28 August 2012


Hi everyone,


How is the week going?  Mine is going well but I am starting to wonder where the year is disappearing too.  In a few days it will be September and Christmas will be here before we know it.


How about starting your Christmas cards early ?  Yes well let me tell you what our new challenge is at Holly Jolly


The challenge this week is hosted by Judy and it is Santa’s Reindeers. 


I have used the retiring Dasher stamp which will no longer be available after 31 August this year.


To me Dasher’s antlers just scream ‘bling’, so of course I added ‘bling’.


The base card is Early Espresso and the paper is from the new Holiday Catalogue which starts on 1 September.  The paper is called Candlelight Christmas Speciality DSP.


My card layout is inspired by the current sketch at Merry Monday Challenges.  The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set and layered on Lucky Limeade cardstock which is punched out using the Modern Label punch.


Here is my card…





Stamp set: Dasher, Teeny Tiny Sentiments

Card: Early Espresso, Natural Ivory, Luck Limeade
Ink: Real Red, Early Espresso

Accessories:  Modern Label Punch, Real Red Retired Ribbon, Word Window Punch, Candlelight Christmas Speciality DSP, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive



Now don’t you love this paper?  I think it makes a great background.


I would like to submit this card to the following challenges:


Merry Monday Challenges - Sketch

Winter Wonderland Challenge – Red & Green

A Gem of A Challenge – Animal or Teddies



Enjoy the rest of the week and we hope to see you over at Holly Jolly…. Meg
