Happy Monday, peeps! I snuck in a little stamping time yesterday as I knew I had a funeral today and wouldn’t have time. I lost track of my Christmas card postings, so when I saw the Our Creative Corner Challenge (faces) and the Jingle Belles challenge (softly falling snow), I knew I could combine them for a fun little retro card:
Plus, my CQC teammate Noelle is hosting the Jingle Belles!! So I just had to play! Edited to add: I obviously did not read the challenge ALL THE WAY---I was to use something SOFT on my card---ooops! I will have to withdraw!!
It’s all Stephanie’s fault that I fell in love with these vintage Christmas images when I saw her card here. The only problem is that I don’t know quite whether to stamp them in black and try to color them in, or stamp them in a single color! I opted to stamp my little holiday miss in Baja Breeze, and added some Pink Pirouette for her cheeks. I then stamped the holly in Wild Wasabi and cut it out, glued it over the original, adding some pink pearls to match her cheeks:
Isn’t she sweet? To give her a bit of “grounding” so it didn’t seem as if she was just floating on the page, I stamped the image first in Wild Wasabi on my glittery Christmas paper from My Mind’s Eye, and then mounted my cut-out image a little offset. A greeting from the same set, a little pink ribbon and a snowflake-punched edge finished it off. Oh, and of course, lots of snowy glitter, too!

Dana and I attended a party on Friday night and the hostess wanted us to bring Cassidy (big mistake!). Here are my attempts to capture her in her Halloween finery:
Every bat girl needs her milk, right?!
I’ll just rearrange these for you!
Okay, I’ll play with my own toys!!!
Thanks for visiting today!
