Merry Christmas, Little Bird

Top 3 Pick at Crafty Ribbons

Coffee of the Day - Maple Fudge

My post is late, but it is here just the same for the Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Extra Challenge. sorry about that. :(  not feeling well at the moment, so doing my best to get caught up on blog posts...

anyhow, as always, we are sponsored by the wonderful Bugaboo Stamps. I do hope you will join us in getting a head start on your Christmas cards!

I used the adorable Skinny Bird Christmas Candy Cane image on my card along with papers from the Basic Grey Aspen Frost collection. the doily was sprayed with glimmer mist to turn it that lovely shiny red.

a red chevron mini bag holds a tag tied with dusty olive seam binding. I plan to add a gift card to the tag before I mail this out. the tag is the perfect size to hold a gift hard adhered with glue dots. :)

poppy red checkerboard satin ribbon wraps around the card's edge into a fluffy bow also tied with red burlap string. same red burlap string also ties one of the vintage buttons.

come join the fun with us at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Extra Challenges! :)
and thanks so much for stopping by!  Jennifer
