More Christmas Wishes...

I am happy to say all my Christmas cards are in the mail; I think they may even get to their destinations on time! This is the last set of "mass production" cards I made.

I used Mercy's sketch from last week (MTSC51) as my inspiration, and inked up my long neglected Elzybell's stamp Mark & Ela. The image is stamped with mementos ink and coloured with copics. For the falling snow I used glue and micro fine glitter, for the snow on the ground I used liquid applique and micro fine glitter, which I heated a little.

The DS paper is from My Mind's Eye's colourful Christmas as are the brads. I embossed the baja breeze paper with quickutz snowflakes and sewed around the patterend paper.

I sent these cards to my parent's and
brothers. When I was in about grade 1 (really not that long ago...) my dad, brothers & I went tobogganing outside of town. You parked on the side of the road & walked in and then walked back out. I was in front of my dad on the sled; but didn't know I was suppose to drive so we wound up in a tree; my foot was all wrapped up in the branches. Naturally I cried & cried & my brothers told me to quit being a wimp and then my poor dad had to pull me out on the sled. Fractured my foot; but the funniest part is the next year when we went out the poor little tree was growing crooked!!

So the moral of the story is if you are on the front of the sled keep your eyes open because you're the driver!!!
