Merry Christmas Holly...Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #271~Anything Goes


Welcome to Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #271~Anything Goes. One of our most popular challenges, we're sure to see a plethora of YOUR amazing inspiration filling the gallery!

So, for the record: no, I'm not finished with Christmas cards/projects (still making shaker tags for my niece and nephew's classmates...why I chose shakers, nobody knows, but...once started, must complete the task. Plus, they're kind of cute!). No, I've not mailed a single card as yet. No, I am not ready in the least! And, in some quirky way, that's part of the excitement of the season, isn't it?

Anyway...sharing one of a quartet of simple, easy-to-recreate cards I made, featuring Uniko products. Yes, the holly is covered with a wink of stella for some extra sheen and sparkle...

Off to carry on with my projects. How are your Christmas preparations going?  Bet you're further ahead than I am!

Looking forward to seeing your *Anything Goes* creations in the gallery

Thank you for dropping by!


  1. very cas and pretty card. Love the font on the sentiment, well done

  2. Love this crisp CAS beauty Carol. I was going to be so organized this year but due to one thing or another I'm chasing my tail as always! :)

  3. Lovely card, Carol. I like the CAS feel with the sparkle. It IS only the beginning of December, right? Still time to get things done. At least I hope so! My winter break starts on December 25th so no rest for the weary and that will definitely put a crimp in my available crafty time. I'll get done what I can. Your shaker cards are going to be adorable. So far you are completing a lot more projects than I am. I'm so happy for you! Keep up the awesome work! Hugs!

  4. Sensational card Carol. There's nothing more festive and cheery than a sprig of holly and your placement of it on this card is superb. It just adorns the gorgeous sentiment. thanks so much for sharing this with us at Less is More xx

  5. Hey mf! You ROCKED out this CAS card! That MC is a lovely font.

  6. I love this classy design Carol and that sentiment is gorgeous! Your shaker tags sound great too!

  10. Fabulous cas card Carol - just what you need me thinks. Love the simplicity and so stylish. I am lucky I can say I have finished my Christmas cards (outside) - now just need to add a sentiment and get them in the mail. Hope you will show us at least one of the shaker creations...pleeeese.

  11. Love this! Very crisp and CAS and lovely balanced composition xx

  12. This is beautiful in it's simplicity, Carol. I hate to tell you but my cards went into the mail on Monday. It's the earliest ever and not only that my house is decorated. That's a first because Scrooge usually wants me to wait until the week before Christmas.
