How About Some Christmas


We're through the HOT 4th of July and I thought for the CCEE Stampers challenge to use three circles anywhere on your card, a Christmas card would be in order. Thanks to Lois for this challenge.

I'm using a mix of scrap ribbons behind my Spellbinders Blossom die cut. I don't know the name of my stamp but I think it came from one of the barrels of stamps you can purchase at Hobby Lobby.

The paper is from PapertreyInk-Bitty Dot Basics. My Sis gave me a large box of die cuts some years ago and I thought the snowman would be cute used on my card. She picked up this box of die cuts at an after Christmas sale at Michaels Arts and Crafts. Thanks, Sis.

So, this is a fun challenge, don't you think? Come along...we would love to see your card/project.

I see you and I were on the same page with thoughts of Christmas! I love how you used your ribbon scraps with this die. I have more ribbon than I need (or use), so this is an inspiring idea you've given me. Cute card, Benz!!

Truly, I am trying to think cool weather and Christmas - but I just can't get past our 104 degree temp. right now. Although, your pretty Christmas card does help me imagine a cool Christmas - as your card is so, so adorable!
