Yankee, I loved seeing all your new Christmas cards.  I need to check out my Michael Strong stamps now.  I don't think I have any ornaments! 

Thank you for continuing to play.

Connie, those are beautiful.  I had to laugh that you only posted three of them so your sister wouldn't see five and figure out who was going to get them. 

I love the image with the lantern and cardinals. 

Thank you for playing.

You all are doing great! I need to get more done for the second half of July than I did the first half!

I made a slime line card.  I used my new Penny Back set I got for my birthday.  I wanted to use lots of them and that worked better in a slimline.  Used two pp.  cut circles out of the strip and turned it over to the white side
Less layers.  Stamped, embossed, colored with pencils, cut out, pop dotted onto circles.Added shiny ribbon and Nuevo drips and Crystal Accents.

So pretty, Nora.  I love the image. I have a soft spot for chickadees.  You did a beautiful job coloring that bird! 

I thought you made a Christmas card that was only stamped on the insert?  Where's that one?

Thanks for playing.

Hi Daria! 

I haven't even started this challenge yet, but tomorrow is the 25th, so I think I need to carve out some time!  Maybe even get a head start today.

Anyway, I have been following everyone else's Christmas cards and they are awesome!  I read your post that you are looking for ways to use your cross-stitched Christmas tags ... without seeing them, I found a layout that might work.  Ran across this video when I was surfing when I should have been crafting ;)

I think it's a cute layout.  I like the punched window, but in your case I think you could just lay your tag on top.  Or maybe you do want to frame it?  With the texture of the cross stitch, you may or may not want to use the little strip of embossed paper under the focal tag.

I think this could be a cute layout for any small Christmas image.  Take a look and see what you think.

Connie Stewart's video.  The card I'm referring to is the 3rd card in the video.  I think the way I'm linking it might start there?
