SOS 386 and JB 02 for combined challenges in this 2019 Christmas Card

Trying 2 new blogs for design inspiration and possible prizes and/or recognition at Shopping Our Stash and Jingle Belles--

Design notes:
a. snowman scene is a clipart image!!! YES!!!; filled in with colored pencils for a soft look to match the soft pinkish red cardstock
b. green and ivory plaid cardstock is old stash inventory
c. dimensions of base= about 4.25" x 6. 25"

I just love how this turned out!!! Having my first Christmas card ready almost 11 1/2 months early is a record for me!!! I'm usually sending out Christmas cards as New Year's ones!

About the challenges:

JB:19:02= "Look What Santa Brought Me"--new supplies featured on my card are both lettering sticker sets, the green doily (only used the center), the white glitter tape under the heart and the word "For".


SOS #386= "Hearts on Fire"--so I was supposed to raid my stash but a new package of foil hearts was setting on my temporary craft area on the dining room table...foil heart it is!

Don't worry about my anniversary dates if you've been reading my posts this month! We did lunch out today to make #14 of 23 and battled blowing snow for a supper date #15. We have until Sunday to try to get 8 more dates in before we officially reach our 23rd anniversary!!!! I've only scrapped the first 5 dates and have pics printed for #6-8, so I've got to get back to that part of my crafting.

So check back in the next day or so!--Becca S
