So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Tis the Season to Rejoice

This is for Speedy the Cat's Challenge ... Week 86 ... Make a Christmas card! Well this is certainly that time of the year! :-) I sure hope you can enter the challenge this week..December 17-23...you probably have a Christmas card you created this year! You can win the new Ice and Snow stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company. Good luck!  (Here is the website)

I used the MFP, Festive Wreath mini set and Greetings of the Season sentiments. I decided to do this wreath with Sakura glitter pens, colored pencils and Stickles. I used the Holly Cuttlebug folder to emboss the dk. green cs from MFP and a little gold Recollections dp. The wreath was cut out with Spellbinders Petite Scalloped Circles large and Nesting circles. I added the finishing dots of Stickles after it was cut out.

The ribbon tag trio 3 by Spellbinders was used for the sentiment with some ribbon added and stamped in Memento Cottage Ivy and sponged with Ladybug Red Memento. I added some pearls, jingle bell brad, Happy Holidays tag and gold bow. The inside is just a sentiment with some pearls added on. Unfortunately the glare of the camera is NOT good on this one! Hopefully next time....will be MUCH better!

Merry Christmas to you!


Inside..just a sentiment
