Good Morning!

Good morning everyone! I hope that today finds you well. It is a cool, crisp fall morning here. It is actually a little nippy out. I'm thinking a great sweatshirt kind of day! I just love fall!!

I have not finished my project that I was working on yesterday, but I did make a couple of cards that I can show you. As you know there is a lady that my husband works with that lets me put some of my creations at her booth at the Peddler's Mall. Well, I thought that I'd make some Christmas cards for her as a 'thank you' for allowing me to use space in her booth.

I'm kinda a non traditional Christmas color person. Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas! But since the stores commercialize it so by putting items out months before they should I get kind of tired of red and green. That's why you'll see lots of other colors from me for the holiday season.

The image stamp is from Great Impressions. The cs colors are Soft Sky (I loaded up on this before it was gone), dark linen blue and silver. I stamped the image with my black ink and colored it in with pens and pencils. I also used my sakura gel pen. The background snowflakes were stamped with my metallic silver pad. I just layered the image on to the different cs and that was all. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

Once again the image is from Great Impressions. I've had these stamps quite some time. I purchased them from the local stamp store in California that I used to frequent (oh how I miss that place!!!). They would have these stamp of the month stamps, and of course I had to always be there to purchase them!!

The colors are the same. I stamped the image and colored it in with my pencils and gamsol. Once I colored the image I sponged Brilliant Blue ink around the panel. The background paper is from a paper pack I purchased last year at Walmart. I layered the dark linen blue and Soft Sky paper. I also had some paper that was run thru the cuttlebug in the Soft Sky color that I attached to the card. For the sentiment I stamped the word 'happy' in silver metallic on a piece of Soft Sky that I punched with my tab and attached that under the image panel.

I really hope that she likes the cards that I made for her. It's just a small gesture to thank her for her kindness.

Well ~ I must be off. I've got to finish the project that I started working on yesterday with Betty and Mom. I will show you pictures tomorrow for sure!

Have a great fall day!

What cute stamps and I love the colors you chose. I'm not sure why I always go for red and green, but I do which is strange because I love non-traditional christmas colors.
