Christmas love

This is my 2nd post of the night.  This time I'm sharing my 1st card done for Lady Anne's Christmas progressive challenge.

This month the great digis are from Eureka!!!  So just had to play with them both.  You will have to wait until tomorrow for the next one.

The 1st digi that I'm using is called 23002 and it's a beautiful heart.


I used some pretty bright papers from Kringle & Co by American Craft.  I used my scallop and classic large circle from Spellbinder.  I stamped the sentiment from some of my Christmas stamps.  I used some peeled paint distress ink around it.  I added some red buttons and voilà!

Here's a closer look at the great digi that I colored using my copics:
To make this card I followed this great sketch:


I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

  1. Lady annes challenges - Christmas progressive challenge #5
  2. Feeling-sketchy - Sketch
  3. Crafty sentiments - buttons
  4. C.R.A.F.T. - Christmas
  5. My time to craft challenge - Christmas in May
  6. jingle belles rock - Merry and bright
I'm really glad that I'm doing this Christmas progressive challenge... I gave a box of cards to my grandma last September... a bunch of miscellaneous cards.  Well she just asked for some more because she was running out.  So now I can't really give her a box of regular cards in September because she won't be out yet... but I have thought about giving her some Christmas ones!  They will be just in time for her to send them out.  When you are 95 there's not much that would please you... so I' m totally excited about this gift idea!!!  And with these challenges I should be all set by then!!!

Don't forget to leave me a comment I really love to read them.  Have a fabulous rest of the night.

Hugs
