Christmas in Almost-March


I wasn't going to post a card today - mainly because I haven't made any new cards in about a week now. I'm afraid I'm having some medical issues with my shoulder and can't seem to be pain-free for more than about 15 minutes at a time (and I'm not one to make anything really quick)! Then I realized I had this Christmas card that I'd made several months ago and decided to post it. This isn't the greatest photo in the world but it'll just have to "do" for today.

It's a very clean and simple one-layer card. I really don't even remember what stamp I used. I know the sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes (SU). I added some small red rhinestones as the "holly" and topped it off with some red gingham ribbon.

Hopefully I'll be back in full swing later in the week. AND I do have a card to post for Wednesday for the Dude Time Doodles Sketch Challenge (so be sure and stop by on Wednesday)!

Thanks for stopping by...............

The stamp looks like a Hero Arts, that maybe came w/ owls? At least it looks like a set I have :)
Love the gingham ribbon :)
Feel better!!!

Aw Lynn, I was so hoping your shoulder would be all better. Probably shouldn't do any cooking, cleaning, or laundry for at least a year.
Card is great, love its simplicity.

I LOVE CAS cards and this one is an absolute fave - outstanding! I'm so sorry you are feeling such pain and you'll be in my thoughts with many hugs and much prayer heading your way, my friend. Be well! x0x0

This is an awesome one layer card and would have been perfect for the One Layer Wednesday card :) This is so pretty! I am so getting into the CAS, fast and has high impact.

i hope your shoulder gets better real quick. I LOVE this card! It is GORGEOUS!

Monica said...

Oh Lynn, hope your shoulder gets better sooner rather than later...

I ADORE this card... so classy, clean and simple. Just my type!!!

Now I am rushing off to see your newer creation. I have been so exhausted of late that I have been going to bed at 10 pm instead of leading a nocturnal life. Sleeping late really wears me out, you know. But sleeping early keeps me away from my fave activity - blogging!

Hugs - not tight ones so that they don't hurt your shoulder,

Monica

Lynn, I don't know how I missed this one! I saw your comment about your shoulder in todays post and was confused, so I scrolled down. Oops, sorry! I hope things get better with it. Ps: This card is fantastic! Love the clean design.
