We Wish You a Merry Christmas...

Happy Friday, everyone! It's Kathy here, sitting in for Anne while she's on some well-earned time away.

Today I have a holiday card to share using papers from the new 'Twas the Night paper pad, and a wavy sentiment from the recently-released Set 75, Christmas Wishes sentiment stamp set:




It was fun mixing the more casual look of these papers with more formal die cuts and lots of glittery accents! If you'd like to see more photos and a description of some of the details, including a complete supply list, I have them posted on my blog today.

There's still time for you to enter this month's Pretty Papers challenge, and a chance to win one of three great prizes. Join in on the fun!

I hope you'll stop by tomorrow, when Gretha will be sitting in and sharing one of her beautiful creations with you.  Until then, have a wonderful day!

  29. So I look at this card and do all the oooh's and aaaah's and look close at it and realize: there is no little kid stamp on this card and I adore this card! I think this is one of the few cards I've seen that I think is totally fantastic and there's no LOTV little person image on it! This is truly outstanding and a gorgeous card. I love the rough edges on the paper and the way you added white paint. The wavy sentiment is awesome and I'm going to order the set. Thanks so much for sharing this card...it opened my eyes to the fact that I don't have to color up an image for EVERY card I make. Hugs, Gail
