Xmas Party Time

Yes, I know scary but I have made a Christmas card. 
This year over at Craftmad we had decided to have a separate sketch each month for a Christmas card.  This way we can build up our collection and not have to panic at the end of the year.
I will either keep the ones I have done for the end of the year or donate them to the Aussie Troops serving overseas collection in October.

So I have used the sketch at Craftmad. The base card is this beautiful shade of green Linen Textured card.  I then dug out my Stampin Up (SU) Design Christmas Paper from two years ago.  The top circle topper I have used SU Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla.  The SU Very Vanilla I have run through my Holly embossing folder.  The circle shapes are cut out with my Spellbinder Nesties . Isn't this such a fun 3D Paper Tole image.  I am so glad to be doing Christmas cards early as I had this all layered up and ready to go but ran out of time to use her.  This is from a Sarah Kay Die Cut Sheet from over at Blue Edge Crafts.
It's a little hard to see but I have run a thin gold ribbon vertically and horizontally on the left hand side of the card.  The 'Party Time' sentiment is from a magazine giveaway which I have layered with SU Cherry Cobbler.

A fantastic Friday wish sent to you all and hope you have a terrific weekend.  See you Monday.


  1. Hi Merry, I am back among the living so to speak. Yup it has been rough going and I lost some trees I planted 20 years ago. They were my babies and I have shed tears. But ever onward. Thanks for your comments. They mean a lot.
    Now don't be scaring me with Christmas cards no matter how cute they are! A week with no power can do crazy things to ones brain. You had me wondering if I had gone into hibernation. LOL
    But what a great idea. You are way ahead of the game!

  2. Very pretty card!!
    Love the background paper and the girl so fun!
    What fun to create a card once a month to get ready for Christmas!!
    Have a wonderful weekend!!

  3. Very cute card! And a great idea to start so early to make Xmas cards:) I always let them on the last minute:) Wish a wonderful weekend!

  4. that is such a great idea to make a card a month.. typically I've left it a bit late (and have zero energy) to join in this month... love the decopage xx

  5. Merry, thank you very much for your comments in my blog. Glad you like it. Each card you make, I see it. Happy weekend!

  9. Hi Merry, I have to admire your haste to start on your Christmas done, I am always last minute...It's gorgeous and a favourite image of mine to.xx

  10. Such a cutie-pie image that is... and the paper looks really elegant. I love Cherry Cobbler red. And I can see the gold ribbon even though it is a wee bit subtle... guess cameras never make cards look the way they do in real life.
