Hi peeps!  It's time for another Try Stampin On Tuesday sketch challenge; again, this month we are focusing on Christmas; the optional technique is paper piercing!  So here's the sketch:

And here is my take on it!  I chose not to do the paper piercing, but I did choose colors that I don't normally use for Christmas!  This is Delightful Dijon, Crumb Cake and gold:

I started by embossing the cardbase with the Woodgrain embossing folder, then added panels from Kaisercraft's Home for Christmas line....the burlap-looking piece is actually paper!  I added some gold glimmer and brushed gold trim, some gold twine, and I heat-embossed a Papertrey sentiment (O Holy Night) in gold embossing powder.

And I stamped the inside with the another sentiment from the same set in Gold Encore sad when SU discontinued that!

So I hope that you'll play along with our can submit your creation on our blog, or why not try out our Facebook page!  Can't wait to see what you create!

My sweet friend Renita sent Cassidy a BIG box full of Halloween goodies!  First, she had to read the card:

She could read almost all the words herself!  I'll share more of the goodies later!
