T'is the Season!!

Challenge 384 at Shopping our Stash is T'is the Season, it is Donna's brilliant idea for the last challenge of 2018. This challenge will  run from December 11 2018 until January 7th 2019.  We would like you to make a project to show how you celebrate whether it be Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanza or any other celebration.

My thoughts of Christmas is Family, decorating the tree and Christmas eve carol service. When the children were young we went to the Christmas morning service and each child got to take one of their toys and have it blessed as we knelt for communion. So I went with ornaments, houses and church all in one lovely die. First I cut it with white foam core wasn't happy so cut it out of some very ancient 6x6 glitter paper pad I have been hoarding it. The background was embossed with a cuttlebug winter embossing folder I have had for over 5 years not sure if I have used it before. The silver cord Is also very ancient and it is very heavy and stiff as you can see by the bow.

Close up of the lovely scene.

Finished inside of the card with a couple of die cut ornaments from Impression Obsession which this might be only the second time I've used it. The set comes with a bell, candle, candy cane, tree, gingerbread man, snowman and two ornaments. I need to keep these at the front of the die box and use them more often.

I would like to enter this in: 

Jingle Belles ~~ Taking back our 8th December

Happy Little Stampers ~~ Anything goes with Dies

Winter Wonderland ~~ Anything Goes Winter

Thanks for stopping by today, check out how the design team celebrates the season and remember 
We are on break from December 18 2018 until January 7th 2019
