Hello everyone!  It is Wednesday, so that must mean it is time for a new challenge at the Crafty Gals Corner!  These weeks are flying by and I am not ready for Christmas yet!  I best get a move on.  We have made it so easy for you this month.  Every challenge in December is anything goes!  Super easy to play along. =)

This week I used Amber Yule Maiden from Faery Ink and colored her with Copics.  I just love the vintage feel of this image!  I am not a fan of the traditional red and green, so I tend to gravitate toward the darker shades of these colors.  I think they are perfect for this stamp.  I cut the holly leaves using a Silhouette cut file to add to the embellishments.  I used clear Wink of Stella on the snowflakes and holly berries, but it is so hard to capture that sparkle in a picture!

Our sponsor this week is Faery Ink and you have the chance to win three images from the shop.  You better make your list now, because it will be so hard to narrow it down to three!  Click the badge below to pop over to the shop.

I can't wait to see what you create!

Whimsy Stamps has a holiday theme for their challenge.  Amber is going to pop by and celebrate the Yuletide in that challenge.

A Snowflake's Promise has a winter/Christmas theme.  Amber is going to celebrate the festivities in the challenge.

Die Cuttin Divas has a tic tac toe challenge.  Amber is going to spread Yuletide cheer and show off her buttons, snowflakes, and ribbon.

Get Creative Challenges has a holidays theme.  Amber is going to visit the challenge and spread some holiday cheer.

Simon Says Stamp has a Holly Jolly challenge.  Amber is wearing holly in her hair and feels jolly, so she will visit the challenge.
