About Me

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

let's be merry

Happy Day after Thanksgiving all,

We had fun and very yummy Thanksgiving dinner, and I hope you all did as well. We went to our friend's house late in the afternoon for the feast. All traditional foods, turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, cranberry (canned and homemade relish), brussels sprouts, carrots, popovers and lots of wine. Pecan-carmel chessecake and pumpkin roll for desserts. I was quite stuffed!

Today was also a work holiday for me. I spent it mostly reading and then a little stamping late in the afternoon. I was able to add to my Holiday card stash using this week's Freshly Made Sketch. I pulled out some older stamp sets by MFT and Paper Smooches and patterned papers from American Crafts 6x6 pad called Holiday.

The images are stamped with Memento tuxedo black and colored with Copics and cut out using the set dies. I used a Nuvo clear glitter pen to brush on some sparkle to the Santa hat and holly leaf. Additional embellishments are SU enamel dots and snowflakes.

Here is a look at the inside of the card:

That's all from me tonight. Have a very nice holiday weekend. Thanks for looking in,
