Stampin’ Up! “Floral Frames” Goes Christmas for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today for our hop we have a sketch challenge and/or a color challenge.  We had our pick,  do one of the challenges or, if we really felt the creative juices  flowing we could do both.  I forgot that this week was a combined challenge and already made my card from the sketch so I followed the sketch only.  Oh, but do I see a Alternate Monday card coming to mind…you will have to wait and see.

Here is the sketch:

    Have I told you lately that I love your cards. What a great use of the DSP and I never would have thought to use that set for Christmas. Thanks for the inspiration!

    • Stamping with Kristi says:

      thank you Karen. I love your cards too, I just can’t seem to figure out how to leave a comment on your blog.

    • Stamping with Kristi says:

      Thank you Julie. I was going to use the same stamp set but then my pre order came in and I had to use a new stamp set
