Christmas Cardinal


Hi peeps!  A Christmas card for you today, for four challenges!  I loosely used the Paper Craft Crew's sketch for this week, and the theme from Merry Monday is to use a bird:

Paper Craft Crew Sketch 216! PCC216 You are invited to play along with this weeks sketch. Open to ANY products. www.papercraftcrew.com

Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration's challenge is to use washi tape, and the Christmas Card Challenge has an  "Anything Goes" challenge!  So here we go:


This cardinal image is an Itty Bitty stamp from Unity.  It was stamped in Real Red on the same paper as the background DSP, which is from Kaisercraft's Silver Bells 6x6 pad.   I added some washi from my stash (very old!), some Tim Holtz holly leaves diecut from silver glimmer paper and a sentiment from Sweet & Sassy stamped in Smoky Slate:


Another card for my stash!

And another batch of goodies from the giant Halloween box...some REALLY COOL shaker stickers (Grammy might have to confiscate these for herself!):


A fun little glow-in-the-dark ghost hand sanitizer:


and sour patch pumpkins, which she shared with all her Sunday School class!


Thanks for popping in today!
