Christmas Stampin All Year Long Challenge #21

Hi Friends!! It's Monday. . .and what does Monday mean? It's Christmas Stampin' All Year Long Challenge time again! Yup! We're on challenge #21 and Debbie of The Paper Garden is hosting our challenge this week! She came up with a fun challenge this week!!

The challenge this week is to use eyelets on your card. Find a creative way to use eyelets!! How fun!


I have tons of eyelets. There was a time when I used eyelets all the time but I rarely do now so this challenge is great. I get to use the eyelets I've been storing for years! LOL!

I decided to use the sketch I provided for the challenge although it's not part of the challenge. The sketch is provided to help those who prefer using sketches.

I colored the Christmas tree with my Copic Markers and I added the eyelets to parts of the image that had ornaments.

I'm going to make this post short! I actually have nothing to say today! LOL!

Hope you'll play along this week! Christmas is right around the corner. I think I'm going to start my Christmas shopping this month and even wrap the gifts. It's not as fun as shopping during Christmas but that's okay. . .I think we're going on a vacation this Christmas so I better start shopping now!
