First, of many, Christmas Cards

Since I'm new to blogging, I'm so excited to spend these holidays with all of you creative card-making friends!  Is it too early for Christmas cards? Nah!  A friend commissioned a set, so I must get to it!

Today, I'll be dusting off some of my older designs, and making them current.  I'm delighted to bring out some of my former favorite Papertrey Ink products.  Their Layered Postmarks Holiday set will continue to be used for years to come as I adore vintage postcard prints. What's new?  I finally got the Seeing Stars dies!

For today's card I used MFT kraft, and Primitive white cardstock; a Cuttlebug embossing folder; PTI Poppy ink with the stamp set, star dies, and twine; Hero Arts Newspaper background stamp with SU Crumb Cake ink, and Wplus9's 'Joy' from the Seasonal Sentiments die set I love so much.*

It's a bit more country than I usually rock and roll =]
*Sadly, I've still not found my darling heart or snowflake die for this set =[

I'm stepping out on a limb today and entering the $100 a Day challenge contest at Scrapbook.com!  What have I got to lose?  Oh, oh.  Enter Mick Jagger in my head.

I haven't thought of it, Katie... in fact, I'm not sure how to do that? =/ Thanks for suggesting it though!
