Reminder Alert!!!! Shopping Our Stash and the Jingle belles challenge blogs have joined forces.

The Jingle Belles challenge blog is committed  to help you take the pressure off the Christmas season by giving challenges to make your holiday cards.  Shopping Our Stash is joining them in the fun for this challenge. I'm all about getting a jump start on my Christmas/Holiday cards and I brought a few seasonal stamps with me to the cottage, if I can remember to tune into the challenge at the Jingle Belles I will be ahead of the game. Here is my reminder card using a few things that haven't seen the light of day for a while.

I used a doily die which is quite the ordeal to cut, back and forth, then turn and run a few more times after that is done there is the "picking" .  I love my little mousie stamps and of course have a collection, this is one of my favs, it's so versatile.  Warm Winter Wishes is an ancient stamp from Impression Obsession and also one of my favs. The lace for the bow I found while doing walk through Dollarama, looking for something else of course. The lace is a three pack and comes in white and cream.

Close up of Maxwell in the ornament, I use star dust stickles on the hat and snow.

I even got to finish the inside with a stamp from More Merry Messages from Stampin'up

Thanks for joining me today and please join both blogs for the challenge, it's a "twofer"
