OK! This is my entry for the Moxie Fab Stretch Your Holiday Style Challenge - Stamping.
Let me tell you.. If you are looking for ANY inspiration for your holiday cards - you have to check out the submissions for the five different challenges... DROP DEAD GORGEOUS!

Originally, I was creating this card for the Fun & Cute Challenge.. But, since I have three stamps on here, I opted for the stamping challenge!!

Now, see that cute little bird? He is adhered to a charm fragment, and the fragment just so happens to have a hanger attached (it goes behind the card) so it can be an ornament, too!

I got the adorable Holly Bird stamp from Sue, over at Suzanne's Stamping Spot.. And, if you aren't familiar with her, go check her blog out! Boy that girl is talented!!!

Thanks for looking!

Only 3 more Moxie Fab Challenges to go!!!

Hi, Andi! Such a cute card! I like how you made a kind of holiday ornament from the Tim Holtz fragment! :-)

Jacqueline said...

Andi, it was so lovely to hear from you!
I am especially attracted to your beautiful colors on this gorgeous card!! Nice design!

Suzanne C said...

Love this card! The colors are so wonderful for a holiday card and this is so cute! Thanks for the kind words Andi. Caught me by surprise. :)

Amanda said...

This is adorable, I really like the colours you have used.

Tami B. said...

Thanks for the links and oh what great cards you've been making. Hadn't thought of those fragments as ornaments. Great tip.

Cath said...

Hey Andi! Thanks for entering the challenge!

Kelly Booth said...

Gwen said...

Good for you for taking on the Moxie Fab challenges! I had really hoped to play along....obviously that didn't happen, but at least I got to stamp again! That birdie is a sweet one and just love the trims you used. :>

Oh yea.....and I definitely do NOT have a green thumb! I have been wanting hubby to build some raised beds for a veggie garden for awhile now. Maybe veggie gardening (you know, for something edible that doesn't make me reach for the nearest bottle of Benedryl, like flowers do) will help motivate me to improve there. And I figure that if my son does the begging, it might get done sooner............not for an increased kidlet love, but because our son is WAY more persistant than I am!! lol :>

Love this. Great color combo.

Andi, you are so talented! Wow. I like to make cards, too, but mine aren't nearly that cute. Homemade is so much better than store bought and cheaper, too! Well, sometimes (LOL!)
