Celebrate Christmas:


Good morning all!  Hope had a wonderful weekend.  It rained a lot but also gave me a chance to hang out in my craftroom!

I have about 50% use of my right hand.  It's all splinted up and I can't move my thumb.  So a lot of the details on my card where done with my left hand, it got a little messy at times (hot glue every where!) and took WAY longer than usual.  Two thumbs up for effort - ouch!  Okay, maybe not.


I found the "Celebrate" from a birthday set, and the "December" and "25" are from a calendar set.  The "25" is really "2015" which I masked to fit.  I was determined to make it work.
Card Ingredients:  JustRite Birthday Vintage Labels Four and A New Day (Amazing Paper Grace release) stamps, Stampin Up! Purely Pomegranate ink, Kaiser Craft papers, DCWV cardstock, Wild Orchard flowers, Dress It Up jingle bells, American Crafts jute, Recollections gems, upcycled bling band and snowflake.  Tools:  JustRite Vintage Labels Four die, Elegant Labels Four and Labels Four Nesties, sewing machine.

I created this card for the following challenges:  jingle belles - sleigh bells, Christmas Card Challenges - snowflakes, JustRite Friday Challenge - Christmas in July, ABC Challenge - roses are red.


Have a great Monday!

You did this with one hand not 100%?! Geez...I have two good hands and could not replicate your card. LOL. It is gorgeous...as usual!

Hope your hand is better soon!
