Creative Belli-holes

Good Morning! Looky, I made a Christmasy card today! My first one since Christmas 2009! I'm still not feeling it, Christmas seems sooo far away! Although we did have the woodstove burning yesterday to take the chill off. I even cooked a roast on it!!! lol It's been so damp & dreary!

Anyhoo....Today, we have a new Creative Belli Challenge for you! Let's dig out those hole punches and make some holes in those fabulous creations!!!

Stamps: Sew Many (halen in wreath)
sentiment-SU! so many sayings
Papers: SU! cs & K&co glitter DP
Ink: Copics/Prisma markers
Other: floss & button from stash,
paper piercer for faux stitching.

Isn't Halen hanging in that wreath adorable?? Our sponsor for the next 2 weeks is Sew Many Cards! And they're giving 5 digi stamps to the winner! woohoo!!

Since this is my first Christmas card of the year, this is my first opportunity to join in Sparkle's Christmas challenge! I was trying to convey a quilt-like card to compliment "Sew Many Cards", not sure that idea translated correctly! lol My hole punching is in the form of faux stitching! You can fill your punched holes with brads or eyelets or just use your paper piercer, like I did!!!
Have fun with it and come play with us!

Creative Belli Challenge #91~ punch some holes!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
Take care!
Blessings to you!!!
