Mod Squad Challenge

The Mod Squad Challenge this week is, Anything But a Christmas card.  My BFF Judy Woodland is the host and you really need to check out her BLOG.  She is so very creative and now she is using these stamps from Kitchen Sink.  They are all Multi stamp images and they looks so real.  I have had this one and thought I would use it for some of my Christmas cards, but that didn't happen.  I really wanted to ink it up, and when this challenge came along, I realized it didn't have to be a Christmas Card. 
Here is my card.
The stamp set is Winter Cardinals, and I used three different reds and three greens and a brown to stamp this. All GKD inks. Then I used a rectangle Spellbinder die to emboss the frame and added the sentiment and the pearls and ribbon from my stash.    The cardinal is fussy cut and place on the branch, also from the set. 

Well, I am off to visit my Son and DIL for Christmas.  They live about 2 hours away.  I am bringing lots of joy to them and their dogs, Sailor and Hoss.  Of course, my grand dogs have their gifts from Grandma too, along with home baked doggie treats.  I don't think you can soil them too much. 
Thanks for stopping by during this busy season.  I do appreciate it when you leave a comment. 
As my BFF Donna Phelan says......Merry Merry!  I'm Just stealing from her. 


  1. Oh, I just LOVE this!!! Especially the greeting! I have wondered how that stamp set looks, have debated about getting it. Now I might have to. I love your CAS design, with the white and then the red bird - really stands out. I also love the embossing with the die, I have not tried that, but it's so elegant looking. Great take on the challenge, thank you so much for participating this week at the Mod Squad Challenge
    Oh, and merry, merry to you!!!!!
