Merry and Bright

Christmas is around the corner - how crazy is that!  I have been cleaning/decluttering for months and opened my card stash up to friends in the summer.  I just went to look for my Christmas cards and realized I've been almost completely wiped out!  Let me know when you get bored of Christmas.

This week's challenge at For Fun is a recipe challenge to use one image, two designer papers and three buttons or brads.  I found this challenging because I often don't use DP and rarely buy co-ordinating paper.  I have lots; it just doesn't co-ordinate.  The papers are scraps from my stash.  I love how the design elements on the DP give the illusion of a Christmas Tree.  It's really just the way I cut my paper.  The buttons and brad used up some stash in my odds and ends box and I had fun playing with my pearls and rhinestones.  The image is from Clear Dollar Stamps, our sponsor this week.  I've just found them and love their images.  I lucked out and won their new digi calendar in a blog hop this week.  Stay tuned for those images later.

I do hope you'll join us!
