A little birdie told me there are only 9 weeks 'til Christmas!!!

We want to see your "Male Cards"
and we are lucky enough to be sponsored by
I recently picked up a fun set of Jofy (for Paper Artsy) Christmas stamps and decided to have a go using the wreath and birds against a Word processed banner of my own making.  My sentiments are Papertrey Ink - I love these for Christmas - you get a die and a set of coordinating stamps to complete a phrase. The little tags and the wreath stamp on the top most tag are also PTI.  This card looks very simple but for some reason it took forever.  I used a Stampendous text stamp for the text on the birdies and some of the berries and paper pieced them.
I really like the black, red and Kraft colours for either a male card or perhaps just a trendy friend.

Do gather your Christmas stash together and get creative with us. There is lots of inspiration from my fellow CASSettes and I know they would very much like for you to visit with them and share some love.

Adorable Lesley! Love the baubles on the wreath and way you paper pieces the birds! I don't think it looks simple at all, it looks beautiful!!!!!

I can see why it took a long time. There is a lot of work and imagination in this. Details make this card very very special!
