Happy Sunday everybody! Well, mine is almost over! The cold weather gives me the right mood to create some christmas cards and here is one I created today:


I made this for this week`s Cardpatterns sketch and for the Hero Arts "Holiday Accessory" challenge. The brocade stamp is Hero Arts, the paper and the brad are MyMindsEye, the scallop circle is from a notebook - I am not sure about the brand! The letters are my very first Thickers - love them! They are covered with fabric, it`s great to have a lot of texture on cards!

Ok, off to huddle up against my husband and watch some TV! Have a lovely Sunday and thank you for stopping by!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Hi Vanessa

Love this card very vintage looking. I love that brocade stamp you can use it in so many ways. Its great to make christmas cards when the weather is turning. I've lots to make in the next few weeks!!

Vanessa... what a lovely card and to get two challenges out of it... I must admit I like the CPS sketch this week. I really like the colours you have used.

Vanessa, this is so pretty. I've never heard of Thickers, but I think they're lovely. It's a bit chilly here, too. It's like we skipped fall. I think we're expecting snow by the end of the week.
