Christmas weekly post!




Not sure I should have put that title as I nearly didn't make it this week. I may be tempting fate!!

This week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown it is Louise's turn to set the sketch and here it is:



I have been thinking about this for a while as I wanted to use my new Stampin' Up 'Come to Bethlehem' stamp set. I have made a very CAS version of this sketch using twine to represent the 4 corner strips. I didn't seem to be able to get them as close as I wanted but hopefully you get the idea. The sentiment is from my new set and the star is part of the nativity stamp. I used this PTI impression plate for the first time and really like the texture it gives. I didn't add anymore to the card as I felt it would be too much.


And I am going to enter this into the 'ribbon/twine' challenge over at Crafty Hazelnut Christmas Challenge

What is in store for our Christmas challenges next week???

Have a great Wednesday x
