Holiday Hugs

Hi There!

In an effort to knock out some Christmas cards towards my 2014 stash, I thought I would play along again at Merry Monday!  The theme this week is Ornaments. So I pulled out my Waltzingmouse Stamps again and got to work. 
I used lots of different Waltzingmouse Christmas sets to create the card. Mostly taking flourishes and snowflakes to create the backing paper behind the ornament. The sets I used:
Vintage Ornaments (Ornament)
Seasons of Love Tags (Snowflakes, flourish)
Sewing Box Christmas (snowflakes)
I used a scrap of patterned paper I had at the bottom and scraps of ribbon at the top to make the banners. I never throw anything away even tiny ribbon pieces because they usually come in handy in the design process at some point! :-)))

As mentioned, I found inspiration at Merry Monday - Ornament Challenge
I am going to share at Just B Creative - January Linky Party, Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes, 3 Girl Jam - Anything Goes With Ribbon, Pixie's Crafty Snippet Challenge.

I hope you are staying warm wherever you are. Even the south has been hit with snow and cold. 

Have a Terrific Thursday!
~Tammy~

Hi Tammy

Wow, a gorgeous card! Beautifully made as always. And I spotted the magic word 'scraps' aka 'snippets' :) You can come and play in the Snippets Playground if you like - it's a bit wet out there though right now.

Hugs, Di xx
