Christmas Stampin' Meets In Style Stamps

Hi special friends... it's Friday and that means it's time for our weekly challenge at Christmas Stampin' All Year Long.

This week, we're sponsored by In Style Stamps. In Style is releasing their newest Christmas digital images today and the design team at CSAYL has the honor of showing you some great stuff, perfect for Christmas cards and check them out! They are beautiful, and fun to color. 

Our challenge at CSAYL is "Bling It Up". . . that means just add glitter and/or something sparkly to your card or project. That's a stretch for me.. I'm not a real 'bling' person. But I loved stepping outside my comfort zone when necessary.

If you have a chance to play along in our CSAYL challenge, you will have a chance to win 4 digital images from In Style Stamps. The challenge ends on July 22nd and the winner will be announced on Friday, July 23. I hope my friends will play along with us.
