"Play Along Monday's" Challenge #18 - Favourite Christmas Stamp AND A Giveaway!

Hello and thanks for stopping by! I'm a day late, but here's this week's challenge and a little surprise! First off, a big thank you to all who come and play along whenever they can. I know it's a busy time of year, so I appreciate you coming out and trying to play along! This week's challenge is a simple one and you likely have it sitting out already as you work on your Christmas cards, or close at hand. I'd love to see everyone's favourite Christmas stamp. That's it!! But here's the surprise!! This week I also have a little something I'd love to give all you have to do is play along AND leave a comment telling me what your favourite family Christmas tradition is. Lucky winner will be chosen by and will win CTMH "Holiday Warmth" Christmas stamp set! Winner will be announced with next Monday's challenge!

For this week's card, I actually used the photo of my cousin, Nancy's, as we all did the same one at a class on Saturday and I haven't photographed mine yet. The stamp is from SU! and it's called Dasher and this is where we learned all about Shimmer Paint!!! See all that glitter? That's shimmer paint. Catherine Black told us to mix 1 oz rubbing alcohol to 10 (eye)drops shimmer paint in a little spray bottle (dollar store) and voila!! And it is NICE!
So, go find those stamps and let's see YOUR creation! Don't forget to leave me a comment and good luck! Happy crafting!
