Mornings all :)
It is time again for a new challenge at
This week the challenge is ...
The challenge theme is optional, the only real rule is you must create a new Christmas Holiday, winter or Hanukkah card / creation.
Now, I always get a little muddled with challenges like this.
Is digital stamps still stamping ??? is it after all called a 'stamp'.
So to play this challenge theme totally safe and to really challenge myself, I totally avoided inking up any rubber and my printer. I have a big ole draw of Rub-On's that are always neglected so now was the prefect time to dust them off and rub them off!
I reached for my new stash of Kraft again for this card. I have slightly distressed along the edges with some TH Distress inks, added some gorgeous rich red stitching with DMC thread, a touch of ribbon and a bow topped with a handmade button that is embellished with 3 red beads. The gorgeous pin is handmade and was a gift from my dear friend Debbie from The Crafty Pad for my birthday - I just adore the chain on it! And the sentiment is a Kaisercraft Rubon from the Tis The Season Collection from my stash.
It is a little C&S for me but I can see this card being made a few more times as Christmas approaches as it is just so pretty and I am so in love with it, and the red and brown combo is just delicious!
As always the girls and I would love if you played along with us at
I look forward to seeing you there!
Thanks for dropping in to see me today :)
