I found a new Christmas Card Challenges blog … and I thought this Christmas card that I made recently at a friendship stamping day would fit the challenge perfectly! 3 of ‘something’? Not 3 trees (obviously) 😉 … but 3 rhinestone jewels …
I was really tickled with this creation … it is quite pretty isn’t it? Leonie & Jenny also made this card with different colours that were just gorgeous! I did have a photo somewhere … but I can’t seem to find it. I hope Jenny won’t mind me borrowing one from her blog! Leonie’s is the Wisteria Wonder card … and Jenny’s is the Pool Party. Don’t forget you can click on any of the pics in my posts to view better detail.
I am itching to stamp … and have several cards I NEED to make! I did manage to do a Father’s Day card for my F-I-L … and an 18th for my nephew. I will share those as soon as I find time to edit the photos and do a card recipe! 😀
I would also like to submit this for the Jingle Bells “Bingo” Challenge. BINGO – means I need to pick 3 elements in a row – either horizontal, vertical or diagonal. I have chosen the bottom line … “Heat Embossing/Tree/Ribbon”!
I do need to get going on my Christmas cards more seriously … because … with the wedding on the 8th Dec … I do need to be organised ahead of time! So I imagine I will be checking these two challenge blogs regularly for ideas! Back to my bookwork … I have taken far too long to get into it today!!! C U Soon!
PS: I can’t remember where I got the idea for this card? It may have been online … or may have come from my own tired little brain? If I have CASED your work here … please let me know because I am always very diligent to acknowledge any original inspiration! 😉
ADDED: Thanks, Fi 🙂 … here is the link … RENEE VAN STRALEN – Stamping for Sanity Thanks for the inspiration Renee! ( I guess this card shouldn’t be counted for either challenge … seeing it isn’t my own design! … Sorry!)
I have also updated the card recipe … which was incomplete! Thanks Trisha … for the heads up! 😀
