Mid week already, love that. It is also time for a new challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches.  This is today's sketch. Last challenge had some amazing cards, love all that inspiration.

I am trying to get some ideas for this years Christmas cards, I love this DP and brought a good number of sheets so I though I would see what I could come up with. I used a holly die cut embossed with clear embossing powder as my shape.

Stop on over at my sweet sisters blog, Barb completed all the challenges for 365 card challenge last week AND she also is a spotlight designer... well done Sis.

Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Designer Paper- Memory Box, Slice, Magenta Crafty Individuals-Christmas, misc glitter dots, Candy Cane Stickles, Cuttlebug embossing folder.



  1. Very pretty Christmas card - love the holly accents! So classy!

  2. You make me blush Sis - thanks so much. You're always such a huge encouragement to me.

    And look at YOU - another very beautiful card, if your house decor and food is as elegant I'm coming to your house. Well, except for the ferries bit and my MIL would never forgive me not being there. We will figure out a compromise I'm sure *wink*
