Winner and Merry

I am on kind of a personal mission
this Christmas I am really
trying to use all the pieces I cut out
last year and didn't use. I always
pack up the leftover pieces from each
holiday and store them for the 
next year
well can't remember what happened last year
but wow had a ton of stuff......
so this card I use
"merry" from
MFT Christmas greetings
this set isn't available any more on their site
but is available on ebay
the tree is from
Holly Jolly Die set
I lightly inked the background with some
TH broken china ink
added a little scrap piece
of paper, some Gold DMC
metallic thread
a few little stars
and one more Christmas card is done

the winner of the
Saturday December 5th
Show it off Saturday Linky Party
chosen by


I have not made a shadowbox card but yours
is so beautiful I will have to try one very soon.
  Lori Whitlock designs they are so
easy to put together.
Love the classic red, green and
white. The glossy accents really brings life
to the card and the sentiment is perfect!

email me your address to
kfranciola @ ny cap  . rr . com
take out the spaces and I will
get your ribbon in the mail to you.
'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, — not even a mouse:
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there...."
