Christmas wishes...

{for my Precious Remembrance Shop post, please click here}

Hey friends!! Wow... Christmas is just a few days away!! My little guy is soo excited! Every day he tells me "Christmas is almost here"!  Love the joy and excitement that little kids have when it comes to Christmas time.  Have a card to share for a few challenges.. Freshly Made Sketches, ColourQ, Sparkle and Shine and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of die cutting.  The current Simon Says Stamp flickr challenge is also die cutting so I have posted my card in their flickr gallery, as well.  I have had the SSS stamp set Christmas Graphics for ages and have wanted to make a card with it, but just couldn't seem to come up with anything.  But when I saw the new FMS layout I knew it would work perfectly with Christmas Graphics.  All the panels were die cut using my A Jillian Vance Design Polka Dot Rectangle backdrop dies.  The smaller one was stamped with the larger Christmas tree image using Kiwi Kiss ink and then the "stick" tree was stamped inside that using Crumb Cake ink.  A little star from the set was also stamped in Kiwi Kiss and trimmed out.  The Christmas (from the SSS die set Christmas Blessings) was die cut 4 times from red cardstock and then all the pieces glued together.  I adhered the word to my panel and then added the word "wishes".  The star was added to the top of the tree along with some clear and black Pretty Pink Posh 4mm sequins.  That panel was matted with a black panel, adhered to the kraft panel and then everything adhered to a red card base.   Love the FMS layout so I will definitely be using it for another card in the near future!



Thanks for stopping by today...
