Paper Players 310 Christmas Blessings


Happy Sunday, everyone!  I am back from my vacation and ready to stamp!  I missed everyone!  I have to admit that I did a whole lot of nothin' while on vacation, so I am happy to get back into my craft room!  Nance is our talented hostess today for the Paper Players, and blessedly, she had a wonderful, simple sketch for us!  


I had a few new goodies waiting for me when I got home, so I went to work creating a Christmas card:


I used This Christmas specialty paper and the new set, Christmas Pines, along with its companion thinlits die, Pretty Pines.  I diecut several pine boughs from Garden Green, a bow from Cherry Cobbler and arranged them under my banner, stamped in Cherry Cobbler as well:


I accented it with a little enamel star, too!  And the great thing about these pine boughs is that you can cut them to length!  

The inside was stamped with images and a sentiment from the same set:


The design team has some spectacular samples....they covered a wide range of occasions!  Check them out here:

And we hope you'll play along!  Can't wait to see your creations!

Cassidy starts school tomorrow, sporting a new 'do!  Here she is enjoying a word puzzle (just like her grammy!) while waiting for her breakfast at Perkins!   Enjoy your day!

  12. Ok LeAnne, so I love this card! It inspired me to use this paper in my Holly Berry class next week and I might just have to CASE this card for a future stamp-a-stack! Love Cassidy's new hairdo and hope she has had a great start to the school year. I am so envious of her breakfast at Perkins - this is my most favourite place to eat breakfast when I'm Stateside. Oh and pie - Perkins does great pie too!!!
