Shimmer Gingy:

Good morning all!  What a week weather wise, I think it's been the hottest week all Summer.  Yesterday it got up to 34C ( 93F) which is pretty hot for September.  Personally, I am waiting for the snow - yes, I am crazy.

With all this snow talk I think it is appropriate to share a Christmas card!  You will now see me go into full on Christmas cards since I realized I am leaving next week until October (sneaks up on a person!)

Gingy is full of shimmer (hence the reflection in the photo).  Doesn't he look good enough to eat?? I "aged" the lace from white to creamy with inks - I am quite happy with the result.  I wish I would have thought of this 6 months ago when I needed creamy colored lace :)

Card Ingredients:
StampFairy digi; My Mind's Eye papers; Recollections shimmer cardstock; Labels Nine Nesties;  Copics; Gelly Roll white pen; Martha Stewart Crystal Glitter;  CraftSmart Chocolate Brown and Gold inks;  Celebrate It ribbon;  Dress It Up button;  Creatology lace;  twine

I made Gingy for the following challenges:
Charisma Cardz - song inspiration: "Sugar Sugar" by The Archies
Do You Stack Up - texture
Crafts and Me Challenge - buttons and bows
Christmas Card Challenges - Chocolate, Cream, and Cranberry
Crafty Ribbons - Festive Cheer in September
CASE Study Challenge - CASE this gorgeous card from Julie Lacey:

Have a wonderful, wonderful Friday and weekend!  Stay crafty.
Deanne :)
