Christmas 2011


This just may have to be my first Christmas card for 2011! I have all my cards for this year completed and ready to mail. Now I need to get to the Post Office before Christmas is over with. Hopefully, tomorrow.

I've had this card in my mind for a while and decided I'd better make it before I forgot what I was thinking. So, yes, you get to see one more Christmas card I'm afraid. I used some Cherry Cobbler (LOVE that color), Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Very Vanilla, and some SU DP. The image and sentiment are from To You and Yours from SU. I used my SU markers to "color" the image. The lace - ah....another one of those thrift shop finds! I used glitter on the "snow" on the house, ground, and the swirls. The panel in Cherry Cobbler was embossed using the Square Lattice die.

This is for the following challenges:

Rubber Red Neck - Color challenge to use Real Red, Crumb Cake and Old Olive. I substituted Cherry Cobbler for the Real Red. This is color round-up #12
Stampin Royalty - Winter Holiday (Christmas)
Creative Inspirations Paint - Inspired by a snow globe - when I was growing up we had a snow globe with a little house similar to this in it. It always amazed me and I wondered how they got all that "snow" in there!



Hope everyone has a nice weekend.........
Thanks for stopping by.........

I like the color that you stamped the image in and how you added touches of brighter colors to it. The crocheted lace is perfect with the vintage style image.

Hi Lynn,

You were so darn' right about that high heeled shoe!!! I could not wear such footwear - not any more...

I adore this card - great taste as usual. That lace looks so vintage cannot believe it is from a thrift store. Very likable card!

So pretty Lynn! I love how you added the pops of red and green to the stamped image. The texture from the embossing folder and he gorgeous trim just complete the card. Great way to get a head start on next year's cards already...whew, I still need to get mine in the mail. :)
