Holiday Greetings 2011! PPA 124




 
The Paper Players recently had a challenge to use a non-Christmas stamp to create a holiday card.  With that in mind I created this card for PPA's sketch challenge using the typewriter from a brand new set called You're My Type. Makes me think of someone just sitting down to type out the annual Christmas newsletter.  Someday I may just do one myself..........after I get signed releases from family members so I can write the good stuff :)

Haha, beacuse the good stuff makes for a fun holiday newsletter! Lol! Love this stamp set...it's on my list. But adding the flourish and the ruffled trim makes me want it that much moe. Very pretty, Linda! :)

Awww, I love this! Great use of a non-holiday stamp and your greeting is absolutely perfect. Love the black jeweled flourish--gives that perfect holiday sparkle. I just unwrapped my pre-order with this set in it and you've inspired me to ink it up! FAB card, my friend. ((hugs))
