Christmas Card #35 and SCRSC #4

Yeah-It's been way to long since I've posted a card for Sparkle's Christmas challenge. This was actually last weeks challenge. The challenge was to use a non-traditional Christmas image on your card. This card also is for the Sparkle's creation rubber stamp challenge, which was to use your favorite embellishment.

Now for me that is quite difficult as my 'favorite' embellishment changes like New England weather. For this card though, I did use stickles, flowers and a button, so I guess one of the only things missing is ribbon. Unless of course you count the middle of the button. I also chose to paper piece her outfit and umbrella which is something else I like to do when I have patience.

I just bought myself a real simple Kenmore sewing machine and hopefully I can learn to sew on my cards. Who knows if I can master that, maybe that too will become one of my favorite things. One can never have enough favorites right?

So, I'm off to clean the craft room and maybe set up my new toy. Enjoy what's left of your weekend and I promise, promise to post more crafty stuff and to just post more in general.
