Gettin' Jolly!

I have a quick card and a quick post today!  Here's my first shaped card that I've ever made.  Well, I've made a circle one, but it doesn't count, lol!  The current challenge at Peachy Keen is to make a shaped card.  I love their challenges--they make me think outside the box (or rectangle, if you will, tee-hee)!  You can find the PKS challenge here.

I love the seasonal Cricut cartridge "Gingerbread."  It's so simple, but fun to decorate!  I welded two stocking shapes with my Gypsy and used Ranger's Clear Rock Candy Stickles on the white icing.  Then I stamped my sentiment from my new PK-859 "Christmas Greeting Words" stamp set.

Here's a close up of that sentiment.  It stamped so well, the first time I used it!  (I didn't have to "prime it" or whatever--no having to rub an eraser on it like some stamp companies have you do!)  Then I embellished with a little Offray ribbon, a stick pin (from bulk at my LSS), and a Paper Studio button with some We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy floss!  It's pretty simple for me, but I like it.  I may have to do a few more!

You only have until midnight tonight, but go check out the Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge #45: Just Cards: Shape it Up.

And have a jolly day!
