OCS September Challenge - Christmas

Well it is the 1st of September and that means that there is a new Challenge over at One Crazy Stamper and this month we are celebrating CHRISTMAS!!!  Today and each day for the month on the OCS Blog myself and the rest of the team will be sharing our Christmas projects all month long using the newest release from High Hopes stamps!  I hope that you will visit the OCS Blog for daily inspiration!!  Now is a good time to get started on your Christmas card stash and enter into this month Challenge for your chance to win some of the amazing new High Hopes Christmas stamps.

Here is my card that I made to show you in hope to inspire you to join in this month....
I thought that I would be a little creative this month for my first Christmas card to show to you - I used the awesome new  High Hopes, Santa & Rudy Block and made it into a gift bag with added tissue.  It was so fun to create this card that I think I may repeat the idea on others too!
