Peace and Joy


It is time for another The Three Musketeers post. We are ready to showcase the card we all created with the image that Kelly sent this month for Card #39!   All three of us sure have enjoyed the challenges every month and we hope that it continues for a long time!  I will be up next for the January challenge, so I better be thinking of what I want to ink up! Be sure to come back to see what we create!


For our December card, Kelly sent out an adorable snowman and woodland fox image by Stampendous. Kelly said she has fallen in love with woodland critters this year so when she spotted this stamp on a shelf in a store, she had to have it.  I hope Jeanette and Kelly like my card.

The snowman and the fur on his stocking have clear Wink of Stella for a bit of shimmer.  

 

Here is the inside of my card:


Please check out the other Musketeer's cards.  Here is a link to Jeanette's blog along with Kelly's blog.  I am sure you will not be disappointed and will see a couple of great cards!  They may post today, or it may be upcoming, so be sure to check out their blog for their card!

Star of Bethlehem


Here is my December Crafters of Faith card.  This is a great group that my friend Kelly started on SCS. This is our 12th month and Imke gave us this challenge:   Create a Christmas Card based on this scripture:  Matthew 2:10 When the Wise Men saw the star, they were filled with joy"   


I bought this cute stamp just a few weeks ago at the stamp show in Madison and knew it had to be inked up for this challenge.  I also added a star from the Year of Cheer embellishments on silver cord.



Here is the inside with a sentiment from the Night in Bethlehem stamp set along with another star:

I hope Imke, along the others like my card this month!  We are to post between the 7th and 10th of each month, so if you look on my sidebar, you may see other creations.  I know that there will be many posted in the COF thread on SCS too! I up for our January  challenge and so be sure to check back to see what I picked.

Christmas Gift Card Holder


This is my card for the November Challenge Your Stash group on SCS.  This is our 11th month of de-stashing!

The premise is to create a card or something else that uses only items that are in your own stamp room--nothing new is to be purchased.  The hostess each month posts their challenge to the group and the card is due to be posted on the 28th. Each person in the group creates their card with their own image, their own papers, their own embellishments with their own supplies--using up items from their own stash!  The card can be for any occasion and each person is encouraged to send the card on its way to someone so it can be admired.  It is a way for us to step out of the box a bit and create something that follows a challenge--isn't that what a challenge is supposed to be.  And--no money is spent as all items are to be already available in each of own stamping spaces.

Vickie posted our November challenge--Create a Gift Card Holder.

I have made a few gift card holders in the past and created this one with parts from two different ones.  The middle section that holds the gift card is made with the retired Stampin' Up word window punch and I added a belly band to hold it together.  I also used one of my Stampin' Up border punches on the edge--I think I had to blow off the dust!!!  That is really using some of my stash!


Here is the inside:



If you check some of the blogs on my sidebar, you may find others who have posted their cards today or in the next day or so.  There may be more posted in the thread on SCS, so you might want to check out the link here.  We also have a keyword for the SCS Gallery--it is CYSNOV.  You might see many cards there is you do a search.

I hope you enjoyed my card and I know I am excited to check out what my other hoarders, I mean stash reducers have made!  Thanks for stopping by today!  For December, Maggie is up and I cannot wait to see her challenge.  Be sure to check back to see what we create for the end of our first full year!
