Merry Monday #96

Another Christmas card in the fold.  If I keep it up, which I hope to, I'll have more cards than I'll need come December.  Today's card is for Merry Monday.


I bought this Tim Holtz Alterations die quite some time ago because I love the rustic look of it.


I wanted to do something a little different so I made the card base 4.25 by 4.25 and have the holly over the top edge making it an A2 card.  I inked it all up with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and used an NBUS sentiment from Hero Arts.

I'm awaiting my order from Papertrey Ink and just placed one with Simon Says Stamp.  Where am I going to put all this new stuff?  I have an Ikea DVD rack and all my stamps and dies in DVD holders but one rack just doesn't hold them anymore.  My daughter has two that she can't use and will give me.  I guess I'd better have her ship them.  I should have my head examined but they'd probably just find paper and stamps floating around in ink there, with a few dies thrown in  for good measure.  All I can say is "I'm probably still WAY behind some of the rest of you".  wink wink

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

  2. Very good hamstering, Bobby! This is clever and fantastic! As for how to keep the spread of NBUS under control? When you find out, you'll win the Self-Control Award of the century!! Hugs, Darnell

  4. Very cool Bobby! Love that font on your sentiment as well as your holly branch. I've exercised pretty good self control this year. Had only ordered one set this whole year so far, but broke down and ordered another set and die from Amazon...And I haven't even visited PTI to update my wishlist! Crazy. Great card. Bev
