Our First Challenge :)

Good morning everyone!

I'm super excited to be posting today... because it's my first post for the new Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge! Our challenge starts today and a new challenge will be posted every other Tuesday AND it's Always Anything Goes as long as it's a Christmas project! :)
I'm so happy to be part of this new challenge blog and look forward to working with the rest of the Design Team! 
For my first card I used an adorable stamp that I received from my sweet blogging friend Gundi! This is just one of the images in the stamp set... isn't he cute?! It's stamped with Memento Black ink, colored with Copics and the papers are from MME- the Lost and Found Christmas Collection. I used a Avery Elle Die for the stitched rectangle and a Little B die for the sentiment. To finish it up I added a button with twine and sequins.

I hope you can join in our very first challenge and don't forget to stop by the challenge blog to see the gorgeous creations by the other team members!

Enjoy your day and thanks so much for stopping by!

I just love everything about this sweet holiday card of yours....the pretty greens, cut outs, sequins and down to the twine which I can possibly make to look that good.

Congrats on your new challenge blog and dt assignment. I was thrilled to be the first entrant sad I expect to be playing on a regular basis as I need that kick in the a** to get started on my Christmas cards. They're actually my favorites to make, but I haven't had Christmas mojo. Yours is truly cute, I Love the Tammy signature style of clever color combos and layouts...
