Pieces of Christmas

Pieces of Holiday WishesHere’s a pretty easy Christmas card for you today.  I used up some scraps of designer series paper for this one, and let the pretty sentiment be the focal point of the card.  The most time-consuming part of this card was trying to carefully color the sentiment with my two markers — some of those swirls get awfully close to the words and I wanted them to be different colors.  It seemed like a good idea before I started.  🙂

Have a great Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps:  Christmas Lodge
Ink:  Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler

A Tall, Shiny Tree

I wanted to play along with the challenge at The Paper Players site, and I’ve been wanting to use the tree image in the Christmas Lodge set because it is so detailed and just beautiful.  I thought the challenge and the stamp were a perfect match.

I embossed the tree with Pewter Stampin’ Emboss Powder, and it looks so pretty and shiny in real life.

Have a great Thursday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas Lodge

This isn’t exactly a new stamp set, but I do love it!  I think the images are beautiful and the sentiments are just as lovely.

I hope you have a good Friday!  Today has to be a better day than yesterday with its flat tire, sick child (poor thing) and endless child chauffeuring duties for the other two children (which always happens when you have a sick child and a flat tire).  Whew!  I’m ready to move on to the weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!
