Stamping Sensations Stampin' Up for Christmas

Sorry I haven't been around for a while.  I got my second bout of CoVid and have been too poorly to do much of anything.     

But things are improving and I managed to put together a card for our new "Christmas" theme at Stamping Sensations where one of our regular entrants has been kind enough to supply us with two pretty stamp sets for this month's prize.

My card was designed by friends Nikki Raine and Colette Melly at one of their Stampin' Up classes I attended back in the pre-Covid era.   Being a slow crafter, I quite often didn't finish projects started in the classroom and brought home the bits to make at another time.  I didn't always get around to finishing them!  

Feeling as rough as I have been these last ten days, I really couldn't manage to make a brand new card but found the makings of this card in a little cellophane pack amongst my stash and managed to cobble it together in time for today.  It uses all Stampin' Up ingredients.  

I missed the post I was supposed to make for Everybody Art Challenge last Tuesday where the theme is for "vintage".  There is plenty of inspiration on our challenge site and we would love for you to play along. 

I am entering my card into the following challenges:

CAS on Friday #243 Winter (this is about as CAS as I can make a card!)
Krafty Chicks #636 Stamp Act
Simon Says Stamp (Mon) - Christmas

Tic Tac Toe #186 I've used Christmas Tree Sparkle & Star

We love to Create Mixed Media #11 Anything Mixed Media Goes

Edited to add my great pleasure that my card, designed by friends Nikki & Colette, was a team pick at Tic Tac Toe!
