Christmas Card without a Christmas Stamp

Hello and thank you for visiting!  I have a quick share for a Christmas card, but my house stamps are not Christmassy.  I just paper pieced with the scraps of an older Christmas paper pad.  


Supplies:  Just for Fun Rubber Stampes Collaged Row Houses, Sentiment Sheet 1, Snowflake block, Versafine Black ink, various paper scraps, Stickles Glitter glue.  

I would love to play along with these challenges:
Pixie’s Crafty Workshop Snippets Challenge  #324
SimonSaysStamp Wednesday challenge - Anything Goes


Thanks again for your visit!  You can find me on facebook or pinterest, too.

I agree with the posters above. The colours and the setting scene you created makes your houses look Christmassy. The snowflake background is perfect here.

Thanks for taking part in the April Rudolph Days Challenge.
