FTTC144 Jingle All The Way....

Happy Tuesday!!!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend??? We have decorated our house for the upcoming holidays...I know it's crazy, but we'll be super busy the next couple of weeks since Sarah made into the Middle School basketball team and their starting their first game today, Rebecca is still playing Tennis and our little Miriam is starting her basketball schedule this upcoming weekend. Before we know it the new year has come...LOL!!!

Anyway, not to bore you with my crazy life....*wink*...I thought I'd share my card for this weeks Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC144. Tammy is our hostess and she has challenged us to a fun *FLAG IT* theme !!! Use "flags" in your design... whether it's a flag image, or a sentiment flag, or pennants! Whatever YOU think represents a flag!



I decided to ink up my Patriotism on Parade Stamp Set and made it into a Christmas card. The sweet image was inked onto the PTI Tag with Memento Black. The DP is from the BasicGrey Nordic Holiday Collection and embellished the card with a Red/Cream Stripe Ribbon, a matching Button with some Red String, three little BellsZVA Flourished Pearls and a punched our MS Border on the bottom.

Hope you will come and join us this week?!? Don't forget to check out the rest of the team for their ideas ~ Cindy, HeatherTammyBeate, Mona and our November Guest Designer Miriam Napier.

Thank you so much for stopping by again. Hope you'll have some time to play along with us???

Those swirly pearls must be heaps cheaper in the US! They would add at least $5 to the price of a card here in AUS! But ... talk about gorgeous! What a beautiful design! And ... it wouldn't be the same without the pearls! Hugs xx
