I had a few minutes to stamp yesterday and saw this wonderful sketch from Amy for Freshly Made Sketches:

I probably could make a hundred cards using all the little scraps I have sitting around!  I made another Christmas card….just can’t get out of the spirit just yet!  So here we go:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings FMS117 Stampin Christmas

The scraps are from Lilybee’s Jingle line; I used some retired pleated SU ribbon, and a sentiment from a retired Cornish Heritage Farms Christmas set in Cherry Cobbler.  Card base is Naturals White.  The flourish is from Everything Eleanor, stamped in Soft Sky.  I added a few tiny little glimmer paper snowflakes to add just a little sparkle! 

The Paper Players are taking a couple weeks off, so I won’t be back until Monday, when I will have a Merry Monday card!  Meanwhile, check out Cassidy and Grampy playing with an old Lotto set that is probably from the 30s or 40s. but they’re using it to build a couple of walls (my little engineers!):





Just excuse the junk on the table, LOL!

Adorable from start to finish, as always, LeAnne! I love the card so much and I love that they built a wall to look like a Christmas tree!! I wish you and your family the happiest of holidays!! Holly hugs, Darnell

Absolutely gorgeous LeAnne - don't you love it when you can use up bits of paper laying around! Love the family pics too!

Looks like we had a similar idea with those flourishes LeAnne! Love how you've combined all those scraps together and the little snowflakes are such a lovely detail. Hope you have a great Christmas!

Love the background & pleated ribbon--fabulous card! Such cute pictures--thanks for sharing!

Colleen Dietrich said...

What a pretty mix of papers you've put together for these banners, LeAnne!

Yes, can't wait for the colder weather to return. This warm, rainy mess ain't Christmas to me!

Merry Christmas, my friend! Enjoy your break. :)
