Something Old, Something New

Hello!  Nothing like waiting until the last minute to post some blog challenges!  This is another Christmas card - building up my stash now so I'm not panicking in November/December.

Here's my card:

Stamps: Label Love, More Merry Messages
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green (markers too)
Paper: Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green, Be of Good Cheer DSP (retired)
Accessories: Artisan Label punch, 1" circle punch, Gumball Green Stitched Satin Ribbon, Regals Candy Dots, Dimensionals

Here's a close up of the new candy dots - LOVE THEM!

Did anyone notice my big blunder on this card?  I don't think you can see it very well in the photo but I'll share anyway because I like to laugh at myself when I do goofy things. After I had completely assembled the card I realized the card opens to the left instead of the right!  Seeing as how the sentiment is do not open until Christmas I thought it would make it more challenging!  My hubby is a lefty so I think I'll give this card to him - he'll get a chuckle out of it too.

 Here are the links to the challenges for this card -

Christmas Card #134 challenge : Stitching...real or faux. Pin It Now!


  1. Lol! What a happy accident to make the card open the other way round - it's a great twist to the 'do not open ...' - thanks for entering my CHNC challenge 134 - you could also enter this into my CHNC challenge extra for July - I'd love to see it there too. x

  2. Love the way it turned out so appropriate

  3. Great take on the sketch - I hope you'll link up at 52 Card Pickup this week!
