Celebrate the season

Hi Folks…

Christmas is coming – I’m so happy – I love Christmas, it’s easily one of my favorite holidays. Presents, food, family, my birthday, my kid’s birthday (yup – we all have our birthdays 1 after another in consecutive weeks/days) – what’s not to love!

It’s also time to celebrate the season at Tuesday Throwdown too. Today’s challenge is to make a card that celebrates the season – Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Winter Solstice … you get the idea.

Our sponsor this week is Robyn’s Fetish Digital Stamps.

Here is my Christmas card:

Papers are from Authentique Paper, the corner holly image is from Robyn’s Fetish, Sentiment is from Justrite Stamps.

I choose the papers for this card when I saw the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger title “Deck the halls” – the music and the decorations on the papers. Then I saw those big giant baubles on the inspiration photo here:

Don’t those berries on the mistletoe look like those big baubles? Then I added the framed sentiment to my mantle – oh wait, I guess I got carried away decorating my house card. The rest as they say is history!

Fa la la … Have a Holly Jolly Holiday season!!

    Beautiful, Steph! Love the way you combined the holly image and the sentiment. Fabulous fussy cutting! Your dp choice is perfect! I have that pad of papers — maybe it’s time to dig it out and use some of it. :-D
