We're Back!

Yep, that's right, it's the first challenge from Christmas Stampin' All Year Long for 2013!!!  We're going to start you off nice and easy: Anything Goes!  (as long as it is Holiday related)  Doesn't get any easier than that.

 As soon as I saw this sketch from Sweet Stop Sketches


I had the idea to create flaps that open up to reveal the inside of the card.  It took a bit of work, but it turned out pretty much like what I had imagined.  Because I was also trying out the triple time stamping technique, I lined up all the layers and then stamped the image on all of them at once.  Unfortunately, because of the card design I had to use my stamp-a-ma-jig to line up and restamp the image on the largest white panel.  Otherwise I would have had this big blank spot in the center.  That would not have been cool.

So, it's time to head over to the CSAYL blog to get all the details of this challenge.  AND we are welcoming some new DT members--show 'em some love!  And make sure you play along; I can't wait to see what you come up with.
