Twinkling Tuesday: Criss-Crossed!

Hey everyone!

I am SO excited to bring you our FIRST Twinkling Tuesday sketch featuring our new "Twinkle Team"???? Hooray!

This was so much fun to see my DD's vision come to life...even though she just about STUMPED me w/ this sketch! Without further adieu, I am proud to bring you the Twinkle Team's first creations, based on this sketch:
Can you believe her?

I just about lost it when I saw this one LOL! I'm not really great with the whole criss-cross thing, and I think a few of my fellow team members felt the same, but WAIT until you see their fabulous work! I was BEYOND impressed, and I know that Madelynn will be too! Sooooo, without further adieu, I introduce to you the Twinkle Team:


BONNIE totally rocked this sketch with her "happy cluckin' birthday" card. I recently sent her a link to this set, knowing that her blog is called The Lucky Clucker LOL...but, I should have known she already had it! Seriously, HOW cute is that distressed look combined w/ the shabby chic buttons and ribbon? I LOVE it!
CASSIE created this heart-warming beauty with this really pretty set from Stampin up! I {heart} the little pearls she used both in the heart and on the sides! One of my fave embellishments of all time! I also really like the background script and the warm and toasty colors make me want hot chocolate!
CHRISTI came up with this ADORABLE Sarah Kay card and I love that soft, pretty ribbon. Look how wonderfully the image is colored...and pretty as can be in purple!


DANNI lasso'ed up the fun with this cute cowgirl image and gingham DP. Makes me long to be in the south...where it's MUCH warmer, I'm sure!!! I am LOVING the red boots, too! Reminds me of that Shania Twain song heh heh...

DEBBIE "elfed herself" using this cutie from Close to My Heart stamps. I am loving his sparkly little hat and the Christmas-y ribbon! Perhaps DD will see this and wonder if this same little elf has been spying on her to find out if she's been naughty...or nice.... good thing for her she's been nice because I happen to know that Santa has QUITE the stash for her... ;)

JAMI created total cuteness with the dapper Hello Ian stamp from Pink Poison! LOVE him! I love the embossed cardstock and the beautiful color combo of blue/brown...one of my faves as you guys know. I love how she colored the hat, too!
JANNA aka "the Sketch Queen" created a beautiful winter wonderland scene indeed with this adorable image and maginificent coloring! I LOVE that shimmery DP and the snowflakes, too! So pretty!

JEN shimmers(z) and shines with this Pretty, Pretty Princess Anya and in all my favorite colors, too :) I do not have this Anya yet but I know when DD sees it, it's going to be asked for immediately. Got NO problem with that! Love it!

JESSICA (oh wait, that's ME!) had the best of times and the worst of times making this card LOL! I just got some amazing cardstock and papers from my sweet friend and Prettie Mama, Christie, and when I saw this butterfly ribbon she also sent me, I knew what had to be done! I couldn't wait to bust out my new Alice in Paris from Stamping Bella to create this card...and went a little nuts myself w/ the embellies :D I hope you guys like it! Sentiment is from the Little Paper Shop's A Dream.

Kimmie amazes me with her Copic talents too! I just love all the different shades of purple...look at the shading she did, even right down to Tilda's shoes! SO attentive to detail! Lovin' the purple and that Cloud 9 DP is one of my faves, too! So cute!


REBECCA wasn't monkey-in around when she came up with this cuteness! And in my favorite color! So cute how his little tail wraps around the ribbon, isn't it? Um, and did you SEE there is a butterfly in this card? Gotta love it!

TAYLOR created this gorgeous card using her new Pink Papery Studios digi-stamps...I have a pretty fun announcement about the on Wed. actually, so stay tuned tomorrow! I am LOVING the bottlecap, too! Such a great embellie, isn't it? I'm digging the green chair, too...and love the image of the coffee clutched in hand since we've gotten alot of quality "girl chat" in this week, my with my coffee and Taylor with her tea. Cheers!

Seriously, HOW great are these? I'm so excited and can't WAIT to see what you come up with this week!

I know it's Christmas, but if you find yourself needing to relax and care to play along, just make sure you leave a comment on this post and upload your card to SCS/PCP with keyword MTTSC2 so we can all ooooh and ahhhh together! No time limit this week either :)

Stay tuned for some blog candy w/ next week's sketch...and hey, have a VERY Twinkling Tuesday everyone!

Hugs,
Jess :)
