FMS341 and MM294 Christmas Barn

Happy Saturday, everyone!  I've been falling behind on my Christmas cards, and I thought the Merry Monday challenge was a nice one, but I realized I only have ONE barn stamp...I have cabins, but no barns!  I paired it with the Freshly Made Sketches sketch as well:

So here we go!  My card is notecard-sized because my stamped elements are rather small; I think if I did this again, I might change the colors, but for now, it is what it is!

I embossed my notecard front with the Softly Falling embossing folder, and then added my stamped elements:  the barn from Papertrey's On the Farm in Night of Navy, along with some trees from Hearts Come Home in Shaded Spruce; and the "snow", also from Papertrey, stamped in Balmy Blue.  I added a few little stamped"snowflakes" and a sentiment from the new Itty Bitty Greetings.  The final touch was a little diecut snowflake, embellished with a rhinestone, also in Balmy Blue:

Another one to add to the stash!

Yesterday was the last day of school and a couple photos were in order!  Cassidy and our neighbor Lee posed together:

And we couldn't leave out Lee's sister Jackie!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!!

LeAnne, this is gorgeous and I wouldn't change a thing! I love how the circle element is nestled in the hillside, and leave it to you to have a stamp with a barn!

Love your barn scene on your pretty card LeAnne. Thanks for joining us at Merry Monday.

One barn stamp is all you needed! The size was perfect for this sketch!

Such a cute card and perfect for the sketch. I can't imagine what your craft area looks like and how you keep track of all your stash. I made a Christmas card yesterday but the only barn I have it the one from Heartland and that was too big. It is also not the right season for these challenges...but I did have my eye on them! Good job!! Will you have Cassidy all day for the summer?

Kampin' Karen said...

Oh, I also wanted to ask you like Itty Bitty better than Teeny Tiny? I find it difficult working with such small sentiments. You, obviously, do not have that problem :-)

This is a great card LeAnne! I love that barn and your snowy background! I can't believe you're behind on your cards!!! I haven't even thought about mine yet!!! I can't believe Cassidy is finished the second grade already! Seems like just yesterday you were posting her baby pictures! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!
