Ho Ho Ho

I can't believe the Christmas season is already here. To celebrate today I choose to use one of the birds from the Branch Birds with the Santa Accessories. I always love the animals from Doodle Pantry. The faces just make me so happy and this bird surely does that. I'm stepping out of my comfort zone of my 5.5 X 5.5 inch size cards and made my first Center Step card. I had a blast doing it too! At the Come and Get It challenge that is what they wanted to see this week. I just about passed it up and I'm really glad I didn't. They are really easy to do so give it a try this week.
At CRAFT this week they wanted to see an unusual Christmas card. That is one reason I choose this summer bird image and thought it would be perfect to color him the summer green color. At Stampin' Sisters in Christ they wanted to see a bird. Stamptacular Sunday challenge they wanted to see a Christmas project. Then finally over at 2 Sisters they wanted to see any holiday. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!

Sarah, your birdie makes such a cute Christmas card. I love the "fur" on the Santa hat - it looks so real! Now that you've said the step cards aren't hard, maybe I'll be brave enough to give one a try this week...hmmmm.

This is spectacular. I love centre step cards. You're absolutely right, they are not hard to make at all. So why don't we do it more often?? Love the sparkly colours and that doodle pantry bird just pops right out of the card. Such lovely effect. Thanks for playing at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge and good luck. Hope to see you back sunday for another challenge. Bettina xx
