RRCB101 and a Winner

Happy Tuesday, peeps!  It's time for another Retro Rubber Challenge...this is the last one of this year!  Before I show you my card, though, I want to announce the winner of my blog candy from our 100th challenge!  It's #8, FIONA!!!  Woohoo!  I love her cards, too!  So Fiona, if you'll contact me (my email address is at the top right sidebar), I will get your goodies in the mail to you!

So on to this week's this a sweet inspiration photo or what?!

Image may contain: text

I pulled out an old Penny Black set that I have had for several years and stamped, colored, and glittered this little guy:

I used Memento Black ink and SU Blends to color him in...I had a little "blip" when trying to use Wink of Stella on top of Memento ink....just take my advice, don't do it!  Or at least be very, very careful when doing it  Anyway, I covered it up with some Dazzling Diamond glitter, LOL!

The background is some CTMH glimmer paper diecut with the Swirly Snowflakes die, and I added a very old Papertrey sentiment on a stitched tag and finished it off with a (very old) glimmer brad!  It feels good to use up some of these "old" things, LOL!

I hope you'll play along with our last challenge of 2018...if you've already gotten all your Christmas cards done for this year, maybe you can start on next year's!  Or make a wintry birthday card!  At any rate, can't wait to see what you create!

John had never seen Cassidy do her karate lessons, so Friday night we watched her first night of sparring.  Not being an aggressive person by nature, it freaks me out to see them "attack" each other!  She likes it, though!

Dana happened to catch this shot as Cass was jumping; it just cracks me up!  Her instructor said that it takes most Jedis many years to perfect "floating" and Cassidy got it on the first night!! LOL!

Thanks for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!

He's wrapped up so cosily, he makes me shiver! Those glimmery snowflakes make a perfect setting for him as does the cool blue of the base. As always, LeAnne, this is just fabulous.

I adore this sweet and adorable snowman, he looks totally cozy and stylish all wrapped up in fuzzy goodness.
Love the shimmery background of the snowflakes and the swirl on top of the Soft Sky card base.
And I always enjoy seeing Cassidy in action, she is one fabulous and sweet little girl.
Thank you for sharing these pictures with us.
