DL.ART November Linky Challenge - Anything Goes

Happy first day of November!! Wow, this year has absolutely flown by!! I hope those of you who celebrate Halloween had a safe and happy one!! It's time for a new monthly linky challenge at DL.ART and as always for the month-long linky, the theme is Anything Goes. If you use the code l01210, Diana will give you 10% off your order at DL.ART.


For my cards, I created two circular Christmas cards. I cut the shape with Spellbinders Grand Circles. The papers are from Maja Designs.


Texture paste was added through a stencil and while the paste was still wet, I sprinkled it with Sparkle N Sprinkle Crystal Ice glitter.


A Tattered Lace Lamp Post die is the central feature of the card. The banner is a Joy Crafts Banner die and the sentiment is from My Craft Spot (no longer in business).


The birds were cut again in white and covered in Crystal Ice glitter. The poinsettias are from Wild Orchid Crafts.


Tucked under the flowers are Impression Obsession Pine Branches and Pine Sprig Dies and some sisal. The gorgeous ribbon is RAO Red from The Newspaper Bundle. The card was finished off with a DecoArt Snow Writer and some paint splatters with a Tim Holtz Splatter Brush.


I am entering this in the following challenges:

1) Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
2) Little Scrap Pieces - Show It Off Saturday
3) Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
4) The Merry Christmas Challenge - Anything Christmas Goes
5) Sparkle N Sprinkle November Challenge - Anything Goes using Glitter...


Now it's your turn!! Head on over to DL.ART to see the amazing projects my design team sisters have created for today's challenge!! Then link up your Anything Goes project!! I can't wait to see what you create :)

Hi, Lisa! Happy November 1! Two amazing round Christmas cards revealing their snowy secrets and flowery beauty! It's a Winter Wonderland as I wander through yet another of your incredible Fantasy gardens! Gorgeous details, and I love how you changed the colors a little to show how differently the creations are with a simple change. I especially am in love with your banner - the words are perfect with your design! Lisa, best of all, because your card is round, it can be used for home decor or placed on a tree or wreath! BEAUTIFUL! love, de

Wow Lisa!! I was feeling kind of draggy this morning but you have lit a fire under my behind now and I am heading to my craft room to make a couple of Christmas cards... and I am sooooo stealing these amazing designs!!! You are such an inspiration my friend, there is just not a single thing about these I would change if I had all the right products! The papers, the lovely stencil design, the poinsettia arrangement, the pops of red, the little banner sentiment, it's all so perfectly arranged and amazingly beautiful!! Thank you for jump starting my day!

So apparently it's going up to 20 degrees today, perfect day to get outside and take some photos in The Shire!! Hope you are having some lovely weather as well my friend! Enjoy the first day of November. hugs :)
