Gingham Baubles:

Good morning all - here we are at Friday.  Too bad I am feeling a little under the weather - otherwise I would enjoy it a bit more, especially because Monday is a holiday here.

Now that it is August, I better pull up my pants and get cracking on the Christmas cards.  I've been making them all year, but only seem to have a handful.

I used one of my favorite freebies:  Bauble Freebie and paper pieced it.  Obviously I am back on the paper piecing wagon :)
Card Ingredients:  StampFairy digi, DCWV papers, Recollections cardstock, Martha Stewart Aquamarine Crystal and Peridot glitter, Queen&Co Twinkle Goosebumps, Recollections gems.   Tools:  sewing machine, EK Success Retro Flower punch, Martha Stewart stylus.

I made this gingham card for the following challenges:  Christmas Challenges - sketch (unfortunately their twist was not optional so I will not be entering my card, but would like to give their sketch credit), Paperplay - layers, Use Your Stuff - zig zags, Sweet Stampin' - Christmas.

As always, today is StampFairy's New Release Friday.  Meet Mimi Pumpkins:

Thanks for the visit and have a great weekend.
