I'm excited and privileged to play along as Nina Brackett's Guest Designer!

All of the gorgeous cards from the entire team will be added to the StampTV gallery throughout the next few days with the tag cssjf1 (which stands for center stage spotlight jessica fick 1)

These sketches are also the sketch challenge for this week, so be sure to check out all the information in the discussion in the Challenge group over on StampTV Thursday morning (Nov 5). We'd love to see your cards with the sketch too!

My card features stamps from the Holiday Cheer Stamp TV kit and Vintage Borders (designed by Nina Brackett), along with Cranberry Tart Pure Luxury Cardstock and Deck the Halls Digital Paper Pack. The beautiful red sheer ribbon is also from the Holiday Cheer Stamp TV kit. I'm in LOVE with everything! I think this will be another of my Christmas cards this year.

Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy the HOP!
