My Christmas Card Stash is Low Blog Hop!

Welcome to the My Christmas Card Stash is Low Hop!

It is our sincere hope that this helps to inspire you to get working on those Holiday cards early so as to reduce a little of the stress felt around the season!

Every year I stress and stress the closer it gets to the holidays because it seems that no matter how much I plan to work on them I never have the time! Well this year I'm starting really, really early!!

There will be 2 blog candies for this hop.

There will be a stash prize given out randomly to 1 comment from all the blogs. So the more blogs you comment on, the better chance you have of winning!! You will have until Tuesday the 26th at 11:59pm CST to comment. I will announce the winner here on Wednesday morning.   

The second prize will have a little more work for you to enter. We're going to have a little challenge for you to enter. 1st you will need to stop and comment on every blog. 2nd you will need to create a holiday card/gift tag/general gift giving paraphernalia and enter it at the inlinkz here on my blog. You have a week to enter and you can enter up to 3 NEW projects. The prize for this challenge is:

Now for my project! I made this card because it was a card I was going to make this past Christmas but never found the time. I had already inked the background for it I just never colored the image or did anything to put the card together.

For this I used:
The image is Christmas Carols from The Paper Shelter.
They are colored with Copics.
The background is inked with Peeled Paint, Pumice Stone, and Barn Door and then sprayed with Perfect Pearls Pewter.
The sentiment is Mae Sunshine Designs and from the set you could win in the Challenge!
Inked with Memento Tuxedo Black.
The edges of the EK Success label punch are inked with Festive Berries Distress Ink.
The crinkle ribbon I made with Peeled Paint Distress Stain.
The flowers are Recollections.
The pearls are from an Etsy store, SammyBoutique.
