Christmas Birds


Woohoo!  I found out yesterday that this card and this card both won their challenges!  Happy dance!  And  doing a jig because Blogger is fixed!  Now, on to today’s card! 

The May challenge at Christmas Cards All Year Round was this sketch:

And here’s my card:


The weather has been temptingly nice this week, so I  whipped this CAS card together in a jiffy!  I already had a piece of this vintage DP laying in my stash; the Crafty Secrets image was mounted on a piece of chipboard; and the lace was a lovely gift from my friend Martha.  I added a couple of swirls from Season of Joy, stamped in Versamark and embossed with Heat & Stick powder, then coated them with some vintage MS glitter:


Those little birds got some glitter too:


Woohoo, another card to add to my weekly stash!  Thanks for visiting today!


(Check out the bunny slippers!)

Wonderful Christmas card. I love the colors and the swirls just add that little bit of bing! Great job! I promised myself that all summer I would work on my Christmas cards and I hope I stick to it. But oh how I love the beach!

Such an awesome card and the lace and swirls are really pretty on it! I love it! That bird image is so sweet and very wintery and perfect for Christmas.

Congrats on the wins!
Love and blessings, Martha
