Bah Humbug Challenge 35

Friday seems to have come around so quickly again this week (I blame the Bank Holiday) but anyway that means it's time for the Bah Humbug challenge which this week is 'sentiments or text' and they would like words to be the main feature. It so happens that on Monday I was persuaded to buy a pad of lovely vintage Christmas papers by Cart-Us so I really wanted to use some of it this week.  As well as backing papers there were also some pages of lovely old postcards etc and you will notice that the one I've chosen  actually ties in with the stamped sentiment.  This sentiment is on a set of seasonal words from Chocolate Baroque and it's one of my favourites - this was cut out with a Nestability label and I just added an ornate die-cut corner (Marianne die) and a border which was also from the paper pad, as was the background.


  1. Lovely card Val, boy you were quick off the mark. Have a lovely weekend. Hugs x ChrisB

  3. Love this card Val. You've used one of my favorite dies (the corners) and beautiful words, I think they sometime get neglected.

  7. I love the sentiment - am starting to see sentiment stamps in a different light thanks to CB stamps & examples like yours. Love the colours you used for this & the postcard is a lovely unusual way but totally on trend with Mail Art - hope that all makes sense.
