I know this is early for Christmas but I am loving this new set from the Holiday Mini. I can see making many things with these stamps. Christmas is my favorite time of year and I am like a child when it comes to gifts and decorations. I have a huge 7 foot flocked tree and each year I buy more baubles and trinkets to adorn it with. I can't resist Old World Santa's and Father Christmas ornaments or dolls. I have a beautiful ceramic sleigh pulled by 2 white horses with a man and woman dressed in 1800 clothing riding in it and I keep it out year round. If I lived alone I would have a hard time not leaving my Christmas decorations and tree up all year. Well, on with the card.

This card is for the challenge over on Just Us Girls blog, (jugs 45). This was a wonderful sketch to work with and I could just see Christmas all over it. Thus I got to use that gorgeous Cherry Cobbler cardstock and ink. This is becoming my favorite color.

Stamp Set: Bells and Boughs from the Holiday mini.

Cardstock: Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla

Ink: Cherry Cobbler

Accessories: Big Shot with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Scallop Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch, Scallop Border Punch, Hand held 1/16" punch, Very Vanilla 5/8" Satin Ribbon.Mini glue dots and stampin' dimensionals.

Hope you like this as much as I do. I think it might become my Christmas cards for this year.

Thanks for stoppin in!

Have a Blessed night!
