From our house to yours....

WOW where did the last 2 days go? Yesterday I received my birthday package from Stamping Bella (gift from my hubby) so it was Christmas early; the only problem was finding the time to make something!

I used Julee Tilmans Mojo Monday layout for this card; it was a fantastic layout to play with. The image is stamped on my Gina K Pure Luxury paper with Pallette black ik. The image is cut & embossed with nesties rectangle, then mounted on a piece of SU chocolate chip cut with the nesties scalloped rectangle. I used the nesties to cut and emboss the piece of Riding Hood Red and layed it horizontally. The DS paper is SU's ski slopes (because I hadn't cleared my space!) and it is mounted on chocolate chip. The card base is SU's Old Olive.

I coloured the image with my copics and the lights on the house and the trees are coloured with Spicas. For the windows on the house I used my Gelly Roll pen to give then a frosted look; something we had earlier in the week! A little liquid aplique for the snow, which looks like our house now-
except for the Christmas lights; maybe next year?!

My hubby really liked this card; told him it's one of the stamps he bought for my b-day & that he has great taste! :)

Well he is making dinner, since I am doing the big dinner tomorrow and has opened a bottle of wine so I will wish all of you and your families a very Merry Christmas -
