Fresh Made for the Queen

Hello crafty friends.  Here's another Christmas card.  I'm hoping I have almost enough to cover my Christmas card list.




This is for Queen Chris (glowbug) who is the Queen for the Day at SCS today.  Imagine that!  I'm coming in the front door bright and early instead of just before closing.  I used this card that Chris made as inspiration.

Freshly Made Sketches helped me with the layout.  My friend and Merry Maker teammate, Narelle, designed this sketch.  I can't imagine doing that!  Great job Narelle. I love it!

Shopping Our Stash is asking for anything that came in a jar, like embossing powder.

Christmas Card challenge is looking for bows this week.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted


Card Recipe
Stamps:  Ornament Keepsakes, More Merry Messages
Ink:  Gold (Encore)
Paper:  Very Vanilla, Brushed Gold, Champagne Glimmer
Other:  Gold Embossing Powder, Holiday Ornaments Framelits, Square Lattice EF, Organdy Ribbon (? from my stash)

We have out of town guests coming for the weekend and I have a Stamp Stack tomorrow so it's going to be a really busy weekend.   Hope you have a nice weekend planned and get some time to stamp.

Enjoy!
