Christmas at Sweet Stampin' ~ Shhhhhhh
Hey there lovely crafty friends. I hope you've had a wonderful Christmas and New Year break and are ready to embrace all that 2019 has to offer. That season went far too fast for me and I was not as ready as I hoped to be, so I do seriously need to start earlier this year with my Christmas prep. Thank goodness for Christmas at Sweet Stampin'! It gives me a lil' push in the right direction each month to prepare at least one Christmas card, though my goal is two or three per month. To ease the mad rush at the end!
I've made a Christmas card with one of the sweetest Santa images ever. This is by artist Elisabeth Bell and I LOVE her enchanting images. He's so sweet, with this lil' 'hush' pose. I kept the design simple as this card was one of my 'last minute' ones from this Christmas just gone. I'll start creating again for Christmas next month.
You can find a good selection of Elisabeth Bell's images over in her digital store. I've been a huge fan of hers for a great many years now and have a lovely mix of rubber and digital images. Her collection has so many gorgeous images, I could colour them all day!
I used a rather lovely die from Whimsy Stamps for the 'Believe' sentiment. Love these word dies and the cardstock I cut it from has a lovely satin sheen, so when it catches the light is really pretty.
I wish you a wonderful year as we begin 2019 and wish you love, laughter, good health and pennies enough for new craft stash! Come join in our first challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' with us and let's get organised for next Christmas! Hugs, Wends xoxo
