Merry Christmas As You See It

Life has been good but busier than normal the last couple of weeks.  As you may remember, every year around this time, I get geared up to organize a Christmas event at our church called, "One Night in Bethlehem".  We turn the church into a Bethlehem market place at the time of Jesus' birth and people take part in interactive displays, crafts and a drama is performed.  Add that to my already busy business life and time becomes precious!  It also flies by and so it is that Friday has rolled around again and it's time to show you another As You See It Challenge design, 008 this time.

Here's the sketch by the talented Amanda:

It has a little bit of a shabby-chic feel to it but not over the top.  Here's my take on the sketch:

  • In keeping with my retreat designing duties, I've again used DSP from the Winter Frost collection.  I love how it uses a lot the blue-greens we have currently:  Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Island Indigo and Pool Party.
  • I used the Perfect Pennants Bigz L die to die cut the two doily shapes in Coastal Cabana and Silver Foil.  Underneath those I added a Tea Lace Paper Doily folded just off of halfway for half-circle of slightly different lengths.
  • The stamp set is A Banner Christmas, and I also used the small snowflake from Snow Day, inked in Encore Silver Metallic Ink, on the Whisper White flag.  
  • See that blue rhinestone?  Yes, it's one of our Rhinestone Basic Jewels coloured with a turquoise Sharpie.
  • I used Bermuda Bay 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon to tie a little fork bow for the top.
That's all there is to it.  You could definitely make one like this!

Don't forget, there is a Mystery Hostess Contest on now.  Here's the Hostess code for it: H7CWVP3K
Add that code to any on-line orders you make and you will be entered into the draw to win all the hostess rewards for any orders that come in this week, extra entries for every $25 you spend.  And with 25 stamp sets at 25% off, there are going to be a lot!

If I can make my goal of selling 25 stamp sets during this week, for helping me do that, I will draw two more names to receive free stamp sets up to $25 in value!
