Playing with Christmas


I am joining in a couple of Christmas Challenges today.  No time like the present to start on my Christmas cards~

CASEing Christmas has gone monthly~ I love that!  Gives me all month to join in.

I used some Ranger tissue to cover the panel and used distress ink direct to paper for color, and then added Perfect Pearls over the top.  (the shimmer IRL looks really pretty).  After I embossed the panel, I stamped on the sentiment from PTI Think Big #20

 First time for me joining in this challenge -- very fun.








I went on to play in the One Layer Christmas Card Challenge #15; option candy cane.

Can't get much easier then this fun card.  I used the same PTI set as above.

Another fun day for me....


Thanks for stopping by~
