Smore's Anyone???

Hello everyone, welcome back!! I wanted to post this card for you all to enjoy. It is a stamp that I've had for years and I can't help myself to make it each Christmas. It is from Darcies. Every year I enjoy making cards that are away from the traditional red and green ~ so that's where the blue and brown come in. I colored the image with my pencils and Gamsol. Part of the band of the hats are colored with my SU! pens, as well as the beaks of the little guys. I then sponged around the outer edges of the images with bashful blue, as well as the "photo corners". I mounted the images on to chocolate chip CS, then on to bashful blue. I then added the photo corners.

I am a bit frugal (maybe it is the time of year when I'm saving for Christmas) but I can't see spending the $$$ right now on the photo corner punch. So what I do is take a scrap peice of paper and cut it to a one inch square. I then cut that on the diagonal. Holding the 2 peices together I snip out a peice from the center and use those as photo corners. Hey, it works for me!!

These are then added on top of BG paper that I purchased in a stack from Walmart. I added stickles to the "marshmellow" center and some on the puff's of the hats and Viola! All done.

How many of you are done with your cards? I vow each year to start early (just like shopping) and it never happens. But, heck. I just cant get into the holiday spirit in August...

Have a happy day!
