Christmas Blessings

Hi guys. Today I want to show you a card I made using an images from "Class Act Stamps". It's the first time I've worked with this brand...and I love the crispness of their stamps. :)


The image is colored with some alcohol markers. Using my Scorepal, I scored a few lines onto my background paper...to give it a little more detail. I also created a double bow. And finally, to keep things interesting, I stamped the sentiment on sideways....

a Charming Christmas

Hi guys. The Christmas season is upon us. I love this time of the year...despite the cold. :) The peacefulness of falling snow. The lights. The decorations. The excitement in the air. The story of miracles...and the anticipation...family...traditions...and our first ever Christmas with our little boy.

...and I love having a reason to sit down and make some cards to send out to friends and family.  :)

I've been wanting to make a card using a sketch I found online. I've seen so many different versions of this card sketch...but I managed to add a little something that I hadn't seen on any card before....

something from my stash that I don't use on cards a whole lot anymore...

a charm...



Here's a look at my card:
