TESC134 - Sweetest Holiday Wishes

Hi Friends & Happy Friday!!! Can you believe Christmas is just around the corner? I thought this week's Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge would be the perfect opportunity to make another Christmas card for my holiday stash. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this Gingerbread Man Sizzix die. Isn't he so cute? I paired up this cutie with some more wonderful Echo Park patterned paper. I love all the different colors. So festive! I also added a strip of some Bo Bunny double dot paper too. I am thinking of making something similar to this for this year's Christmas card. It's hard to resist this adorable gingerbread man. Are you ready to play along with us? Taylor will be looking for her Top Crops and it could be you. So play along and have some fun!

Snowmen fall from heaven unassembled

Hi Friends! Happy Friday! I am back today to share will you a card I made using one of my favorite Stampendous products ... Class A' Peel Stickers. They have a variety of different textures and I love all of them! I used the gorgeous Jumbo Snowflakes and Jumbo Snowman in Velvet White for this card. I added some cute mini snowmen in the centers of each snowflake using the Little Snow Scarf and Little Snow Hat cling stamps. I love how the bright white snowflakes pop against the red paper. I used a small velvet snowflake for the same pop against the green and to bring out the Heavenly Snowmen sentiment. Hope you enjoyed today's card!

Thanks for visiting and Have a great day!
