I've done it, I've done it, I've done it! I have made a Christmas card - in September!
I have been patting myself on the back all day.
This week over Sweet Stampin' we are having a Simply Sentimental challenge. That means that we would like to see a sentiment as the focal point on your card. You may include another image as well, as long as the sentiment is the feature. Our sponsor is Stamp and Create and they have a $20 gift voucher to give away as well as Joanna Sheen with a voucher for a lucky monthly winner.
I do have to confess though, that I didn't intend to make a Christmas card at all.
I went hunting through a box of stamps hoping to find some big and bold writing. I found a stamp and inked it up in a nice chocolate brown and embossed it in clear embossing powder (cause I had in mind some paper to use).
I chose the spellbinders die that suited it and then .... I read the words. You are probably wondering how I can get to that stage of a card and not realise what the words say. Obviously, quite easily.
So then it was a mad hunt to search out some Christmas paper - to match that brown (from the year before last I think), some glitter card, a bit of bling and hey presto! Christmas in September.
