Hi, Friends.....

I am here with a set of Christmas cards for the Winnie & Walter WCMD 2017 Challenges. You have all week to link up, so I hope you will join in the fun!!! Shay challenged us in her W&W WCMD Variations Challenge to make a set of cards using mostly the same supplies with some changes.

I used the stamp set featured in the Rerun Challenge, Winnie & Walter - Our Town, to make a little wintery church scene. I wanted a primitive, snowy look so I only stamped the scene one time to let the imperfections do their own thing! :) I switched out the layers, but kept to the red/black/white color scheme. I added a little white glitter for snow on the ground and a dazzling rhinestone for the sun.

Supplies used include:
Winnie & Walter - Our Town stamp set
Versafine ink in Onyx Black
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set (has scallops)
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set
Darice - Snowflakes embossing folder
American Crafts - WOW! Super-fine Glitter - White

Hope you enjoyed seeing this set of Christmas cards. I am way behind on making them, so I am glad to have a good excuse to make a few multiples!! Thank you for stopping by and leaving your sweet comments.
