SOS #177….NOT Ready for Christmas

Looking for my Clear it Out Post scroll down or click HERE
The team at Shopping Our Stash are NOT ready for Christmas but we challenge you to use a Christmas stamp/set for a NON Christmas project. Head over to the blog and check out what the rest of the design team has made for your inspiration.  I used a cute Stampendous  holiday themed stamp and it is one I have had for years. I do use it every year though. Here is the stamp and card for your viewing.

Even the sentiment is one of the older stamps I have and if you saw the rubber side you would see how much it is loved.

I inked just the cats and then used the Happy Birthday to You instead of Bearing gifts We Travel  Afar. The white metal dots are also out of my stash, I bought them when I was in the U.S. at least 5 years ago and I have been hoarding them until this challenge. Wow did I go out of my comfort zone on the colours of the card but the further away from Red/Green the better for this challenge.

I even got the inside finished with the Top Note again.

Mr Linky will be open until Monday, November 17th, at 11:55 pm ET. Please limit your total number of challenges to 13, including ours.
Thanks for stopping by today and  it’s your turn to show us your non-Christmas project made with a Christmas Set/Stamp.
