Distressed Christmas

Christmas is getting closer, are you ready? I enjoy making Christmas cards all year long, as well as listening to Christmas music (even during the summer). There's just so many amazing crafty supplies to limit them to a month or two. If I were really crafty, I'd find a way to use my Christmas stash for non-Christmas cards. Hmm, I think I just thought of a new challenge! Speaking of challenges, we have a fun one for you over at One Stop Craft Challenge. This week are featuring 'distressed Christmas creations'. Our sponsor is Fred She Said; have you worked with her images before? They have some great options. I was thrilled to be able to play with one of her decoupage sets. The coloring work was already done, I just had to cut the pieces, layer them up and add some bling. Hope to see you over at the OSCC.

Thanks for looking! Spicey Cat Chick =^..^=
