My stamping group had a little Christmas get together on Sunday and we each brought a stamp set we no longer use for a little Dirty Santa game! You know how it works: everyone draws a number; #1 goes first and picks a wrapped present from the pile; then #2 picks either from the pile or "steals" from #1; and so on. I picked what I consider to be the BEST stamp set, which turned out to be 2 stamps sets - PTI's Merry Little Christmas and Background Basics: Christmas. I put on such a show and looked so pitiful that nobody stole my sets and I am so delighted because they totally rock!! I consulted the PTI website for ideas on how to use the sets and found
this beautiful card by Lisa Johnson using A Wreath for All Seasons and Background Basics: Christmas. I am thrilled by how mine turned out!! I got out all of my Christmas paper to see what color scheme would look best. I LOVE this older paper from Stampin' Up! You just can't beat striped for Christmas! I sent this card to one of my nice stamping friends who didn't steal my sets! :D I can't wait to create more beautiful projects with my new Christmas stamps!
