{Christmas Blessings}

Happy Saturday everyone!

We are in the midst of another cold snap here in central Alberta -32C overnight and then around -27C daytime. Brrrr....I think we have some reprieve coming next week (let's hope they are right!)

How are your Christmas preparations coming along? I think I just have some baking to do and I will finish trimming the tree today or tomorrow...and there's always those last minute shopping trips a few days before, right?! lol....

Today I am showcasing another pretty card made using stamps from The Project Bin

I used the gorgeous set called Luke 2 for my card:


I started with the pretty sentiment stamped with Versafine Black Onyx and then cut it out with the wonky stitched rectangle die from Craftin' Desert Divas to frame it. The papers are from Doodlebug and I added a pretty ribbon, snowflake, twine and pearls to finish it off....

I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Brown Sugar - Anything Goes
Jingle Belles - Christmas cards
Jo's Scrap Shack - Anything Goes
QKR Stampede - Christmas cards
CRAFT - Christmas
Crafty Ribbons - Christmas

Thank you so much for popping in today! I am off to turn on some Christmas music, grab a fresh coffee and start some baking....cheers!!
