It's January 1st, and that means the beginning of a new year of challenges over at Jingle Belles Rock! This year I've decided to try and keep up with a few Christmas challenge blogs, mostly because my lack of craft shows means I don't make ANY holiday cards, and this way I can play along and use my small collection of holiday items. I need to justify their existence in my stash, you know.
I think I'll also mix things up a bit now and then and do non-traditional stuff, because that's the kind of gal I am. Case in point: The first challenge - Look What Santa Brought Me! - asks us to use something from our new crafty stash. How fortuitous that I just received some goodies from Simon Says Stamp, and needed an excuse to use them.
Here is my card, then I'll explain:
Viva La Verve, which includes this inspiration photo:
For the Jingle Belles' challenge, my Hero Arts Tweed stamp and the Hero Arts Shadow Ink in Soft Cantaloupe are both new, right out of the box. And even though this stamp set is old, I'm not sure I've ever used it.
Yeah, I'm definitely going to have to play again with orange and teal.
Thanks for stopping by!
