A Christmas Story...

Good morning everyone!

Today starts a new challenge at Fussy and Fancy and this time it's Annie's turn to host the challenge and she chose the fabulous theme...
Words!
So, she would like to see your wonderful sentiments, a favorite poem or maybe a funny phrase on your creation... so many possibilities!   
I knew immediately what stamp I wanted to use for our challenge... my new 'Christmas Story' background stamp from Penny Black! I love this stamp and think it's perfect for our challenge with all of the different Christmas words on it! :) It's stamped with VersaMark ink onto kraft cardstock and then dusted with a touch of brown chalk. The sentiment was cut with Little B dies and the adorable snowman was cut with a Sizzix die. The papers are from The Paper Studio and Jillibean Soups, both with words on them! I used a Poppy Stamp die for the tiny buttons and to finish it up I added a small punched heart and a raffia bow.

  Our sponsor is Live and Love Crafts so make sure you stop by the challenge blog for the prize details and to see the gorgeous creations by the other team members!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
