Decided that I should try some stitched ornament Christmas cards this year - so bought one of the latest Spellbinders ornaments and am using it for my design at the TicTacToe Challenge #190 board created by Vicky.

Used gold thread for the stitching and then some metallic cardstock for the top and bottom accents.  A snowflake impression plate for a subtle background.  Framed it all with some darker turquoise cardstock.

I used the bottom row of the board for my card - frame, die cut and ornament.

Hope you'll join our challenge this week - great board for creating a Christmas or winter card!

Felicita's challenge for this week at TicTacToe Challenge is perfect for making a Thanksgiving card for someone in your family or to send to a friend.  I went across the bottom with rust, any color and gold foil.

I dug out an old Concord & 9th turnabout and had some fun with rust, blue and gray.  After trimming down my panel, I added a rust mat and then onto a blue card base.  The sentiment is from another old C & 9th set and die cut it from some gold foil cs.  A few gold sequins here and there completed my card.

Would love to see your card in our gallery this week!  Come join us for a chance to be a future guest designer.  Crafty hugs,

Elizabeth, our newest design team member, designed the board for this week's TicTacToe Challenge #186.  I went down the middle with red, sparkle and holly.

I started by gold embossing holly leaves all around the edges of a piece of dark red cardstock.  Stamped the sentiment and also gold embossed. Using some distress inks, I blended in toward the middle with darker reds.  Added red Nuvo drops onto the berries and then some extra sparkle with gold sequins.  Finally I sprayed the whole thing with some glimmer mist.  Sorry the photo looks blurred - I think it's the glimmer spray at fault! or maybe my poor photography skills!!!

Hope to see your entry in our challenge this week - great way to add another Christmas card to your stash!

 A special order wedding card - looks rather simple but took me forever to make - mainly 'cause I kept messing up stamping the names.

I used Concord & 9th's Sophisticated Script and the daisy embossing folder from Altenew.  I did the stamping first and then embossed.

Thanks for stopping by.

Haven't enter a challenge for awhile but this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches caught my eye and thought it would be perfect for these cute little cats!

Love that sentiment and have the perfect friend who will be receiving it!  It's from a very old Papertrey Ink stamp set.  The cats are from Amazon.

Thanks for stopping by and love to read your kind comments.
