Hi Everyone! Well, Christmas is less than 2 weeks away and I still can't believe it. Doesn't it seem as though the days between Halloween and Christmas go by in a flash? It's the same with the days between the last and first days of school. Then there's winter...Here in Michigan the months of January thru March seem to last forever. It's so cold and snowy and feels like the temps are below zero every day. I guess that why we appreciate Spring so much!
Anyhoo, I finally made it into my studio for a short bit this afternoon. I've been working on year-end financials for our business, along with the usual month-end stuff. That along with the holidays and birthdays has left me with no time to craft. I managed to color a Christmas image in bits and pieces here and there. I finally finished it with a simple background last night while my son was in the bath tub.
I know a lot of you are done with Christmas cards, but I feel like I've only just begun. Probably cause I have 'only just begun'! I will probably continue with Christmas and Winter cards through January and February because it'll be so cold and snowy here. I'll be working in some Valentine projects as well.
Well, enough chit chat...here's my card :-) I hope you like it!
This little sweetheart is #3092 Tucked Tilda from Magnolia's 'Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection'. She's currently available at Magnolia-licious, along with the rest of the gorgeous collection. I tell ya, I think Christmas and Winter stamps are my absolute favorite! And this collection is tops. I hope you'll check it out and get your order in quickly so you have time to make some Christmas cards and tags before the big day. Magnolia-licious ships very quickly so you definitely still have time. The cute little sentiment is from a local stamp show that I attended last summer.
The image was colored with Copic markers and cut out with a SB die. All of the ribbon and lace is from Really Reasonable Ribbon. The green ribbon is from last years Christmas collection pack. If you haven't checked out their monthly Ribbon Club you should. You get a pack of ribbons monthly that are perfectly coordinated to the relevant holiday or season. And it's very reasonably priced. To top it off, you can cancel your subscription at any time so there really isn't any risk. Check it out HERE! This month they have a beautiful white collection pack that's perfect for New Year's projects. Anyway, the silver corner pieces are from WOC and the bells are from Michael's. The large sparkly white snowflake in the upper left corner is from KaiserCraft and is available in a set at Love To Stamp for only $3 per pack. I just love these! I covered this one in white crackle paint and then gave it a coat of stardust Stickles. It's absolutely GORGEOUS!!!
Don't forget to get in the running for my Little Darlings Giveaway! It runs til the end of the day on 12/14.
That's all I have for today. Thank you so much for stoppng by! I hope you'll leave me a little comment to let me know that you were here :-)
Have a Very Merry Christmas Everyone!!!
Love and Hugs,
