Merry Little Christmas...

I am always on the look out for circle stamps - I think they are so sweet, and I love making circle cards too.  So I was thrilled to see THIS cute Carina Gardner digikit released last week at twopeas.
I just love this "Merry Little Christmas" circle - especially the double layer of sentiment... I layered it over some pretty Jen Allyson paper and used my nesties to cut the circle.  I made sure I left space for stitching.  I added my fave Hero Arts acrylic penguin stamp. 


Details: HERE 
And this card is so simple - the dove is part of the stamp, so this makes mass producing Christmas cards easy. 

Supplies: HERE 
Hope you are all well - don't forget you have a few more days to enter my challenge. :)

Hi Lucy, another of those 'mouth dropping open' at how beautiful Lucy's cards are again moments! I agree, circle 'stamps' are hard to find, thanks for the heads up on these. Wish Santa would bring my circle Nesties BEFORE Christmas! Jo x
