THICC Theme #125 starts 4 October 2022 DT Inspiration Card

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My heart is always excited when I get to use my creative skills to paper-craft! Crafting Christmas cards ranks up there in my top 5 favorite formats/occasions! This Christmas card is for The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenges blog #125 that starts October 4, 2022. 

THICC is an always anything Christmas goes type theme published every 2 weeks on Tuesdays. 

Merry Everything Card=

Did you notice the little ornaments hanging below the vertically-run washi tape? There are 2 washi tapes used on this, 4 patterned papers with 3 coming from The Paper Studio/Hobby Lobby, and the 2 sizes of silver embossed snowflake stickers have all been in my Christmas stash boxes for many years! The TPS papers say 2016 on them!!!
