Merry Monday on Friday!

This week has been extremely busy for me and I just found time to stamp today!! I'm suppose to be creating 5 Christmas cards each month so I don't have that panic come December. Well here it is halfway through the month and I'm just now making the first Christmas card for 2013! I'd better get a move on!

I used this week's sketch design by Lesley at Always Playing with Paper. I started with a white card base, then added a panel of Old Olive card stock that was embossed with the CB snowflakes folder.The Cardinal on a Branch was stamped with Memento Black ink on white, colored with copics, die cut and layered on a Real Red lacy circle. The Christmas Blessings sentiment was stamped in Memento Black and die cut with a Nestie banner die. I punched some Real Red flowers and added an olive rhinestone to finish the design. I really like the way this turned out.

This is also for the Free For All challenge at Split Coast Stampers today.

Thanks for stopping by.

Until next time,
