 J is for Journey - I have made my first Christmas card of the season. It is even a manly one. Yea me!!!! Only another 49 or so more. LOL

The challenge at Alphabet Challenge Blog is J for Journey. I bought this really awesome masculine stamp set by Hot off the Press at the Arlington Scrapbooking convention that I went to a few weeks ago.The set has this awesome truck and the tree that I embossed of the round element of the card. The celebrate was also in the set.
I used lots of my new toys on this card. The gold circles on the truck cardstock is made by dipping a dotted stamp in Sunflower Sparkle Perfect Pearls mist. I used the mist on the stars as well. The stars were cut with a CM punch.

The red is a MS punch and I edged all the papers with my new gold acrylic paint dabber.

My DP is from a paper block that I recieved at a Christmas party with my Scrapbooking group a few years back.

The beaded wire was from the holiday shop at Hobby Lobbly.

The stars recieved some Holly Stickles on the edge.
