Sorry for not being a good blogger, between my new class, work and trying to make over a 100 holiday cards I haven't had time to blog. My class, work and cards are done till after Christmas so I have no more excuses. I will try to make up for lost time this week.
I stamped the winter cabin with Distress Ink- festive berries. I think it is the best holiday red around. Pair it with the Distress ink- mowed lawn and you have a winning holiday combo. I added some crystal stickles to the edge of the roof and the tree line. it is perfect since when it dries with a bit of a red glimmer.
I had to try the card in another color to, so out came the blues.
It is more subtle. What do all of you think. The bold red and green or the soft blue?
I hope you are taking time to get started on your holiday projects and that I will inspire you over the next few weeks.
Sorry, I have been such a bad blogger. It isn't as if I haven't been creating. I am on my holiday high, so I am stamping like crazy. I think it is just I have been creating and not photographing or blogging. I will try to change that as I have a backlog of cards to share.
I went out on black Friday to all the craft stores for some the crafting sales. I got this Martha Stewart punch- 30% off and I just love it!! I have been using on all my cards. It adds that extra special something to the edge of a card. The snow dudes are from a older Paper Smooches set- Swanky Snow dudes. I love the short fat snow dude, he reminds me of me!
On a completely different note, I got a new job. (another reason why the last few weeks have been nutty) I won't be a manager- just a wee indian, so I am hoping to have a life again. After 23 years as an endoscopy nurse, I am moving into the OR as surgical nurse. I am so excited, it has always been a dream of mine to work in the OR and you are never too old to learn a new skill.
Come back for lots more holiday cards to inspire you.
