CCCB Week #25 - Horray for the Holidays

This week it is Cheryl's turn to host over at City Crafter Challenge Blog and the challenge is to create an holiday project,you can pick ANY holiday and create ANY kind of project for it.I choose to do a Christmas card with a matching tag.

I machine stitched around the edge of the DP and distressed using Crumb Cake and Choc Chip ink,I scrunched the ribbon by hand stitching a running stitch and pulling.I added a touch of glitter to the baubles,everything I used was from Stampin' Up.

Cardstock - Crumb Cake,Real Red
DP- Christmas Jingle,Newsprint
Ink - Crumb Cake,Real Red,Chocolate Chip
Stamp Sets - Tree Trimmings
Other - Real Red Satin Ribbon,Dazzling Diamond Glitter,Basic Pearls

A few weeks ago I sent Ros some crafting goodies for her Thursday Club where she teaches crafts to special need adults.This afternoon I had a lovely surprise when the postman delivered a parcel,it was full of thank you cards from everyone at Thursday Club.I was so touched at how much effort went into the cards and the messages inside,so thank you to each and everyone of you.
Here are their beautiful creations.

Thanks for stopping by !!!

Great card and tag. You know I think I've become a convert to kraft cardstock once Stampin Up started calling theirs crumb cake. I guess my sweet tooth is connected to my scrapping hands - well, at least in my mind??
