Don't get a chance to enter many challenges lately, but having my sweet 85 year old Mom living with us now has got me to thinking about how special this Christmas will be with her here to enjoy the family and great grandkids and was inspired to submit something. Here's my take on Christmas tags and mini cards for Caardvarks and Through the Window for Bah Humbug. The sponsor of Caardvark's challenge is JustRite Stamps who produces the most wonderful, quality stamps ever! The circled sentiment has been clear embossed and looks wet but didn't scan very well. Anyway, thanks for looking. Image is clickable for larger view.

Stamped sentiment JustRite Christmas Stamp Ensemble; Cuttlebug's Grace's frame embossing folder (LOVE it!) ; PP: Graphic45 LeRomantique & Cosmo Cricket Wanted Collection; Bazzill CS; Snowflake punch; Offray ribbon; Color Box Dark Moss ink & Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distressed Ink, Kaiser pearls, Clear embossing powder and vintage print.
