Sandra made a Christmas card with the Simon Says Stamp Inside Christmas Greetings stamp set, and created a wintery scene through the Window & Window Box, where the large Reindeer is prancing in front of.

We have four artists in the Designer Spotlight for the Something Clear Challenge!
#38 Cris G. – Macarena says: What a fabulous stellar card! I love the galactic background with all the stars and milky ways. The colors are so cool and realistic. Lovely shaker project!
#64 Kerstin – Andrea says: This is filled with all sorts of spooktacular textural goodness! What a treat for the eyes! And the fact that a place mat inspired this made me all the more impressed. What an excellent reminder that inspiration can come from anywhere!
