Welcome to TWISTED THURSDAY # 17 &
Christmas in July
challenges, twists, prizes, discounts & free shipping

I know it's hardly the weather to be thinking of that Jolly Fat Man in the RED suit...BUT, it's just too darn HOT and we at S2G thought ALL of YOU could use something to 'COOL' off with... So, let us introduce S2G CHRISTMAS STAMPS. For the gal who's gotta have it now, All NEW Digi Images and Papers! Won't you join S2G & The Ladies with Attitude for the next 3 weeks & get all RED, GREEN, & JOLLY with us? Myself and the rest of the DT will take you on a week by week TOUR thru the S2G Christmas line and share lots of creative projects with you. We are also excited about the great new "TWISTS"... that are lined up for the TT challenges! They are just perfect with our S2G whimsical Christmas images!
Here is this week's sketch and the "TWIST" is to use DISTRESSING & A HOLIDAY THEME

For my card, I used a rather large, whimsical image titled (SG H6 Mice & Mistletoe ). I didn't alter the sketch but I did flip it to accomodate my stamped image. Doesn't that ribbon and bow look at though they are holding the Mistletoe over that funny little couple? After running the pink CS and a new piece of our new Digital paper through my Cuttlebug, I distressed the edges using the side of my scissors and thumb nail. I wanted the Digi paper to stand out a bit more so I inked the edges & used the stamp pad to distress the paper a teeny bit.
