Hey all, and welcome back to my blog!  It's the start of a new week, and also the start of the Christmas With The Cuties 2020 challenges!  We have enjoyed a nice long break, and we are ready to offer you loads of inspiration to help you get those Christmas cards done for this year!  So, let's go!

Our theme this month is ATG, with the option to go for clean and simple. Our sponsor is the fabulous Bugaboo Stamps. I chose to go the CAS route, but I also decided to make 2 cards!  I figured since I have quite the collection of Jodie's fabulous images, I might as well do a double shot!  The top image is WINBIRDSKI, and the bottom one is WINBIRDSLED.  I think these images are from the old shop, and Jodie hasn't gotten them moved into the new store yet, so I can't link  them for you.  Hopefully Jodie will find time to get them in there soon!

To create my scenes, I created a cloud stencil using the Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloud Borders dies, and inked them onto my card base using Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink.  The hills were made using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders dies, cut from Recollections white card stock.  To add some sparkle, I ran Nuvo drops in White Blizzard along the stitched edges.  I also added some to the white part of the hat, and to the three snow splashes.  The images were colored using alcohol markers, and I popped them up with foam tape.  The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn's Mice on Ice stamp set, stamped in VersaClair Nocturne ink.
