Hello everyone. It seems forever since I have posted. I had some major compute issues. My hard drive on my MAC died, hence why I haven't been posting. I'm finally back up and running thanks to my hubby (he's my IT guy). I haven't had much time in the line of card making, with the crazy hours at work - this is the last week of over time - 3 more days- thank goodness, then maybe life can get back to normal! I just finished mailing the last of my Christmas cards as well. I'm so far behind this year. I still have shopping to do as well, along with wrapping and baking. I also have a whole list of blogs that I follow that I need to pay a visit to. I will eventually get there. So little time!
For my card today, I used PTI - wreath for all seasons. Love this set, it comes with a variety of images to create your wreath. I stamped the grape vine wreath first using dark chocolate ink (PTI), then punched a circle post-it-note and placed it in the center of the wreath. Next I took the pine needle sprig stamp and repeatedly stamped the spring using spring moss ink (PTI). Lastly I stamped the holly berries in SU cherry cobbler.
There are a few different bow dies and images with this set. I first die cut the bow then I stamped it in cherry cobbler. The sentiment was stamped in dark chocolate.
For the bottom of the card I used some peel-off's that I've had for a few years. I actually have a whole container of these peel-off's in a variety of various images and sentiments. I never think to use them.
To finish off I added some Tim Holtz distress crystal glitter to the wreath and a gold bead to the center of the bow.
Well folks, this is a wrap! It's been a long day. We performed our Christmas Cantata at Church today. That in itself is very exhausting. It's a lot of practicing over the last couple of months, but I must say it sounded beautiful. We sang a beautiful arrangement by Marty Parks called
"A Christmas Offering".
Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day.
