Bah Humbug Challenge 4

The challenge this week at Bah Humbug is 'an oldie but a goldie' - to either use a favourite item which you use a lot or something which was perhaps once a favourite but has been neglected so really plenty of scope this week - thanks ladies.  This card is made using a set of Tim Holtz stamps which I bought the year before last because I liked them so much and I really cannot believe that they didn't get used at all for cards this Christmas just gone. I suppose it is yet another sign that I have way too many stamps!!  The reindeer was stamped with black soot distress ink and clear embossed; the snowflakes were stamped with versamark and also clear embossed; trees were stamped using pine needles DI.  I then sponged the card with Adirondack denim ink.  I resisted the urge add a greeting as I think this image really speaks for itself.


  1. Beautiful card, love it and beautiful stamping and colours. Hugs x ChrisB

  3. Lovely card Val, great minds think alike as you will see when I post my card!.


  4. Oooooh Val! How could you SAY such a thing? Ann will have your guts for garters if she hears you say you have too many stamps - THERE'S NO SUCH THING LOL! I really do like this beautiful reindeer stamp - so very elegant. Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug! and also a HUGE thank you for the kind get well messages - very much appreciated especially when the pain is bad and spirits are low. Hopefully I'll be able to enjoy a gentle 'dabble' again soon.
