Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Christmas Countdown

We are back with our newest  Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge and it is entitled "Christmas Countdown", a very appropriate title indeed!  This time round, the Sweet Stamp Shop is our sponsor, and the LEAD of the Christmas Countdown challenge will receive a $15 gift certificate to their store!


I used a stamp from their Packaged Pretty set.  It is a great set for Blog Candy give away notes, RAK notes, and some basic sentiments.

I a Deconstructed Sketches for my card and some delicious MME papers from their Merry Little Christmas pack.  Just love some of the non-traditional Christmas colours in this pack.  Plus, they remind me of candy, and since it is the "Sweet" Stamp Shop sponsoring our challenge, I figured it was a perfect match!  This sentiment just makes me smile as I can imagine the various happy dances of the recipients LOL!
