Christmas is Love


Hi friends!!! Today’s card is my next Guest Designer card for Stacey’s Curtain Call Colour challenge this week :)  When I saw the 2 greens, I thought of my pti Christmas tree die :) I used some SU Christmas designer paper from a few years ago.  I love the subtle texture of the image on it.  Then I thought of my favourite go-to sketch :)   I knew I would be using it at least once this month!! LOL  I added silver cording to the button ornaments to add some glitter and spruce up the tree along with the ‘buttons and bling’  hehehe.  This little sentiment is from the SU set Contempo Christmas and is one of the reasons I bought the set (along with its fabulous ornament stamp!).  I hope you’ll come over and check out the challenge this week…make a Christmas card and you’ll have one more made!! 

The Curtain Call Crew has samples to show you today, too, so make sure you stop by to see:

Okay, one last thing to show you before I sign off.  I was at our Chapters Bookstore last week and picked up this fun little white board for my computer desk.  I use too many sticky notes and thought it would put an end to that.  It comes with a little magnet as well, so I hung a tag on it as it’s hard to see. My to-do list is much longer, but you get the idea :)  Isn’t it adorable?  Hmm, these two things are done so I can put a check beside them now!!  Have a lovely Sunday!!

Maureen this is adorable! I love the die for the tree. But question for you: the background lined paper is that DSP or do you have a library card stamp? I thought you had something like this, can you tell me where you got it if you do? Thanks!
