Merry Wishes -Unconventional Christmas Card

Recently I watched a TED talk by Hannah Brencher on “Love Letters to Strangers”.  Feeling inspired, I went to the website: and couldn’t stop reading!  I wrote my first letter to a stranger and signed up for the 12 days of Christmas letter challenge.  Today is letter # 3 to Rosemary who is battling lung cancer and in need of encouragement.  Her daughter mentioned that she likes pigs, so I took the challenge to make a Christmas card with a pig on it!.  The great thing about card making challenges is it gives you lot’s of ideas from sketches to themes to embellishments.  I Used the letter N from the bingo challenge and die cut my stamped images of pigs as well as snowflakes.  I used the color blue and silver, along with a silver ribbon and washi tape.
  My hope is that more card makers will take the challenge to write love letters to strangers globally.

The Artistic Stamper: Count down to Christmas
Love to Scrap: Christmas Bingo = Letter N
Stick it down: Sketch design
Sparkles: #22 It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
