Merry Christmas

Good morning all.

I seem to have solved the "resolving host" and crashing problems I was having with Google Chrome by making a new profile on the computer for myself....unfortunately the majority of pictures on everyone else's blogs are now not showing properly which makes life very difficult when trying to comment. Grrrr one step forward....I'll be bald shortly at this rate!!
Now shock wave keeps crashing and my printer heads won't align...I'm heading up the wall!!

A simple Christmas card to share today...slightly alternative again but I do love this splatter sentiment background!

Sentiment stamps are from STAMPlorations Holiday Artsy set...did I say I love this set! Ornament die is Spellbinders and the stamp was a magazine freebie. Stitched die from Spellbinders. Background die is from Impression Obsession and I've only partially cut it and inked the card base below it. Ribbon and gems from my stash.

Challenges entered:
Rudolph Days January - any Christmas card
STAMPlorations - sketch #26
STAMPlorations - anything goes challenge
The Corrosive Challenge - winter blues
Christmas Card Challenges - anything goes
Stamping Sensations - dies and punches

  13. Bummer on the blogger issues. Hope it gets solved for you quickly. We don't want a big hair loss! Just love the design details on this super card. The partial die cut is impressive with the pretty ornament as you've placed it. Love the Blue & white motif...and your splatter sentiment is to die for! You've got a good technique for that! Looks very artistic. (Mine would just look like a big blob-o). Terrific card. TFS & Hugs
