Merry Christmas

 Welcome back and no I haven't died!! I know it's been a while since I last posted much and I have been in the midst of doing some remodelling and it has literally taken up a lot of my time. But the major portion of the remodelling is over and I can get back into my crafting mode. (Yea!!) 

In the midst of this remodelling project that has taken on a life of its own, I have been accepted on 2 design teams.They are sister design teams, Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and Love To Scrap Challenge Blog So I on 2 (new for me) new design teams. I am so excited to be sharing this news.Since the challenges post on the same day, my first post for today is showcasing my card for the Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog. Below is my project 

This card was so fun to make. That horse is an old paper drink coaster. Kind of like paper napkins it has 3 layers. So I peeled the layers off and glued the paper with the image to a piece of white CS. After it was totally dry I used a scalloped circle die and trimmed it up.Next I layered the coaster on a red scalloped circle and then layered that on a gold circle. Next I added the holly and the berries and then a sentiment and attached that to the square card base, which is a white card with gold and red layered CS
