Non- tradition Christmas cards for fun!


The wonderfully talented France Papillion is the new" hostess with the most-est " at the dt blog for Stampotique...here is what she has to say.............
"As Christmas is coming closer, it's sad to see how most of the non Christmas themed stamps are neglected! So, how about making a Christmas card, with non traditional stamps?
This might take you out of your comfort zone, but there's help: music! Put some Jingle Bells on and you'll see Christmas in just about any stamp! Have fun!"

This was really a fun challenge for me since I tend to be pretty serious about my Catholic Christian faith and I send mostly religious cards.  This card I made is for some very old friends of ours who my hub and I have shared many laughs with throughout the years...   :)  AND YES..France...I had a blast making it!

I used "sick cat" by Kira Nichols with a little paper piecing and the mini and reg ornament cubes by Daniel Torrente.

Looks a little like Christmas "Stampotique style" uh?  lol   Want another smile today?  Check out what the other girls on the dt did .. Challenge I am in for: Pile it on challenge blog= pile on the embellishments
       Next I just gotta show ya ..dd no. 2 who just got married last New Years eve turned 28 yesterday..ofcourse I had to make her a card....she was only 5 yrs old here....
I ALWAYS try to make one using one of her old pics...   :)  Just some painty scraps and a tag to make this one and she loved it!  I am so proud of her today...gotta brag...
Happy Birthday Hollyanne.....LOVE YOU MORE THEN LIFE.....   YO MAMA!!
