Happy Hump Day! :) 2 more work days until the weekend! WOOHOO! Now, don't get me wrong, I LOVE my new job, but having the weekends off is SO NICE for a change! But we didn't come here to talk shop, did we? ;)
I'm here to share with you my 1st official Christmas card for 2015:
I decided to go with a nice monochromatic color scheme, using the snowy postcard stamp I have been dreaming of owning for a good while now! I just couldn't pay the regular price for it...that day- after-Christmas sale at Michael's came to my rescue this time, when the Christmas stamps were 75% off. In my cart it went! SO HAPPY!!
The Spellbinders poinsettia may look planned, but it actually hides a pretty big booboo...I had worked so hard on getting the edges of the panel distressed juuuust right, adding ink in just the right places, running Stickles around the oval in the design...and then I get out my *new* clear glitter Wink of Stella pen. Instead of trying it out on a scrap piece of paper like a *smart* crafter would, I tried to get it started on my image panel...I think you all know where this is going! I was going to scrap it and start over, but my dear daughter Leandra suggested I cover it up instead. I really hated to cover up any of this gorgeous stamp, but one must do what is necessary!
Well, this card is going to be entered into the following challenges:
Merry Monday #142: Houses

Jingle Belles: Bring in the New
Holly Jolly: Lots of Sparkle (Stickles around the oval and the Wink of Stella you can't see!)
