Funkie Junkie's 3rd tag of Christmas - with a Jane's Journal twist.

I have nearly managed to get up to date with my 12 tags for Christmas projects and managed to get #3 and #4 made on Saturday. Today I showing my #3 project. Click this link to see the inspiration tag over at The Funkie Junkie. There is still time to play along and it is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie on line store with some great prizes for the lucky winners.  The inspiration that I took from Linda's tag was the silhouette stamp, the stars are the colours. Here is my card

I made my backing card with a combination of Vintage photo, walnut stain and antique linen distress inks.

I remembered that I have some ancient silhouette Christmas wooden rubber stamps in my stash which are some of my oldest stamps. I stamped them using Versafine Black Onyx ink. Here are those sweet stamps in close up.

 I wanted to keep this card quite CAS (clean and simple) so I stamped some shooting stars using some stamps from my LOTV grunge Christmas postmarks set and set the centres with gold coloured star gems.

The sentiment is one of my newest dies from Cheery Lynn.

I would like to enter my card into these card challenges;

Crafts to Challenge you Christmas Festivities and what it means to me. My card makes me think of singing away in a manager at all the nativity plays which not only I took part in as a young child but my own children did too. I was always the angel Gabriel and my Dad made me amazing wings. My daughter was Mary once, something I never achieved and my dear son was always a shepherd with the obligatory tea towel head piece. Ahh such sweet memories.

I hope you are all enjoying  your weekend? I have to spend today at a course for work (I have scheduled this card to post and I will link up the challenges when I get home). To make up for it I have tomorrow off work to meet up with my 37+ weeks pregnant daughter. We plan to have a girlie day together, unless of course our soon to be born grandbaby has other ideas ;0) (Now that is a joke, we need to get at least 1 more week down the line, now that's Nana talking ;0)

Back soon,

Bye for now,
