Shabby Tea Room Challenge #193
I am excited to be participating in the Shabby Tea Room Challenge again, as they treated me so nicely last time.
Christmas challenges are tough for me. I think I only have 1 or 2 Christmas stamp sets. I learned one year that I really don't like making Christmas cards, at least not the same card over and over. One year I made 50 of the same card and I hated it. I am not an assembly line stamper. So, I generally don't buy Christmas crafting/stamping supplies.
When my kids were young I would scrapbook Christmas so I have a little bit of Christmas paper but that is it. Honestly, I love when the season is over and all the stamp companies get back to non-holiday releases.
I do love Christmas and make almost all of the gifts for friends. Just not all the craft products.
Anyway, here is the inspiration photo for this week:
We are to use gingham, red, blue and ivory.
I realized with this inspiration, I don't really do country too well, either.
Here is my card:
The frame is ivory, although I dry brushed a little white paint on it to "countrify" it a little.
The birdhouse has a little pine bough on it. That, along with the sentiment and voila, Christmas it is!
