Designing and Christmas!

Happy Monday, everyone! My Santa Ian card is for two challenges:

1. Basic Grey Challenge. It is a photo inspiration:

Thought I'd mimick the blinds effect :). A bit shabby chic, and I love those stripes!

2. Christmas Card Challenge #48 at Sparkle's blog. The idea was to incorporate multiple squares.

Now I think it's such a cool deal to get to make cards AND enter them in these challenges! Such fun! And decorating is another one of my hobbies, so it was great to combine two in one. See more about this at the end of the post.

CS- Bazzill
PP- Cosmo Cricket (red background), Rusty Pickle (stripes)
Tags- Basic Grey
Stickers- s.e.i.
Brads- Basic Grey
Other- Copics, Ribbon, Stickles, Gina K cardstock.

Here's a close-up of the stickles & the folds:

I wanted to share with you a favorite picture of a room found in my favorite magazine, Domino. Unfortunately, it went out of publication.

Love those yellow stripes! And I designed my baby's room accordingly so.

I am on a roll this week as far as winning blog candies! I won Joseph. Am hoping that the third luck's a charm and I'll win this at Amy's blog! Can't wait till tonight when we get to buy them!!!
