Christmas Sisters:

Good morning all!  I hope the week has been treating you well.  I have been sick but still kicking!  I have my first craft show on Saturday and I have been trying to get everything ready and squeaking out the last Christmas cards for it.

It's a new fortnightly challenge at All That Scraps.  This week is Anything Goes.  But please do remember, your project must include an image sold at the All That Scraps Store.

I used this new Swiss Pixie Sisters stamp - oh my goodness, that is a whole lot of CUTENESS!!!!

I gave these sweeties matching little dresses with a touch of sparkle.
Card Ingredients:  C.C. Designs stamp, Craftsmart Black ink, MME and DCWV papers, Recollections cardstock,  Prismacolor pencils, Recollections gems, Studio G glitter glue.  Tools: sewing machine, blending stumps, mineral spirits, Labels 18 and Oval Nesties.

I made this card for the following challenges:  The Kraft Journal - holiday kraft, Sweet Stamping Pixies - monochromatic, Flourishes - happy things, Crafty Creations - Christmas, Divas by Design - 2 or more pattern papers, Top Tip Tuesday - kids/teens, Anyone For Anya - sketch

Top Tip Tippy -  To make your favorite papers go further, use sparingly.  I LOVE the kraft graph-like papers from MME, but I have very little of it.  The paper band across the card stops on either side of the Nestie.  Every little bit helps!!  Now I will have more paper to use on another card :)

Have a wonderful Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by :)

Oh Deanne, I fell in love with your card the moment I saw it. It made me think of Leanne and I, and if at all possible, I would love to buy it from you, so I can take it to Leanne for Xmas. However if you're selling it at your craft sale, I totally understand.
