Hello! Happy Monday! Have you notice how quickly Christmas is creeping up? I have seen people on Facebook that have already started the countdown. It is going to be here before we know it.
I am still trying to get a jump on my Christmas cards. I have a new card created with Saint Nicholas (E659) from Great Impressions Stamps to share with you today.
Since this St. Nick image seems a little vintage, I decided to give the card a vintage / distressed feel. A bit of cardboard (from a recycled Starbucks coffee sleeve), distressed edges, and twine add a little texture.
Don’t forget you still have plenty of time to join the October Great Impressions Stamps challenge – A button and a bow. You can link your creation or see all the challenge details at the Great Impressions Stamps blog.
I have one last thing to share with you today. This e-card seems to sum things up….
Have a great day! Thank you for stopping by!
