Merry Monday #98!

Hi Stampers! I hope you had a great weekend. I spent the weekend working on some wonderful projects for my granddaughter Kaitlynn's 6th birthday which is coming up at the end of this month. The three of us created some "Circus" themed projects as that is the theme of her party this year. Kaitlynn loves to craft with her Grammy and Mom. You'll get to see all of it after the 21st. I also created a card for our new challenge at Merry Monday  which is to create a Christmas card "Country Style" with stitching & buttons?

I haven't sewn on a card for quite some time now so I dug out my sewing machine for this one:

I added a sewn frame around the designer paper and added some countryish layers. Of course gingham is so country. The designer paper you see here is from the "Gingham Garden" pack. I added cardstock buttons cut from the "Sweet Buttons Embosslits Die":

And rick-rack from the "Tasteful Trim Die" along with gingerbread men from the retired "Scentsational Season" stamp set and framelits dies. I didn't get to use this bundle much when I purchased it and I just love it!
