My Time To Craft Christmas challenge no 12 theme is Use Favorite Christmas Stamp

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My artsy-crafty heart got excited about this new theme challenge for MTTCC challenge blog! I don't have a lot of Christmas or wintery stamps but decided to use 2 new ones purchased about 8 months ago. (1) It's a mitten with a heart in the center of the outline shape! So adorable! (2) The perfect sentiment stamp "From the Heart".


What: My Time To Craft Christmas challenge blog's theme is Use Favorite Christmas Stamp and tell why

Who: me, design team member of MTTCC

When: MTTCC #12 starts June 18

Why: DT inspiration card for #12; in the intro I shared my reason that these are newly purchased rubber stamps; also I've pondered that with my personal blog having the word heart in its title, the mitten's heart and the expression 'from the heart' are going to make these my new favorites! :)

Where: MTTCC #12 link=

Note: #12 is now available when I checked on 6/19 at 4:30 am CST. [we just got a dog on the evening of the 14th!!! A 9 year old small mixed breed male dog that was named Junior but he didn't really respond to so I'm calling him Mr. Bennett after the father in Pride and Prejudice!!! We're in the midst of severe thunderstorms and Bennett needed to go out at 4 am!!! He's drying while I'm checking on the status of the blog. Take care, folks. Check to see what are the favorite stamps for the rest of the crew=

BYSHC blog title image and #11 sketch image =

My sketch interpretation was to move the circle shape up and also lower the horizontal strip because it fits the patterned gap between the rows of the Nativity Manger scenes. The sentiment rectangle was switched to vertical for 2 reasons: the stamp format and the fitting between the vertical space between Nativity Manger scenes.
