White Christmas

I'm dreaming of a White Christmas....


well, not really, but Giovana is!


StampTV has started a new Christmas Challenge and Giovana Smith is the hostess for the first three months. Her very first challenge was to create a white Christmas card (it could have a touch of another color).


I immediately thought of Melanie Muenchinger's 'Festive Frame' stamp set. It is stamped with Versamark Dazzle, and then heat embossed with gold. The card base has been dry embossed with the Cuttlebug Dotted Swiss folder. This is one of those classic sets where less is more! You simply cannot make an ugly card with this stamp set!


Hope you are having a wonderful Tuesday. Please send up a prayer today for DD, who had her first ever root canal this a.m. She's pretty shaky and swollen, but okay other than that. She, like her mother, has an insane fear of dentist visits!



As always, thanks so much for stopping by! I am off to visit your blogs, and see what you've been up to, and then work on the kitchen.



Hugs and lots of blessings!



Patti J.



Food for thought:

Church bulletin blooper: Tuesday at 4:00 p.m., there will be an ice cream social. Will ladies giving milk, please come early.

Oh Patty - your embossing makes for a beautiful Christmas card - coupled with the white cardstock, you have an outstanding creation.

I hope your daughter is doing ok after her root canal. Those are never fun. =(
