ABC Christmas Challenge

B is for what ever we want that starts with B for the first challenge of the year at  ABC Christmas Challenge.  I chose Birds.  Aren’t they ever so sweet.  I am working on using up my pre-printed images from Susan Louise.  They make such wonderful cards.  I do hand stamp something on each card even if it’s just the inside sentiment.  For this one i added the red berries with my Viva Pearl Pen and used distress inks on the specialty paper this is printed on.  It’s Tim Holtz Ranger specialty paper and takes the ink and water droplets beautifully. I found this scrap of cheese cloth in a drawer when i was organizing and it worked so well for this card.  I was really looking for my crinkle ribbon which i have no idea where i put it.  So much for that organizing effort.  Smile with tongue out


One more card to add to my pile and it is so satisfying to have the sentiments stamped and an envelope with each card as I put it into it’s storage box.  Yep, i think every year i get a teeny bit more organized.  Thanks for stopping by.  Hope your New Year is being fantastic for you.

  2. I like that cheese cloth ribbon. I admit that as organized as I am, there are some things I'm not sure where to look for them. I think organization is a never-ended and ongoing process.

  3. Yes! You sound very organized. Saves the 'rush' later.
    LOve this sweet image. Thank you so much for joining us at ABC Christmas Challenge.
