Wow! TGIF! It’s been a long week with subbing while fighting off a cold, but I made it through the week and those 2nd graders were a dream class! Amazing! So very sweet and considerate! I’ll miss them, but am so ready for the weekend…and a 3 day one at that! WooHoo!! Thank you, MLK Jr! 😉
I have this fun card to share with you tonight…based off a sketch from Catch the Bug Challenge Blog, who were celebrating their 9th Birthday this whole week! Fun! Been too sick/busy subbing to join in the celebration, but I did get this one done last weekend before I got sick!
Their Stella Says Sketch Challenge was this:
Isn’t it cute?! When I saw that stripe pattern, the Dashing Along DSP popped right into my head and I knew I had to make a Christmas card! Yes, I did say Christmas card and I know that the holiday is over, but like I have said before…I am making them all year long so that I don’t have the crush and cram come Nov/Dec. I plan on having my whole Christmas card stash made before the end of October so that I can play with the new Holiday stuff without the stress of needing to make my own cards for sending! Keep coming back to see how I do! I’ll see about figuring out how to keep a count of them on the blog sidewall, if I can…stay tuned!
Here is my card for this challenge! Funny how I have had that Santa Stache stamp set for about 5 years and this past season is when I finally get around to using it and now I can’t stop! LoL
Didn’t this turn out so cute?! I love it! It could easily be a way to use up smaller pieces of patterned papers and be done on a note card too! Hmmm…I’ll need to keep that in mind!
Supplies I used are:
- Dashing Along DSP (oops, as I was looking for the link I discovered that this is discontinued from the Holiday catalog, sorry!)
- Paper Trimmer
- Santa Stache stamp set (retired, sorry)
- Greetings from Santa – sentiment – (retired, sorry)
- Double Stitched Ribbon in Cherry Cobbler
- Ink – Tuxedo Black
- Stampin’ Blends – Cherry Cobbler dark
- Banner Triple Punch
- Whisper White Cardstock
- Paper snips for the fussy cutting of the Santa
- Adhesives – dimensionals, snail
Psst, I haven’t looked because I have them…but retired stuff might be found on ebay or fb yard sale site…it’s worth a look if you really want to find them. I’m keeping mine since I fell in love with it so much this past season.
