Tags til Christmas with Merry Little Christmas …

Hi and welcome to my blog. Patricia is our new hostess for the month of May at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, and this week is sketch week…

This DL sized card is in smoky slate and pool party …


The small punched stars look quite dimensional, but fold flat for posting.


I used my handy-dandy stamp-a-majig for perfect placement of the sentiment (I’d be lost without that thing!)

I’m linking my card to the Retro Rubber Challenge #13 – anything goes – remember your old stamps. Quite appropriate really as the stamps I’ve used have been in my stamp library for a while, in fact the star is from one of the first sets I bought from Stampin’ Up! way back when, but I love it and would hate to part with it.

I hope you like my card for this week. The Design Team has created lots of lovely cards to inspire you, so do pop over to 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge blog to take a look.
