Christmas Stamping All Year Long

Hi everyone.. I have a quick post today.. we're closing in on tax time and that means fun, fun, fun here at the Wired Angel's homestead!! (Yeah, right!! - I'd rather have a root canal minus the anesthesia).

Every Friday it's time for the Christmas Stamping All Year Long (CSAYL) challenge. Check out what the DT has put together using this color combo.. and the cool thing is that you can use any image from any company to play along.

This week our hostess is Patty and her challenge is for us to make a Christmas card with violet (purple, lilac), ivory and gold. At first I really pondered this. But this darling snowman digi image from Sassy Cheryl's was just perfect for this project and he really came through for me.


I cut this image using a Nesties die but left his little carrot nose outside of the die and this technique accents it a bit.  Here's a closer look.



I've got so many Christmas cards ready for the holidays.. I promise myself that I will have a stress-free holiday with cards and little papercrafted gift items ready.

Thanks for stopping by today... I appreciate you taking the time and I love your comments. 'Til next time, have fun coloring, and be safe in all you do.
