Christmas Stampin All Year Long Card Set Challenge #4 - 08-27-09


Good Morning, Friends! Well it that time again. ..it's Christmas Stampin All Year Long Card Set challenge time! Yup! The challenge is to follow a sketch and create 3 or more holiday or celebration card. Stop by Christmas Stampin All Year Long and play along

I decided to create a Christmas card set this time around. Hey. . I didn't use any designer paper! LOL! It's been a while since I did this. I always rely on designer paper to help create a nice background for my card but I went with stamping the background this time around. I even heat embossed the Christmas tree but you can't really tell in the photo that it's embossed. To bring a bit of sparkle to the card, I also added Stickles glitter throughout the card.

Anyway. . .play along and get your Christmas cards or holiday cards out of the way!!









One more day and my daughter will be done with summer school!!! I'll get my mornings and part of my afternoon back for at least 3 weeks and not only am I hoping to get caught up on life but also my blurfing, commenting, and crafting.

I heard today and the next few days will in the 100s . . .it's going to be hot, hot, hot. Ugggh! That's too hot as far as I'm concerned. I wish the weather could stay in the 80s. How is the weather where you're at? Hot too? If not, lucky you!

I'll add the card recipe when I get home. . .I'm not in my craft room so I can't tell you the name of this Stampin Up stamp set.

Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful day.

The tree alone is beautiful why did I have to search for the tree among so much. It was too busy, just like 99% of your cards!
