Using up the stash sitting around my craft area...

I realized over Thanksgiving, while I was cleaning, how much stuff I really do have for papercrafting. Not only do I have my Close To My Heart papers and stamps, blocks and inks too, but due to Kristen's wonderful generosity, I have more than I really know what to do with. I am on a mission to use up stickers, ribbons, flowers, chipboards and such to reduce my stockpile. See, when I get "current" stuff, I feel guilty just adding onto my pile!LOL!

Today, I am using Flair stickers to create 3 cards, one of which is on display here. The DP is flair, using Barn Red and Indian Corn Blue cardstock of CTMH. The challenges I am entereing this card in are:

1) Crafty 4 Challenges: punch happy. I used my new MS punch, double loops (for the edging on the BR c/s)
2) Stampin Sisters in Christ: "gift" on it. well, I have the word "gift"....LOL! I know, I am stretching it a bit!
3) Charisma Cardz: anything Christmas
4) Our Creative Corner: the sketch, which is always my starting point

Final details: glitter glue to outline the ornaments, embroidery floss for the strings, CTMH stamp sentiment, black ink.

Love your take on "gifts". Very creatively done! I like the overall look...the ornaments, sparkle, border. Thanks for taking the time to share with us at SSCC this week.
