Christmas 3D Card For Bingo With Tammy's Scrapin Corner

Hi to all my fellow crafters/follower/friends.  It has been cold here in Southern California; which I am not use to after being spoiled with such fabulous weather for the 13 years I have been here.  30's feels really cold after you acclimate to 50's and 60's.  My family had ice and snow in MO and their weather is much colder than ours.  My mom will be here January 13th to spend two months with us. I am looking forward to our time together.  We always have a lot of fun and we eat a lot.  LOL.

Christmas is here again!!  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you.  I hope you have a fabulous time with your family and friends.  Try to enjoy the season and remember the real meaning of Christmas.  Be sure to say thank you to everyone and be cheerful when shopping.  It is a stressful and sad time of year for many; especially those who have lost loved ones so close to the holidays.  My husband and his family lost their father and I lost a sweet man who was my father-in-law. My heart goes out to the people who lost their children and families through that shooting in Connecticut.  I am sure it is a sad time for them. 

Come join us for another great week for Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #42 - Bingo.  Be sure to check out the wonderful creations by the other members of the DT.  Our sponsors this week are Bugaboo Stamps and Doodle Dragons.  Check out their fantastic selection of digital stamps.  I chose "Snowglobe - Ava" from Bugaboo Stamps for another Christmas cards.  I created my first 3D card by using a tutorial from Desire at Doing Life.  This link takes you to her tutorials.  Scroll down to Sept 3 "Maybe" for the 3D tutorial.  Check out all her wonderful creations as well as her tutorials.  For Bingo - I chose Sparkle, Image and Swirls.

If you would like to be a Guest Designer, put GDT after your name when you enter. Pick and choose from our Bingo board for items you want to use on your card and then enter it at Tammy's Scrapin Corner.

Die cuts - Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge
