Joan's Garden Challenge


This week at Joan's the challenge is to make a quick Christmas card. Perhaps using dies, one stamp or just something quick.
The hardest part of the card for me is always the design and what paper to use. This paper and design was in my brain for weeks and I had no time to get it out! Finally here is my chance. I hid in my craft room Sunday morning while my husband was on puppy duty.
I was able to complete two challenges.
For this one I used my Spellbinders Poinsettia die and cuttle bug embossing folder called Rebecca. I sanded the dp a bit and stamped with my favorite vintage looking sentiment and embossed in gold. Added two store bought leaves and it's done.
I'm still working on my tags for the kids gifts. Tree is finally finished and I purchased my last gifts this morning. I still have to wrap. I don't really bake anymore(because I will then eat it). Have to purchase the turkey on Tuesday to defrost and cook on Saturday.
I hope everyone's holiday is safe and wonderful.
