In the Swing for Christmas


Good Morning. Hope you're having a good Tuesday. Tonight is our Christmas party for our group at my local stamp store. We each bring a dish and enjoy dinner together. And we each bring a stamp related $10 gift to exchange. We also make three Christmas gift tags and put them on a tray then pass the tray. Each time it is passed you can take one tag until all the tags are gone. So each person gets to take three tags home that someone else made. I'm looking forward to seeing my stamping buddies.
Today's card is for the Penny Black challenge. The challenge this week is the sketch. I loved working with this sketch, it was so much fun. The fun papers are from Me and My Big Ideas Christmas stack. This Penny Black stamp is one of the new unmounted Slapstick stamps and they stamp like a dream, I love them. I decided to use a lot of pink on the card for a change for Christmas. The border punch of pine boughs that runs across the center of the card is by Martha Stewart.
Have a great Tuesday. Thanks for stopping by. Until tomorrow..............
