Keeping Warm- and look who came to town and stopped by to say HO Ho HO!!!
I used up the 2nd and last piece of the Herringbone patterned background I made Sunday tonight on my card. I learned this technique from the Technique Junkies Newsletter (which would make an awesome Christmas gift if you do not get the newsletter already!!!) I stamped the gloves from the set Love Never Melts from FCD and then used the sentiment from the set Let's Celebrate from FCD - which is a family favorite (My husband Ray has a really fast metabolism and is always very warm, but his hands are always freezing!) The sentiment is stamped in SU Brilliant Blue, and the gloves colored in SU Blue Bliss- plus I added Ice Stickles to the top of the glove, and a little ribbon to hand them up with. I used the Cuttlebug to emboss the Background strips, and highlighted the embossing with SU Brilliant Blue, then painted on Shimmerz over the top. The ribbon is from the Dollar Spot at Target...... Another fun card to make- a fun winter card to give away to a friend.
Santa loves visiting kids in the neighborhood each year at Christmas time, and since we do not have little kids anymore, we find out what all of the HOT toys are.....I never heard of a Shelf Elf.......I will have to look that up- seems almost all of the little kids asked for them.
By the way- Pamela at Firecracker Designs is still having her BLOWOUT inventory sale- however, she has taken some time off from the store for the Holidays. You can still order anything in the store-including sale stamps, Flower Soft ETC, and the orders will be processed in the order they are received....but the orders will not be shipped until Jan 4th. This week Thursday, 12/16, the select SALE items at the FCD store are 60% off!
Digital images CAN be ordered and will download for you, so you CAN still order them while Pamela is baking cookies, shopping for gifts, wrapping presents, etc. I have a DIGI poinsettia card almost finished to post on Thursday night- it is such a pretty image- THIS LINK will take you to the Digi page at FCD!
Have a Blessed day today!
