Photo Inspiration #193Hello crafty friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend filled with everything you love!  I’m sharing a little card I recently made for this week’s challenge at The Shabby Tea Room – ‘Gingham Country Christmas‘!

Debbie TSTR #193 (2)The Tea Room is sponsored this week by My Time Made Easy and I used the Gingham Candied Apple paper from the shop on the base of my card – LOVE!!

Debbie TSTR #193 (3)I stamped the presents and adorable little rocking horse using the Homespun Holidays stamp set and then die cut them with the coordinating Homespun Holidays Sweet Cuts die – easy peesy!  The sentiment was stamped onto a banner using the same set and then double mounted on a base of Kraft cardstock!  The tree was die cut from aqua glitter chipboard using a die from PTI and then I added some homespun cotton lace trim, burlap ribbon bow and a couple of delicious Rusty Jingle Bells!

Debbie TSTR #193 (1)Please be sure to visit The Shabby Tea Room to be inspired by the rest of the teamies gorgeous projects this week, and then I hope you’ll have time to give our ‘Gingham Country Christmas’ challenge a try for a chance to win an awesome prize package from My Time Made Easy!

I decided that I am going with an aqua, red and cream color palette for my main holiday card this year!  I adore these colors together!!  I have about 30 cards made … 30 more to go!  Off to get a couple more made …

Inspired by these lovely challenges: Merry Monday #84 – trees with bling; Word Art Wednesday #106 – anything; Festive Friday #21 – red/aqua/white; Ribbon Carousel #87 – holiday/celebration; There She Goes #234 – winter fun

Thanks for stopping by today … hugs – xoxox
