All right, now that we have gotten the formalities out of the way I will show you what I came up with!! For my card I went the Christmas route, I don't know about you, but I am always late getting started on my Christmas cards, so I thought I'd better get in gear and start this week. ;D;D
For my card I've used all but one newly released set from Our Daily Bread Designs, just went for it! :D:D
To keep with the requirements of the challenge I created the stickpin and dyed the seam binding. For the seam binding I used Hug Snug chalk white seam binding and spritzed it with Maya Mist in I believe Avocado (sorry, but the sticker with the color came off, so I am not 100% sure).

Well, this is it for me for today! Since the temperatures went way down, I think I'll hit the yard for a while and get rid of some of the weeds that have been growing like nothing I've ever seen while the monsoon was going on. I'd rather be stamping, but we've gotta do what we've gotta do, right?
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I love reading your comments and hope that you've enjoyed your visit!
Hugs and blessings,
(Sorry, but Blogger is giving me some trouble with my signature :C:C)
