AnnaBelle Stamps





Welcome to AnnaBelle Stamps Friday challenge. I think we just might be swamped with entries with Andrea's theme  this time :).......  So come on ...... show us what you've got......we want to see your Christmas Cards! If you're anything like me you're still making one .....or two!

For my card I chose to feature a sentiment from 'Stamped For Christmas', though I also clear embossed the music score from  BBD 6  to green card.  Using Spellbinders square and Fleu De Lis dies for the frame and traditional colours I couldn't resist  a die cut and embossed Poinsettia :)

My base card is one of ABS 140mm square pre-cut Kraft cards that come in a pack of 10.  The dp is from KaiserCraft's December 25th 6" x 6" collection. AnnaBelle's beautiful red satin ribbon tied a pretty bow and I've added tiny cherry Sprinkles on either side of an artichoke Sprinkle, with 3 3mm toffee Sprinkles in the centre of the Poinsettia.



Hope you'll go check in with the Belle's today, all the links are under the DT tab at the top of my page.

Only one week to go..........are you ready? I'm almost there.... some wrapping to organise and a couple more bits of shopping then it's just some baking for Christmas bits to take with us......Phew how do all the Mums manage and those who work too???????   If you're one of these amazing ladies ........you deserve a medal!  Or as my Dad used to say "your blood's worth bottling".........well you get the idea!

Have a good week end...............
