This is the second card I started with my mom and finished the day after!!

All the patterned papers came from the Close to my Heart: Moonlight Paper Pack and the cardstock is Bazzill Spring Willow Medium cardstock.

The orange rhinestones are from KaiserCraft. 

I used CTMH's Backdrop-Charmed, Spellbound Cricut Workshop Holidays & So Grateful stamp sets with CTMH Autumn Terracotta, Sweet Leaf & Smokey Plum Ink. 

There is still space available at our Charity Stamping Pajama Party. For more information, please go to  DAT'S Scrapbooking's blog or email my mom, Donna at

Christmas Music Card

Today mom & I spent the afternoon scrapbooking/card making. I made this card and almost completed another card before supper.

All the patterned papers came from Authentique's Collection: Festive 6 x 6 Bundle Paper Pack and the cardstock is Bazzill. Due to the flood, mom & I don't have our Bazzill swatch book to know which brown cardstock I used.

The buttons, twine & wraphia is from my stash, the beads are from Unique Crafts on Prospect Avenue and I used an EK Success border punch on the inside.

I used CTMH's Christmas Love & Sweet Music stamp sets with CTMH Black Ink. To distress the edges I used CTMH Holiday Red & Olive inks.

Don't forget about our....
