My First Christmas Card of the Year {With 100 Proof Press}

Yes, I'm aware that it is early, however, if one wishes to have enough of these suckers done on time, one must begin early. PLUS...I was inspired by this amazing Danita rubber stamp from 100 Proof Press!

So...a general recipe for a Christmas card would include Christmas paper (oops...left that one out), ummm...red and green (ooops...those didn't make it, either), Christmas stamps (ummm....turns out I forgot ghat, too), and perhaps some Christmas specific embellishemnts (Fail.). K. So, in short, this is a Christmas card lacking most of the traditional elements, and you wanna know something? I kinda love that about it!

That fabulous stamp is the Danita Angel (#6375-V) image. I LOVE THESE STAMPS!!! I combined the image with the Victoria Garden collection from Echo Park and the sticker from SRM Press was perfect! I finished it off with a bit of twine from The Twinery!

So, yes, it may be early for Christmas cards, but at least I didn't go all crazy Santa on you ... yet. HA! Have you started on your pre-holiday crafting yet? I have some gifts done, but only because I set them aside from earlier in the year. I hope to do some more, and then, of course, I need to do all of my cards. For now, however, I think I'll continue focus on Halloween and Fall, since we still have LOTS of time for those!!! YAY!

On another note...Pixie Dust Studio is celebrating the arrival of the Christmas season with FIFTEEN new images! Each one will be released over the next three weeks - one per day for the 15 Days of of Pixie Christmas!!! Check it out over on the blog!

I am entering this in the Jay Gee Challenge for this week and the "L" is for ... (I used LAYERS!) challenge over at My Time to Craft.

Happy Monday, folks!

Jingle Out!
