From Halloween yesterday to a Christmas card today....
I wanted to play along at Merry Mondays again this week where the challenge is to make the sentiment the focal point. I got an Honourable Mention for my card last week which was a great surprise :)
I gold embossed one of the new Tim Holtz Christmas sentiments in gold and die cut with a Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle. I inked the edges with Antique Linen and framed the sentiment with the fab pine cone stamps and dies from Waltzingmouse Stamps.
I will also join in at Addicted to Stamps and More which has a holiday theme for its current challenge.
Finally, I shall link up at the Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge which has a Christmas theme.
It is great to be ahead with my Christmas cards for a change - if I can make a few a week from here on I should be just about ok this year :)
Thanks so much for stopping by and your kind comments.
Bye for now,
Gorgeous Christmas card! The Antique Linen edging really makes the card pop. Thanks so much for joining us at Merry Monday.ReplyDelete

Congrats on your well deserved Honorable Mention, Sarah! Another gorgeous card, too! I love how you used gold EP for your sentiment and the pine cones are such a perfect way to frame it out!
