H2H Virtual Holiday Card Exchange

Today starts the last challenge of the year with Heart 2 Heart as we are all taking a much deserved break for the holidays. The challenge is to create and post a holiday card of any kind wishing everyone who stops at your blog a very Merry __________ (fill in the blank).

Here is my card, with warm wishes for all of my online stamping friends:

I grabbed my Bundled Buddies set and stamped the trees with White Daisy ink on kraft cardstock to create my background. The animals were stamped with brown ink onto kraft, colored with Copics and cut out. I added a couple of lines of machine stitching to the background to ground my trees and then added the cutie patootie animals with some foam tape for dimension. The simple sentiment was stamped in the lower corner and everything was mounted to a Moonstruck (or it might be Outdoor Denim) base.

I hope you will have a chance to play along with us and post a holiday card you've created using Close To My Heart products. This challenge will remain open until the end of the year and we will be back Jan. 9th with a whole new year full of challenges! Be sure to check out our DT call over at the H2H blog too!

Merry Christmas!

That stitching makes for such great "snow!" Mary, it continues to be such a pleasure to "work" with you- from "back in the day" at Virtual Convention to now with the H2H Challenge blog. Many blessings to you and yours as you celebrate this Christmas season!

Mary, I like the stitched hills in the background and the trees stamped in white-oh how wintery!

Mary, May many many blessings come your way in 2012. I have really enjoyed being on the DT at H2H. It will be fun to participate each week as a player. Hope that is OK?
Looking forward to the new challenges and meeting all the new DT members. Thank you soooo much for all that you do for us.
