Challenge Card

Here's my take on this week's Paper Craft Planet sketch challenge. Vintage Christmas is one of my all time favorite Christmas sets from Close To My Heart, and I realized last night that I hadn't used it yet this year. I thought it would be a good match for the vintage feel of Basic Grey's Wassail paper.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy, Desert Sand, and Barn Red cardstock; Basic Grey Wassail 6x6-inch paper pad; New England Ivy, Desert Sand, Bamboo, and Vineyard Berry stamp pads; Vintage Christmas stamp set; New England Ivy grosgrain ribbon; Pewter mini brads.

My "to do" list for today is longer than yesterday's - one thing leads to another. Unfortunately, I'm not getting off to an early start. Marv wanted to sleep in, which means I'm currently tip-toeing between the coffee maker and my den. I'll give him another half hour and then, it's "rise and shine" whether he likes it or not. Don't I sound tough? It's a facade. Out my window, it's a winter wonderland this morning. It's snowing, and what covers the ground looks like a fluffy, white blanket. That said, I'm going to go start something in my corner. Thanks for stopping, and have a great day. Later!
