Wrapping paper on a card

Sunday, January 3, 2010

Well, here it is only a week past Christmas and I've got a Christmas card for you.  It's time to get cracking on next year's cards.  My card is of course for Sparkle's weekly Christmas card challenge that she does on Sundays.  I also was intrigued by this week's Everything but the Kitchen Sink challenge, which is to use wrapping paper.  That's where the main background came from.  A roll of Christmas wrapping paper.  How fun is that? 
***Supplies***
Stamps:  CTMH

Other:  MS border punch, wrapping paper, CTMH twill ribbon

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for all the comments left yesterday about my 2010 goals.  It is kind of a duanting list but I'm anxious to make it all happen.  I hope you have a great Sunday.  After church, we'll be going to friends for dinner, so that should be fun.

You are SO clever! I love the wrapping paper that I purchase (I guess that's why I buy it!) and most of it could translate into a card - what a great idea!

Hugs!
