Calendar Girls--Christmas Card

Welcome to another round with the Calendar Girls!

Who are the Calendar Girls? We are a group of bloggers who want to have a place where friendships blossom, creativity abounds, and encouragement prevails! In keeping with that dream, this blog group has been created so we will have a place to interact and enjoy being fellow bloggers. 

This month, our organizer and the phenomenal Jeanette posted the following:  November - Because we post on the 28th, the end of the month... and most of us will be in Christmas mode, since Thanksgiving will be over... how about if we post a Christmas card for our November posting? That should be easy, since we are probably all making a Christmas card or two anyway. I also think it might be fun to post a picture of our work desk/space with all of its creating clutter... you know, the Christmas cardmaking frenzy in all its messiness.

This card is actually a CASE of a card we made in October at stamp club—thanks Nancy!  We made it in shades of blue, with a different sentiment.  You can actually see the original card on my stamping desk. 

Image/Sentiment—Stampin’ Up Stitched Stockings and So Many Scallops

CardstockPTI White; SU Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, Silver Glitter Paper;

Ink—SU Cherry Cobbler

Accessories—SU Stocking and Scallop Punches, Snowburst Embossing Folder; Snowflake Punch; Rhinestone

Below are some pictures of my craft space:

 My Craft Table

 My Scor-Pal and Carl Cutter (Thnaks Debbie!)

My Stampin' Up Sets--and still not unmounted........................ Soon I hope!

 My rolls of SU ribbon and all of my punches

These are the shelves behind my desk with containers of brads, designer paper packs, drawers of ribbons on bobbins, box of Copics, drawers of buttons, glitter, Stickles, fibers/twine, etc. 
 Lots and Lots and Lots of Stuff!

Please check out the blogs of all of the Calendar Girls—there are 10 of us, so it might take you a bit. I am sure you will enjoy all of the Christmas cards. All of the blogs are listed on my left sidebar. Thanks for joining us!!!!!!!

WOW Barb, your space is awesome, I love the organization with the ribbons and punches!!!. Very nice card you made. Love the little stockings!!!

Oh!!! I love your card! I love your space! Everything is in order and easy to find (I dream of having that someday. LOL!) I, too, want a playdate! I'm still hoping someday we can make that happen, whether it is at 'Bux (to chat) or wherever.

I can't tell, and am quite curious - what are your punches stored in?

Your card is such a fun design. I love the four square kind of effect. I might have to CASE that idea.

I do have to ask, though........ who is this phenomenal person of whom you speak??? Surely not the Jeanette I know. LOL! (Thanks, my friend!)

Barb!!!!! You've been holding out!!!!

Look at your new workspace. Wow. I need to get some crafting items and some little L baskets!

Your card is just too cute. I love the layout and the embossing. I am going to have to CASE the layout sometime in the future.

Great job and thanks for sharing.
