Merry Christmas to All! Atlantic Hearts Sketch #35

 Best Christmas wishes to all my crafty friends!
Crazy day to be posting (needless to say, this one was pre-scheduled), but there IS a sketch challenge out there for you this week, from Atlantic Hearts:
You have until Sunday night to link up, so maybe a little crafting time will be available later in the week...
Here's my card:
I took a little more freedom than usual with the sketch. The stamps and dies for the cup full of cocoa are a long-time ago gift from my sister, from Papertrey Ink. I used the silver washi tape from the CTMH Sparkle and Shine pack as the horizontal element and the candy-cane stripe paper from the same pack as the background. The sentiment was stamped on vellum--something I've been seeing out in the blog-o-sphere, which allows you to still see the image underneath, but still add detail.
The red glitter accents were cut from the CTMH red glitter tape, with a simple hole punch!
Another look:
So sweet friends, enjoy your day, and see you in blog-land!
Happy Christmas,


  1. what a neat card. Really like it. TFS

  2. Happy to see the long time ago gift put to such great use. I smiled when I saw your hole punched CTMH red glitter tape as I used it that way on my Xmas cards too!


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts!
