CCAYR Inspiration Post

Here is my 3rd post as GD for Christmas Cards All Year Round this month and though some of us are probably not into doing Christmas cards with spring here, it's never too early get a head start on making those many cards we need for the holidays.

The card is an oval shape cut out of CM Cranberry card stock, stamped and gold embossed using a stamp from Our Daily Bread Designs.  I've added poinsettias from Wild Orchid Crafts and tiny green bows made with ribbon from my stash.

The challenge this month is to use an oval on your projects and ribbon.  I hope you will play along with us and enter this fun challenge at CCAYR.

Thanks so much for stopping by and if you'll leave me a comment I'll be sure to pop on over and see what's new with you and your blog.  Have a wonderful weekend!
"Hugs" Carol (Granny)

Hiya Carol, Thanks for popping by and for you kind words. You are always so supportive and defo deserve the BFB Award! You are a star!!! I love your card and the canberry colour is so scrummy!! It does seem really weird making christmas cards at this time of year but it certainly makes sense and takes the pressure off when christmas does come around. I'm going to have a go at this challenge too. How many challenges do you design for? You are certainly a talented crafter & blogger. I am proud to follow you friend, Hugs Annie xXx
