Trimmin' the Tree!

Good Morning All J I have been away from my craft room for a few days catching up on some rest but I am back and ready to go! Here I am with this week’s Merry Monday challenge which brings my number of Christmas cards made for this year up to 6 hehehe I am on my way!

So on Monday I got my sneak peak at the NEW Stampin’ UP! catalogue and can I just say this mama is beyond pumped about all of the fabulous new stamp sets, colours and tools that I will be able to bring home and share with you all!!! It is a good thing I have been saving up because my first order is going to be a BIG one J I was having a hard time trying to figure out what retiring items to sell and which to hang onto and after seeing the new cattie I am letting them all go!!!

My Challenge:

My Card:

I tested out a new technique for the first time on this card, the Faux Torn Mosaic. I did skip the last step which was to add some modge podge to smooth out the surface but I actually liked the look of having it slightly raised!

Thanks for stoppin’ by!


  1. What a cool look you have on this card Hayley, with the mosaic. Very cool!

    Great minds think alike....I used that plaid paper on my card also...I just love it!
