Heart of Christmas for The Paper Players

Greetings, everyone! I must admit, I am sitting behind my keyboard today yawning and slowly sliding lower into my chair. The days are getting shorter, and I think I'm getting ready to go into hibernation. For the last few days, all I want to do is sleep!  Does anyone else have that problem this time of year?  Despite my sleepiness, I was able to put together a nice quick project for a challenge for you today.

Ann over at The Paper Players came up with a great sketch this week for their challenge. I knew right away what stamp would fit perfectly inside the rectangle. I picked a package of designer paper for the flags, and then the rest of the card fell into place.

I used markers to color the image on the stamp in two different colors. What a beautiful greeting; just a little embellishment is all that was needed to finish this card off. This was super easy and fast to put together, a great card to mass produce for the holidays.

What a great Christmas card - love how you've used the embossing folder with the dsp strips layered over the top. Thanks for playing along with the Paper Players this week!

Congratulations, Sandy! It is well-deserved and a tiny bit amusing since you made it when you were so sleepy!!
