It’s Christmas!



Papercraft Business Challenge is taking Dec. off


Happy December first! The first of the month means Papercraft Business Challenge should have a new challenge for you! But, life got a bit crazy for several of us. We will be back with a new challenge in January.


I had already made up my sample and written my blog post for December, so I decided I would still show you that card. Don’t forget to come back and join us in January for our next challenge.



I love layers on my cards. I adore layering dies, and add to my collection often. I’m a geek, I know and it’s ok! Often I mix up my layers by using different dies for each layer. For todays card I used three different layering dies, along with one to make the snowflakes and one for the sentiment.


Yes, yes I know….another Oddball. But hey, the point of this blog for me is to show you things I like. I happen to like Oddballs! Their eyes feel so expressive to me. I am always open to suggestions if there is a stamp set you would like to see me color! Pop down to the bottom of the post and “drop me a note“.


Don’t you just love his jaunty chapeau?
