Happy News!

Before I show you my card for today, I have some great news! If you follow my blog, or visit with any regularity, you know that I've been on the Apron Strings Designs CT for 2009. I did my last kit for them in October. Well....(drum roll please), Lori has asked me to become a 2010 Sous Chef! So I'll be staying on the team, except for 2010 I'll be on the Card Kit DT instead of working with the page kits. I can't wait to get started. I'll be doing a card kit every other month for 2010!

I do hope, if you've not checked out the ASD kits (and store) that you will stop by. There is also a blog! You may be seeing more of me on the ASD blog in the New Year. Plus, Lori has some other things up her sleeve that I hope to be part of...so...you heard it here first!!

My card today works for 5, yep, 5 challenges! They are listed below. I've not done a multi-challenge card in a long time, so wanted to give it a try. I used K&Company paper and a digital stamp from Simple Doodles (where I'll be guest designing for December).

This card is full of sparkle! The paper has glitter on it, plus I used a glitter acrylic snowflake, and some glitter rub-on snowflakes! I'm not sure what made me go for this quilted look, except that the sketch from SSSC had lots of strips. But I kinda like it!

Challenges:
Sweet Sunday Sketch #45: use the sketch
365 Cards Day 269: Use knots (I have one pink knot)
Pile it On #25: Use Rub-ons (I have 4 rub-on snowflakes)
Christian Paper Crafts Color Monday #32: Tempting Passion, use the colors tempting turquoise, pink passion, and green galore (I did not use SU colors, but I did use pink, green, and turquoise)
Simple Doodles: use one of their digi stamps and metal (I used the tall hat snowman and a metal sentiment by K&Company)
ETA: Christine told me this is also good for a challenge at Practical Scrappers! They asked for stitching...fake or real. LOL So that's SIX challenges!

That's it. Only one card today. I'll be back tomorrow with my MOSD November project. It's a good one, if I do say so myself, so don't miss it!
