A New Year

Today I begin another 6 months as a member of the Christmas Card Challenges Design Team. I'm thrilled to have been asked to stay on for another "term" for several reasons. First, I love making Christmas cards and this gives me an incentive to get a huge head start on my cards for 2014; second, I love the gals that are on the DT with me . . . they've been SO encouraging and supportive; and third, I'm even more happy that they found me worthy to stay on for another term.
The challenge this week is No Stamping. Yup, that was a tough one for me, since I love all stamps: digi, rubber or clear/acrylic. And, I felt no stamps meant no sentiments either. UGH!! Me without something to say . . . hardly (I know you were all thinking it, so it had to be said).
I used an embossing folder and my Sizzix ornament die for this card. I added a bit of gold twine and red vellum to finish off the look. Very quick and easy and I'm happy with the look. . . . hmmm, maybe I like "No Stamping" afterall.

Stop by the Christmas Card Challenges blog to see what the other DT members have created. I'd love to see your card designs with "No Stamping."

  1. It always feels strange when I make a card without stamping, too. :) This one's a beauty, Heather! Glad you get to stay on a team you enjoy so much, too.


Thank you for commenting. Your words of encouragement keep me 'crafting.'
