Digi Doodle Shop is the results of a mother and daughter’s love for the arts and crafts.  It was started a little over 3 years ago with a little more than 100 stamps, and has since then grown to almost 500 stamps.  Joy (the mother of this team) designs realistic images, while Judy (aka/daughter) loves the “fun side of life”, and create images with a cartoon flair.  Having these two complimenting styles have enabled

Embossing and Glitter Challlenge #148

The Holidays are really upon us and I hope you're done your shopping because it's time to decorate! 

Let's 'Deck the Halls' with embossing and glitter!  

You can make any style card you like, it does not have to be Christmas, but be sure to use glitter, and heat or dry emboss something on it!   

I am sponsoring this week's challenge with 3 free digital images to the winner from my own shop...

And now for some DT inspiration for you...

Isn't this sweet?  Claire has made a darling Holiday card in pink; perfect for a special little girl!  The embossed snowflakes and bows are beautiful!

I've made a CAS (clean and simple) card for this week's challenge, dry embossing a peaceful holiday scene and adding glitter to the snowflakes and tree. 

Dawn has made such a lovely card with this paisley embossed background! Don't you just love that sweet ruffled ribbon?!

Juelmarie's card is so festive and fun! I love her cheerful colors and that lovely glittered snowflake! 

A beautiful card from Kaos; so elegant! I love the embossed musical note background, and the flourish!

 Doesn't this look like you could hang it on a tree as a perfect ornament?!  What a sweet image and great colors for this festive card!! 

Nana Donna
Donna's card is a shimmery classic! Lovely holly embossing in the background and a beautiful sentiment on the inside!

Peggy's card is a vision in blue! (her favorite color, I know!)  Look at that gorgeous background and flocked trees!  

Thanks for playing with us and next week we will be having a special two week run blog hop!! Don't miss it as there will a few different prizes and winners too! 
Don't forget to leave us a direct link to your creations and use keyword CCCW148 if you upload to online galleries. 
Have fun playing!

What a cool advent calendar our own Jaime created for our enjoyement. The different dps all of original Christmas colors. 

Love the happy fuschia on this card Jenni. The puppy looks so cool in his sparkly fur too. Love that sketch and the beautiful ribbon wrapping the whole scene.

Gotta love this argyle dp with the little gift stickers all in sparkles. What a fun way to add the sentiment too. Cute puppy, I love to see him colored in different colors. Love that twine Donna.

Ah, Lindsey has come up with such style and creativity in the CAS form. Love the beautiful details of  the number coloring as with all the fascinating look of her card!

These little friends sharing one of the pleasures of winter has been a fave of the DT this week! Kathleen has even added a beautiful Swirly Christmas tree in her scene along with other flowery embellishments. 

I see Donelda has made the little couple come out on their own here, with her fine coloring. The gold leaves and little red buds add just the right touch of beauty. 

Love this cute little pup' sitting pretty with all these gifts for it's master I hope. Gotta love Deena's clean style here. The popping papers and sparkly trees made with the same sparkling matting and background cardstock. WOW!

Another sweet version of the advent calendar. What a clever idea to add that lacey doily in the background, along with the pretty poinsettia embellishment. Cool look Rudlis.

and mine...
Peggy has made not just one, but two cards this week! Each beautifully colored and unique! I love the way she  tied baker's twine over the lace ribbon and added a pretty touch with the bow and snowflakes!
