retirement! And, you are still busy but in a good way...the babies. Darling card with lots of eye candy. How did you manage to get those tow die cuts to match up so perfectly? I've made 3 winter. Arcs these past few days and not matches up to any of the bingo....bummer.

What a sweet little elephant helping with the tree! Great card, it is very festive!

Here's hoping both babies will be home together soon!

It's a bright, fun filled card with all the Christmas lovelies. You're amazing that you are able to keep up with your DTs, commenting, (Gasp! still had a job) and do all the things you're having to deal with, with the new babies. So pleased to hear one angel is at home, and hope her brother will soon be able to join the family. How exciting, and hopefully, just having the one baby for a day or so, will give the new parents time to settle in with her schedule, before having to cope with 2 babies at once. I can guess running back n forth to the hospital every day is taking a toll on ALL of you. God keep you all and let those babies thrive! Hugs & Blessings.
