'Christmas Quilt'

Here is a cute non-traditional Christmas card.  I used the adorable Quilted Christmas DSP for the 3 little squares.  So there really wasn't much stamping done here.  Don't you think it turned out super cute!

I did shadow stamp the flower from the stamp set on the Blushing Bride card front.  I just didn't show up in the photo very well.  I got a swap from someone similar to this card, but I can't remember who it was & I can't find their card.  But the inspiration for this card did come from them.

Yesterday was a long & busy day.  Pigs, friends & stamping!!  I was just beat last night. 

This morning we are off to church.  I finally have a Sunday off of work & get to go.  Brody & Drake are in the Church Christmas program.  So my mom is meeting Deke & I there, along with the Seeley family of course.

This afternoon/evening I'll be a stamping fool.  I have lots to get done.

I hope you have a SUPER Sunday!!

Check out the card!!  It is made using my favorite new stamp set in the upcoming Occasions Catalog- called 'Petal Palette'!  There is also some new navy corduroy ribbon on it too!  I just love it all!!!  So stay tuned, as over the next few months I know I'll be using this new stamp set quite often!!  And I'll be sharing more super cool new products/projects too!

Again.......THANK YOU for letting me share my love of stamping with you!!
