My plan was to make at least one Christmas card a week. Umm, yeah ... The plan quite failed. *ooops* But luckily I'm still a LITTLE bit more organized as I was last year and am not leaving everything til the last minute.
You know the feeling when you are searching for something and find completely different thing that you have already forgotten it was there? This happened to me. The other day I was searching for something in my cabinet, and I found a whole lot of music sheets. They must have been there for a while. They are from waaaaaaaay back when I was still going to music school. I thought about tossing them, but then it occured to me that they would be great for card making. This one was actually white, but I colored it with Tim Holtz's Brushed corduroy distress ink. Then I took a piece of white cardstock and also colored it with the same distress ink. Over it I stamped with Single snowflake stamp from Stampabilities. The lovely Santa stamp is one of my favourite Christmas stamps. It is Penny Johnson's stamp from Stampavie. From the red cardstock I cut stars which I drew freehand and decorated their edges with red glitter glue. The ribbons are from my stash.
I'd like to enter this card to following challenges:
Creative craft challenges: Recycling (I used an oldmusic sheet)
Digi doodle shop's best: Anything goes
Hanna and friends: Sketch
Jingle belles: No designer paper
Christmas stampin' all year long: Favourite holiday image
Really reasonable ribbon: Double dutch - use two ribbons, laces or trims
