It's Always Christmas with Guest Designer Erin Stephenson~

Happy March my friends!
So I hear that the East coast is getting another round of snow again! Sheesh! When will it end? I know that is the question everyone is wanting to know. I sure hope the snow is gone in two weeks so that I do not have to deal with it. YUCK!
That groundhog really needs a good spankin' LOL!
Well my friends I have a special Guest here on the blog today so please help me welcome
the very sweet & talented Erin Stephenson!!!

Hey everyone! Erin here!
I am super excited that I was asked to be a Guest Designer on Jo's blog! How cool right? I decided to combine my guest designer's project with my other challenge that I have going on today so I hope you don't mind.  Okay So Guess what?
  Today is the start of challenges at a new blog that I design for called Completely Christmas! It's all Christmas all the time  I am so excited.  Hopefully this will help me stay on top of my Christmas projects this year.  It will be anything goes Christmas related except for
 once a month we will have a sketch challenge.
 Weekly challenges with awesome prizes.We would love to see you  play along with us. 
 This week our sponsor is Lacy Sunshine.
  And here is my GD/ DT card:

 I got to work with this adorable image from lacy Sunshine.  Colored with promarkers.  All the papers are from my stash of Oriental Trading  brand paper.  I added lots of bling with gems and pearls. I used a 3d snowflake sticker in the upper left corner. How cute are the blue snowflakes I added around the image? The sentiment and the inked snowflakes around the image are from a clear stamp set called
 Tags and Trimmings from 3 Twenty Crafts.

Have you heard of them?  If not go check them out! The quality of the stamps is great.  I can't wait to use the other stamps on my projects! They have just released some new ones as well! Card layout inspired by the sketch at Sketch N Stash. Thanks everyone for taking the time to check out my card and thanks to Jo for having me as Guest Designer today!
