Happy Day After Christmas!
What a fabulous day with had with our daughter & her family yesterday!
Fun gift unwrapping and a wonderful breakfast afterwards!
Thanks kids ... we love you!
Today I'm trying to getting my glassware & platters packed away for another party day, and thought I'd take a quick moment to share a few additional last minute Christmas cards I made 'just in the nick of time' to have them go postal to friends & family.
Here are a few more using some fun die cuts I purchased at Joan's Gardens over the past year. The corner snowflake is by Memory Box. The Snowman as well as the Sign are by Marianne. The 'sign' is part of a set that also has a 'street light' as seen in the card below. The Santa w/reindeer die is by Cheery Lynn Designs.
Here are a few challenges these cards qualify for:
Christmas at Sweet Stampin' Challenge - Let It Snow
Crafty Creations Challenge #253 - Anything Goes
Creative Belli #185 - Christmas
House That Stamps Built - Last Minute Card or Tag
Little Red Wagon #217 - Christmas Anything Goes
Rhedd and Rosie Challenge #22 - Let It Snow
2 Creative Chicks #9 - Christmas/Winter
For the following two card creations, I have used the same stamp 'Snowy Postcard' by Stampendous which I asked Joan at Joan's Gardens to order for me last year. For the first card I stamped the image with Versafine 'Sepia' ink ... colored in the holly/berries with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers then simply attached to my background paper and added ribbon. Quick ... Easy ... Beautiful!

While there was still a bit of the sepia ink on my stamp, I stamped it again using Tim Holtz 'broken china' distress ink. I love how a hint of each color came through on the image.
Okay ... time for sharing is over!
I need to get back to my cleaning or it won't get done today!
I hope Santa brought you LOTS of fun, new crafty things to play with.
Talk to you soon and thanks for poppin' in ...
As always . . .
