Christmas Card Challenge #46

This week’s Christmas Card Challenge is to use stickers on your cards.  You don’t have to follow the challenge, we just want to see Christmas or winter holiday cards.  It is so nice to have my cards done and not have to rush in December.

At first I was having a hard time with this challenge, I don’t normally use or buy stickers.  Then I remembered some peel off’s I have had in my stash for a few years now!  I stuck them onto some patterned paper and cut them out and popped them up with pop dots.

Paper: Bazzill, Echo Park  Stamp: Verve Stamps  Ink: VersaFine  Accessories: Twine, Peel Off’s, Rhinestones.

There is also a design team call going on right now, you can check out all the details on the CCC blog!

Have a great Sunday!

Paper: Bazzill  Stamps: Impression Obsession, Verve Sentiment  Ink: Distress Ink, Copic markers  Accessories: Glitter Ritz glitter, Rhinestones, Glossy Accents.

It is my oldest baby’s 16th birthday today!  I can not believe he is old enough to drive now! I will have his card to share later in the week.  The house will be FULL of kids later today, wish me luck!  LOL  I hope you all have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!
