Filled with Sweetness

After a weekend away I felt a pull to my craft room when I returned home. I fell in love with the colours and inspiration photo at Christmas Card Challenges and wanted to play along. I looked everywhere through all of my stamps and cartridges to find candy canes, but I couldn't find any! I decided to use this striped patterned paper instead. I came across a new challenge called Never-Before-Used-Schtuff and am playing along with their Challenge #2: make a Christmas card using stuff you have never used before. To meet this challenge I pulled out a stamp set I had meant to use last season but didn't get around to, along with some ribbon that has been sitting in my craft room forever never having been touched! I also used the Stretch Your Imagination Cricut cartridge to cut out my gingerbread man for the first time...I swear I do use most of my stuff haha, but what a great challenge to make sure that you do :)

All supplies are Close To My Heart:
Paper - Outdoor Denim, Flirty Raspberry, White Daisy, Sparkle & Shine patterned paper;
Ink - Blush, Slate; Stamp set - Very Merry Christmas; Ribbon - Vineyard Berry Wings assortment.
Shape cut from Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.

  1. Your stripey paper is perfect for the candy cane inspiration in the photo, Alli! I love your sediment panel and sweet gingerbread man adorning that awesome ribbon! Your blog is really fun and it's a pleasure to meet you! I very much appreciate that you played in my second NBUS Challenge! We all have those items that get neglected and it feels great to pull them out and use them!! I hope you visit the Playhouse again soon! Hugs, Darnell
