ABC Christmas Challenge - F for Frills .... or NO Frills~


I'm back with another great challenge over at the ABC Christmas Challenge blog. It's just the most fun. I think, anyway. I love Christmas cards and the challenges presented every two weeks going systematically through the alphabet just speaks to the organized, A-type personality, nerd in me. I love it. Please do check it out and play along if you haven't already. I'm sure you will get into the spirit of things rather quickly. :D

To main Blog
Our lovely sponsor this challenge is:

Prize - a $10.00 Gift Certificate for Sweet Stamp Store manufactures artistic rubber stamps on cling cushion for use with acrylic blocks. We carry a variety of stamping and paper crafting goodies like our own Shades dye inks, metal embossing plates, embossing folders, cutting & embossing dies (Our very own Sweet Cuts Dies, Cheery Lynn, Marianne, Joy! and Nellie's), fine detail embossing powders, specialty cardstock and vellum along with supplies for parchment crafting. 

Now on to my card.... I choose the "NO frills" option much out of necessity as anything. I was happily ready to go along with a challenge, as frills are not my thing - but I'm all about trying something new, when I realized my supplies I wanted to use for "frills" were all packed up for our upcoming move. ! ha! Sounds just like my typical M.O.

So, I went super CAS for a No Frills kind of card....

If you are following my blog and seeing most of my posts, you are probably going to get tired of this large scalloped panel. I just lurve it. It's from MFT Blueprints 27 and I'm not gonna lie, I mostly wanted this Blueprint for that one die. I will happily use the some point, but I cut this one off and used it almost immediately. It's just fabulous. The background is PTI Simply Chartreuse ink over the MFT Geometric Print stencil and I stamped the sentiment from MFT Grand Holiday Greetings. Super simple and No frills, right? :)
Thanks SO much for stopping by to visit! Please come back again soon!
God Bless,

     "And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My name's sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and inherit eternal life."
