Christmas Birthday?

I was thrilled when Jo invited me to join the Design Team at C.R.A.F.T  Challenges, starting in December.

The sponsor this week is Toucan Scraps.

I have to admit that Challenge 79 had me puzzled for a while and I really had to step out of my comfort zone agin this week.

I made a birthday card in Christmas colours, and I used a Christmas journalling card:

I also used: Bazzill cardstock, Tim Holtz embossing folder, Cosmo Cricket alphabet stickers, Bella journalling card, Scenic Route patterned paper.

I'm submitting my card at:

# Party Time Tuesdays ~ PTT #23 ~ Anything Goes
# Papertake Weekly ~ Sketch 51
# Everything but the Kitchen Sink ~ Challenge 28 ~ Texture (dry embossing)


  1. OOOH I love that embossing! I really like the idea of using the Xmas colours for a different theme. And I was just looking at your last LO, and the blanket stitching around the edges looks just phenomenal!!!
