Merry Monday Christmas Words

Hello Stamping Friends.  It's Merry Monday time again.


Sue picked our challenge this week.


I didn't get to Pixies Snippet Playground last week
so I'm going over to see if Parsnip is still wearing his bunny ears.


After cutting the letters with The Timeless Type Sizzlits (retired),
I used some peg stamps from Rubber Stamp Tapestry.
They're a small company not far from us.
I love their little stamps and they're so easy to use.

I used 2 different leaf stamps and one of berries to decorate the letters.

The letters are placed on a piece of Cherry Cobbler ribbon
from the last Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog.

This card measured 3 1/4" x 6 1/4".

I hope you'll make a Christmas card with Christmas words
and come join us at 

The design team has outdone themselves this week.
I can't wait for you to see what they've done.

Thanks for the visit.

Enjoy!

Ooh, I love this beauty. It makes a bold statement with the middle strip. I would love to have Rubber Stamp Tapestry close to me. I have some of the peg kits/sets that I bought from my lss and just love them.
