Custom Digi Papers

Ladies and Gentlemen may I present the greatest idea ever to you?  Susan over at Crafty Chaos Designs has just let me know that she is adding "Personal Paper Packs" to her shop.  What that means is you can email her with colors, styles, shapes or whatever and she will design you your very own Digi Paper, not just 1 or 2 sheets but 6 Digi Papers.  Is that not the most awesome thing ever?  Here are a few samples of what she has done for me.

So hop on over to Crafty Chaos Designs and get your personalized Digi Papers!!!

Challenge #12 "Holiday Wishes For Kids"

Yahoo it's that time again for a new challenge and this one is wonderful. Go on over to the PCI's Challenge blog to check out all the details. This challenge is being sponsored by Digi Doodle Shop and the prize is a $10 gift certificate to Digi Doodles

We would love to Help SAS4KIDS collect cards for this holiday season! If you are able to help with this, they would need to be received by December 1st so that they have time to be dispersed to the hospitals. Please send any cards that you have to the nearest shipping point which can be found on the SAS4KIDS Main Blog!!! 

Send A Smile 4 Kids is a charitable blog created for the purpose of collecting donated handmade cards to be distributed to children while they are inpatient at Children’s Hospitals. Currently the cards received are being donated to two Children’s Hospitals in Wisconsin, two in Iowa, one in South Dakota and two in Canada.   On any given day, there are many children inpatient in these hospitals who would be cheered by a handmade card. At this time we are looking for Christmas holiday cards as well as any holiday or every day cards. 
Please refer to the SAS4Kids blog at for card guidelines and any other details you may need as well as information on their twice monthly challenges.

I fell in love with this vintage looking Santa from Digi Doodles and I just had to color it up. I used Crystal Effects on his boots and the holly berries. The background paper is from Tim Holtz Seasonal collection. All other embelishments are from my stash of who knows where it came from :0) I used Spellbinders Lattice Rectangle and MS corner punch.
Copics used are:
Skin: E000, 00, 95, R 20, 22
Beard: E 40, 42, W 1, 3
