Merry Monday #187 and HLS Christmas

You thought we were through with Christmas cards didn't you?  Well, we're not.  There are several challenges that will help you be ahead of the game when it's time to send out those cards again.  One of them is Merry Monday.  This week their challenge is to use plaid.  Yay!  One of my favorite fabrics.  I mean papers. ;)
Recipe: Old plaid paper,  LF stitched rectangles, a holly die from Poppystamps, Pine Feather cs, a sentiment from PTI, and a little bling for berries.  I don't usually use bling but I though this card called for it.

This next card is for the January Happy Little Stampers challenge - Jingle. This one took a while to conjure up because I didn't think I had any bell stamps or dies.  I ran across a tiny one from E by E but wondered what else I could put with it to fill out a card.  Then I spied a stamped ribbon from Avery Elle that I did when Michele visited and it all fell into place.
You can call this an embossed card.  Red for the ribbon and silver for the bells and HLS sentiment.

I'm so glad you stopped by.  Have a great weekend.

  8. I'm crushing all over your plaid card, made all the more impressive with the white panel and holly. This could be your 'go to' card for Christmas; so pretty! And your jingle bells/bow: another winning combination!
