Dies R Us Challenge December 1, 2021(Anything Goes!)

Happy Holidays!

Time is ticking away...tick tock...tick tock!  It's nearly time for Christmas.  How did it get to December already?  Time flies when you're having fun, especially when you are making Christmas cards!  And, I have a Christmas card to share with you with a lovely red cardinal.  I love seeing cardinals this time of year, especially against a bright white snow, so pretty!

It's time for another challenge and the theme is Anything Goes!  We ask that you use at least one die on your project for the challenge that Dies R Us sells!  Please come and join the fun and have a chance to win a gift certificate at the Dies R Us Challenge!  

For today's card, I started with a teal card base and paired it with paper from Lawn Fawn.  The cardinal, sentiment, and small snowflakes are from Newton's Nook.  The snowflake stencil and scalloped circle are from Lawn Fawn.  I used Nuvo glimmer paste for the large snowflakes.  Red ribbon and gems to finish the card.

Dies R Us has a sister store with warehouses in the USA and Canada called Didi Crafts

It will ship to both the US and Canada.  Didi Crafts will carry some of the same products as DRU, but most will be different.  Now our Canadian friends don't have to worry about huge taxes or shipping fees. How great is that!?!

My teammates have some fabulous inspiration for you today.  Sit back, relax, and take a look.... (you can click on their name to go to their personal blogs and get more detailed information about each project)
