Christmas Stampin' All Year Long

Good Morning!! It's Monday, that means that it is Christmas card day!! At Christmas Stampin' All Year Long, we create Christmas cards every Monday. By the time November arrives, we have a whole bunch of Christmas cards ready to send out!! How much stress will that take out of the holiday season??
Anywhoo, our fearless leader, Maria has created another fabulous sketch for us to use. This will be sketch #10. This was a great sketch and one I will use again for sure.


For my card this week, I used some pretty K&Co. Christmas paper, Doodlebug buttons, Bo Bunny ribbon, Martha Stewart Snow glitter, Inkadinkado sentiment stamp and Great Impressions stamp for the main image. I stitched the patterned paper to my card with my sewing machine. I used a paper piercer to do the piercing and my Copics to color my image. I also used Glossy Accents on the snowman's hat and button for a shiny effect.

This is a very simple card but I think it turned out great. What do you think?
Be sure to visit the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog to see what the other challenge divas created. I also have them listed on my sidebar. We'd love for you to play along, just leave a comment and a link to your creation on the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog or if you upload to SCS or PCP, use the keyword CSAYL.

Thanks for coming by to look at my blog. I hope you enjoy my creations and that they will bring you inspiration. I'll see you tomorrow with more eye candy for you to look at!! Have a wonderful day!!
Recipe:
Stamps: Great Impressions, Inkadinkado
