Tis the season!


Hi everybody!

I do love Christmas, and also making Christmas cards. If you would look at my stamp collection, I have more holiday stamps than any other. So it's no surprise that I enjoy participating in Christmas card challenges. Merry Monday is always a fun one, and such a great way to start the week out.

This week it's REALLY an interesting challenge,too......BINGO!


My card fits the diagonal of red,twine, and emboss. 

Join in the fun over at Merry Monday!

Love these trees, Laurie! And the twine wrapped behind them keeps with the rustic feel! Wish you lived closer too. Couldn't we have some fun stamping together! BTW Glad you shared this with us at Merry Monday!

Laurie, your card feels so north country cabin and yet is so fabulously CAS. I absolutely love it.
So glad you joined us at Merry Monday this week

LOL! I think I have a disproportionate number of Christmas stamps too! I love the rustic, homespun look of your card. The die cut trees are fantastic! Thanks for joining us at Merry Monday!
