Just as a heads up. The regularly scheduled Featured Friday will be on break for the month of December due to hectic holiday schedules. But have I ever got some great guests lined up for January!
Deborah of Society of Stampaholics posted her big reveal of the Card Chain Club on December 1st, and I am just now getting around to posting my coordinating card.
This card was sent to Florida for Miss Barbara. I embossed that bird stamp I had and paired it with some striped paper and some charms I found at Michael's.
I'd like to enter my card into the Little Red Wagon's Things With Wings challenge because I love my golden embossed bird. That is one OLD rubber stamp from the 90s!
I'd also like to support the Chocolate, Coffee, and Cards Challenges "Use A Charm". It was fun to pull out some metal embellishments and figure out how to attach them to the card. I'd also like to thank May Arts Ribbon for the Natural Burlap string that I won in the Caring Hearts Card Drive Blog Hop. I LOVE it!!
If you haven't heard of the Card Chain Challenge - you should check it out! I make and make and make homemade cards, but rarely do I receive one. If you sign up for the CCC another crafter somewhere in the world will send you a homemade card (and sometimes extra little goodies). Signup is offered on a month-to-month basis so there's no obligation if you're busy on one month. The next signup will be offered on December 7th! :)
I received this amazing card full of sparkly goodness from Nicole of Chez Parmentier who mailed it all the way from the Netherlands:
I loved all the layers, textures and those sweet little wooden embellishments. It's proudly displayed with the rest of my homemade cards.
There. Now I am all caught up with some of the posts and can get back onto solid footing with good ol' December.
Thank you for stopping by! Leave me a comment and follow my blog and I'll be sure to return the favor!
