I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

A Merry Little Wish

Hello and Happy Sunday afternoon,

I hope you are having a good weekend. I had to do some work, work this morning but I got it done early and then went right to my stamp table to make a few more Christmas cards. I think I have enough now so this afternoon I will be signing and addressing them so they can be mailed this week. I have another three days away from home this coming week, so I need to really buckle down on getting them done and out.

LeAnne has a traditional Christmas color palette for us this week at The Paper Players of Cherry  Cobbler, Mossy Meadow and Very Vanilla.

The sketch comes from CAS(E) This Sketch # 152.

I'm a little disappointed in how the candy cane turned out, but not enough to scrap the card. I stamped it in Cherry Cobbler, then colored over every other stripe with the Cherry Cobbler marker to give it dimension. It would have been fine had I left it alone, but I decided to sparkle it up with some Wink Of Stella and the marker ink ran some. I'm sure whom ever gets the card won't really notice. Just us stampers, LOL. I liked this holiday paper and it had the dark red and greens for the challenge. It also has the kraft, but I'm declaring it as a "neutral". My story and sticking to it!
