Simple Doodles Sneak Peaks :0)

Well I have been busy working on a few items that I can not show you until next week ;0)
so ......
if you check out my blog starting Monday the 7th you will see the exciting news I have been preparing for!!! I am sure if you are a regular viewer of my blog you will not be that surprised, and probably already have an idea of what the news will be :0) I will tell you that I have been walking on cloud 9 for the past 2 weeks due to this :0) OK no more hints you'll just have to come back on Monday and read my blog :0) **Shhh don't tell Gloria as I don't want her to turn green with envy!! LOL**

Now to catch up on my 365 Cards:

Day 278: "You can't miss it"
Take an image, and don't add color to the image, except for one element, which should be glittered. The rest of the image should be a solid color (any color is fine). The idea is that the glittered portion of the image really pops!
I used 2 of the soon to be released digi's from Simple Doodles, the band aid (printed on tan card stock) and the sentiment. I poked holes, popped it, and glittered the heart on the band aid with the only stickles that I have to match a heart so it is a bit light.

Day 279: "A Little Wordy" **is Pam trying to tell me something about my post ??? LOL**
Cover the background of your card with words, and there are a lot of ways to do this. You can stamp it, type it/print it, pull some text out of a book or magazine, etc

I used the soon to be released Santa digi and the holly digi (that you can buy now) form Simple Doodles I flocked the fur on his hat and glittered up his beard. I found the words to the song Jolly old Saint Nicholas on line and printed them out to fit the challenge. :0)

Day 280: "Kind of like a candy cane" **I think Pam has been mixing her "special" coffee with her "special" eggnog! LOL

Here's a riddle for you: What do you get when you cross your card with a candy cane?Answer: TODAY'S CHALLENGE!The specifics: Put red and white stripes somewhere on your card.

OK Pam riddle me this: What happens when Santa gets a hold of your "special" drink??? The answer is on my card! LOL

I don't have any red and white striped paper so being the 365 addict that I am .... I made my own to use!!! :0) I cut strips of each @ 1/4" and glued them together onto a piece of card stock then punched the corners and oval out. I have used the fireplace which is another soon to be released digi from Simple Doodles. sentiment is computer generated.

Whew ! That's a lot for one post but if you stuck with me I thank you :0)
Now what could Pam have in store for us next week????? ;0)
