Happy Holidays!

Hello friends.  It's terribly cold here today.  Last night was our Christmas parade through town.  Our son walked behind his Boy Scout troop float.  It was wonderful with a turning Ferris Wheel and gifts piled below covered in twinkling lights.  It won first place and the boys couldn't be prouder!  Me too.

Here's another card created yesterday with a few friends over for an afternoon of stamping.

The papers in the Timeless Portrait collection are gorgeous, one can be seen here along the bottom of the card.  I paired it with a simple green and white flower print letting the bright red scalloped circle take center stage.

Those little birds are so sweet and really catch your eye layered on classic black and white sheet music.  The bow is a combination of Red Satin Ribbon and dyed seam binding, topped with a beautiful red button.

Happy Holidays is stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink and is part of the Four the Holidays stamp set.  We used this set over and over yesterday ... the fonts are perfect for classic Christmas greetings.

Thank you, once again, for stopping by!

  6. glad to have you back posting again!! This card and the previous one are just as soft and lovely as ever! We have our own little Christmas parade here too (with fireworks afterward). It's always the day after Thanksgiving and we have grown to really look forward to it--our kids are old enough to have different little groups they get to ride/walk with--so fun to be excited for them! Your afternoon of stamping with friends sounds like a gift in itself! Boy, would I love that!! Good to have you back!
