 4 challenges inspired today's card...

Jingle Belles // #JB2318 ...A year round Christmas challenge!!  The current challenge is to create a vintage Christmas card.  Kraft card stock and a torn page from a hymnal make for a great vintage card.

ABC Christmas // AUG2023 ...An alphabet Christmas challenge!!  For this challenge, Q is for Quick!!  This was a quick Christmas card because I used an old hymnal, scrap designer papers, and old lace.

Try Stampin on Tuesday // #TSOT621 ...A sketch challenge!!  The TSOT team always throws out an optional twist to their sketch and for this current challenge they asked us to make a vintage card.  This old scalloped lace was perfect for the sketch and vintage theme.

New Challenge @ Shopping Our Stash


Today begins a new challenge at...

Shopping Our Stash // #SOS504 ...A "shopping your stash" challenge with a WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE theme.  Will it be lions, tigers, or bears??  For me it was an elephant!!  I won this elephant stencil back some time ago and had a lot of fun with it when I first got it but it has gotten hidden and forgot.  Also from my stash is the crocheted flower.  A friend made me a whole stash of them years ago and they also got hidden and forgotten.  So this challenge was great for finding things from my stash.  Our new jungle theme is sure to bring out some fun things from your stash, and I can't wait to see that might be.  Hop on over to our blog, check out what the other design team members found in their stash and then join the fun & play along with us.
