It is almost impossible to believe we are up to the 10th week at 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style. The challenge is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique. For week ten, Linda created the tag below. I have to tell you, this really took me back to my childhood. My dad use to wrap the stand our tree stood on with brick paper and the brick on Linda's card just reminded me of my childhood instantly!
For my own card, I was inspired to use a brick embossing folder to incorporate brick in my own card. I also included the number 25 and a scrap of cheese cloth as inspired by Linda's tag. I was also inspired to select a vintage replica art image and in place of icicles, I decided to frost the top of my card with a portion of paper lace that I purchased at The Funkie Junkie Boutique some time ago. Some kraft and green striped paper, also from The Funkie Junkie Boutique, and a couple of snowflakes and vintage buttons complete my card.
On a personal note, I am home again, after being out of town for three weeks while my husband under went some medical treatment. It is so good to be back home. We are hoping he feels better soon and that the treatments are successful. Thank you to each of you who have sent kind wishes of encouragement our way the past few weeks. Best wishes, Yvonne
