Zombie alert!

I sure hope you weren't looking for a holiday card today! 

My daughter started binge watching Walking Dead...
and yes, she's a teenager..and ooh, no, I'm not going to start that series.
I watched a partial episode with her and I was screaming at the tv! haha...
Zombies have strange rules that govern their lives!

But I did get inspiration for this card...

I combined two sets from The Project Bin to create this card.

It's a card that only a zombie fan would enjoy!
The things we do for our kids.

I hope you are all preparing for the Christmas holidays!

Merry Christmas!!
Thank you for jingling on through the Card Maker/The Project Bin blog hop today!
We are really excited to share inspiration and ideas to keep you crafting through the holiday season.

I hope you came from Teresa Kline's blog.
To start at the beginning, check out the Card Maker Blog!

because of the lovely font and beloved scripture verses.

Christmas Blessings Tag Book
First up...a tag book made from a single piece of 12 inch decorative paper. 
When finished, this book measures 3 x 4 x .25 inches.  There are 8 pockets which you can tuck in tags and notes...or write down miracles and blessings in your life this year.  
A little keepsake like this that you tuck in with the holiday decorations 
will bring such happy memories to you each December has you decorate and remember the joy you felt in 2017!

Don't you love the font on this set!

Here I created a card out of two 4 " square coasters.  
Washi Tape (from Eyelet Outlet) was used to create a binding. 
It easily folds in half...and you have 2 large areas to decorate, stamp, collage and beautify!

The Heralding Angel stamp comes from The Project Bin's "Joyful Song" set...
and the star stamp is from "Maybe Christmas."

Here I used another sweet sentiment.
Gold and white are pretty trendy right now...
a bit of bling adds interest to this CAS card.

One family tradition we have as a family is to read the story of Christ's birth from Luke.
The sentiments from this set are main stage attractions!

All you need is your favorite embellishments and papers.
You too can come up with simply elegant greeting cards and paper crafting gifts for 
the loved ones in your life.

I hope you have a very joyful December...
and have a bit of time for crafting too!

One more stop now...
