Happy Holidays!

This sketch from Sunday Stamps is such a cutie. It would have been fun to use the Tape It! stamp set and Polaroid frame but that seemed far too obvious, and too easy. I began by pulling Tap, Tap, Tap from my shelf, and stamped the typewriter onto a Chalk Talk tag. I liked it, but it wasn't developing the way I'd imagined, so I've put that away for another day.


I scrolled through some more challenges and found the colour challenge at The Paper Players. I had already stamped on Whisper White before I registered that it was actually supposed to be Very Vanilla, and I'm sure it would have looked lovely, but since I wanted to use the snowflake from Frosted Sequins, the white works better.
One of the four borders in Bordering Blooms has been stamped three times across the middle of the Cherry Cobbler layer. Mingle All the Way has some great Christmas tags and this one is my favourite. I love all the different fonts and it cuts beautifully with the Banners Framelits. They are in the Weekly Deals this week! All in all, this is a quick Christmas card.

We are heading toward our summer break at Christmas, and there is only 5½ weeks of school left! Also means there's not too long till Christmas itself....have you made many cards?

Thanks for looking
Rachel
