12 Days of Christmas S&S Style - Day 1

Wow!  It's been ::ahem:: a few months since I posted ANYTHING.  When I signed up for the Challenge, I hadn't touched my stamps & paper arts supplies for awhile, so if it looks lame mea culpa. hahaha.  This is a card I'm making for my DD#2 Becca, who's 19, still at home, and has always been my "different" & "dark" child (she's like her Mom).   I used one of Simply Betty Stamps' digi Emo Halloween stamps colored with Prismacolor pencils, a few Susan Branch stickers (don't judge me ), wire snowflakes from Making Memories.  One of my personal challenges this season is to use what I have, more about that later.  I'm excited to be a part of this group of Jolly Bloggers, it will be an adventure!!!!  ttfn!
