Hello again, Friends!
Now we are on to Fat Pages and Cards with Attitude!  Our theme this fortnight is "Thanks for the Bling."  Sort of a play on Thanksgiving, but with our fans who do not celebrate Thanksgiving in mind.  Clever, eh?  LOL.  Oh dear, I remember now that Abbie didn't really know what Bling was so she changed the theme to Add A Sentiment or Tag, the same as our sister challenge, ATC's and Cards with Attitude.  But I did mine with Bling in mind. LOL  But of real importance, you can follow the theme or do Anything Goes!  We always have Anything Goes.  That way you can do your Christmas cards early or a birthday coming up. Very convient challenge with such fantastic sponsor images for you to win.  This fortnight our sponsors are Sassy Studio Designs, My Grafico and my very own DT, A & T Digital Designs (who has the images of the post just below this one). 

I colored this Sassy Studio Designs image, The Nutcracker, with Prisma Pencils.  Here she is in all her glory, just dancing away.  Oh wait a sec, I've never seen the Nutcracker play, can anyone tell me what it is about?  In pictures I have seen, a Ballerina is dancing and singing to the Toy Soldier.  I wonder what she is saying to him......

No reason not to see you at Fat Pages and ATC Challenges!  Please drop by and check us out.  We have wonderful inspiration from our very talented DT and the best sponsors ever!  Oh and Top 3 too!  New changes are coming also, so it is all very exciting at these two challenge.  Most important is that we love seeing what you create!

Bye bye for now.  Remember those Bright Spots!


PS I have to give credit to Karen C, who made the pin poking in the ribbon.  Isn't the netting just perfect for the image?   You can visit her blog to see her fab cards and also the link to her Etsy store where she sells her pins.  You have to go and look!  You will ewwww and ahhhhh at all the lovelies she has!   (she also sent me the flourish that I colored with a clear Stardust gel pen)
