Christmas Scene

I recently purchased a few sets from A Jillian Vance Design and this Christmas Scene card was made using some of the images from her Winter Woodland set. I only got one design done but I think I will be using this set for more cards as well. There are some really cute woodland creatures on it.


I used Momento inks and stamped the design onto glossy white card stock. I went very simple but cut the scene out with a My Favorite Things Die-Namics Wonky Rectangle Die. I also used a die from that set to cut out the red gingham pattern paper which is from Gina K. Designs. The sentiment from the set was layered onto red card stock and added to the front focal panel. Next I layered all onto a base card of white card stock. My finishing touch was to add some more gingham inside the card.


I am entering this card in the Double D's Blog Challenge where the theme is Simply Gingham.

Well, we were blessed again with more rain. In fact, we got 3 1/2 inches in the early morning hours. There is a possibility of even more tonight. I guess we shall see what the night will bring. But it seems the drought is broken for us. Already the weeds are popping up in the garden. So weeding will be the next thing besides gathering the produce. We had our first peas and beans from the garden so  I hope they will continue to bear well.

Thanks again for the lovely comments. I cherish all of them.

God bless,
Verna

You have another Christmas card for your stash. I think I love a gingham Christmas card. This one has such a cute theme and as others have said, is adorable. Glad you got some much needed rain and you are starting to harvest the veggies. Such a good feeling.
