Tuesday Morning Sketches #24

Good Morning! I have so much to share with you today so we're just going to jump into this week's challenge. With the Christmas holiday so close and holiday baking is on everyone's minds, I figured this week was perfect for a recipe challenge. And to add that cherry on the top - it's a Judged Challenge. So don those aprons and let's start cookin'! This week's ingredients are:

* 1 Tag
* 1 Hidden Message
* Lots of Glitter

So here's what the design team did with their ingredients...

First up we have a Jr. DT Featurette and can you guess who's daughter made this? She's a chip off her mama's block, that's for sure! This yummy sweet card was created by Elvira "LV" Arriaza, age 13, daughter of Gabby. LV used the peppermint sundae from Joni's last release and click on the photo to enlarge so you can see that she used diamond glaze and glitter to give the candies their shine and glitz!

Then pull the tag up to reveal her hidden message! This is such a fabulous card!!

Next up we have a beautiful Christmas card from Theresa. The paper and the ribbon are absolutely gorgeous. And then there's the lovely blue Christmas tree in the back.

Then swing the nontraditional tag to the left to reveal her sweet message.

And here's a card from our sponsor. Isn't this just too cute? This snow boy loves his teddy bear and Joni's card looks like it's hidden message contains something I'd love - a Target gift card!

Iwona was feeling very festive! Her bright colors and lots of textures is sure to make anyone smile with this Christmas greeting.

You pull the tag out of it's pocket to reveal it's hidden message and lovely glittered snowflake.

Here's Tammy's card and this is so fun and festive. She created the tag as her focal image and then, just give it a slide...

And you reveal the hidden sentiment. Very clever Tammy, I love it!

This image is Classy Shopper and she's being released today in Inktegrity's shop along with two other snowy friends.

Pull the tag out to the right to reveal it's hidden message. The tag end sentiment says To a Classy Friend and is included with the Classy Shopper set. The hidden message is written by me and says: True friendship is... She listens with both ears open... She loves with all her heart... And she never tells your hubby about the shopping bag!

OK - now it's your turn! Let's see your blue ribbon recipes. Link directly to your project in Mr. Linky and leave us a comment. Remember this is a judged challenge so not only will you win a great prize from Joni, but you'll be our featured stamper on January 5th!

** This challenge is now closed. Thank you to everyone who participated. **

  2. Oh My Goodness I love the challenge and that verse about friends reminded me of my friend that I go shopping with all the time!!! It made me laugh out loud!!! I try to get home before he does so he doesn't see/know what I bought! he he he Glad he wasn't here to ask me what was so funny! ;-)
