Christmas card again

Hi there! How are you? Enjoying yourself? I sure hope you do! :) Today's the last day off here - tomorrow back to normal. Beginning of May is always great - we get many extra free days. Who would complain?! ;) As you probably guessed, I spent my day crafting. I made the followingcard ...


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)
Jingle belles: No designer paper
Christmas stampin' all year long: Favourite holiday image
Really reasonable ribbon: Double dutch - use two ribbons, laces or trims

  1. This has turned out great and I love the colours...

    I'm so envious of the music paper as I keep thinking I need to go to a charity shop to see if they have any that I can buy to use.

    I hope you'll get your cards made in time for xmas as times flying by all ready.
