It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas! Give-A-Way Reminder!!!

Good morning everyone!  Hope you slept well and are ready for the day...I have been up all night, yea...I know I Know.  I guess since I have had 3-4 nights of peaceful sleep I was due a night of no sleep.
I have been a busy bee though.  Yesterday I was sent an email that said I was selected to partake in Michael's online training course to provide me with the necessary information and skills to teach the Spotted Canary School program in their stores!!!  When I complete the training I will become a Certified Scrapbook Instructor and will be authorized to teach Spotted Canary School.  I am also being trained on some Martha Stewart items as well.  I am super excited!!!  
I started last night and completed one whole section and received 3 "100%" for the 3 quizzes I took.  So I am off to a great start if I say so myself.
I also created two cards last night as well as a blank scrapbook page.  Blank because I intend to sell it at A Sweet Life shop.  They requested some scrapbook pages from me.  So this is the first one.  Let me say real quick that it's a little different to create a page that you do not put your own pictures on.  But still just as fun! So here is my first blank page titled "Here Comes Santa Claus":
I used 12 x 12 red cardstock, DCWV patterned paper from the  "Christmas & Winter Stack", some vintage lace, snowflakes are Bazzill Basics Paper "Just the Edge" cardstock strips, Santa and deer are Jolee's Boutique from EK Success, journal tag from Maya Road, stickers from Webster's Storytellers, and red ribbon from Whimsy Cottage.
Whewww...that's a lot of different product!

I made two cards, but had sealed one up before I took a picture of it...opps!
But here is the other card called "Fun Snowmen":
In the second picture here you can really see the glistening of the Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue ink.  I used a Stampabilities background stamp called "Swirls & Curls", Kraft paper as the base, Recollections patterned paper from "Bright and Jolly" collection, ribbon from Michael's, snowmen from Jolee's Boutique from EK Success, Stamp from CardzTV set Home for Christmas, white cardstock & Copic Multi-liner black pen for the faux stitching.

I really hope you enjoyed these.  Thank you all again for stopping by!  Please do not forget about the Give-A-Way here on my blog.  It ends this Friday and the winner will be announced on the 14th, Monday.  So sign up & tell your friends about it.  A  brand new Yudu Cardshop is up for grabs!

Take care everyone and have a great day!
