Hello friends. I hope you are beginning your Holiday festivities with friends and family. I am officially "on vacation" from the office and have two glorious weeks home with those I love. Last night was my Book Club discussion group. We just finished "The Incredible Life of Henriatta Lacks" and celebrated the Holidays together with a cookie/ornament exchange and a bit of Eukere. It was such fun ... thank you Sue for hosting!
I love the classic colors and the traditional images of Christmas. Red and green ...snowflakes and holly ... bring the Holiday season to mind. Stamp sets pulled from the shelf for this card include Christmas Postcard (a favorite of mine) and Winter Post.
Thank you, Geri, for inspiring me with your beautiful use of the these frames! I painted and sanded mine to antique it. The ribbon is Very Vanilla Satin. Red Glimmer Paper and a Snowflake Punch created the smaller snowflake. I think this paper will be absolutely perfect to make beautiful hearts for Valentines too. The large white snowflake behind the frame is cut from this wonderful Snowflake Die ... a large and simple snowflake pattern - perfectly shabby.
I've decided to play along with the Design Team over at Just Us Girls. They are celebrating Christmas with the traditional color scheme I love. Their sample cards are gorgeous ... as always.
One more thing before I let you go today ... you've got to look at these ADORABLE houses Victoria created. They are posted on her blog Things I learn from BEAR. She has a whole village! What a fabulous idea for any celebration ... Valentines, Fourth of July, Halloween, or perhaps a housewarming or a new nursery? I love them ... thanks for visiting my ETSY and for sharing your talents Victoria!
Enjoy your weekend everyone ...
