A few shots...
from the first week in December. These will be added to my December Daily album.
Having snack after school...
We took the kids to see Rise of the Guardians last night. The blond children are Jordan & Nick, who came along with us with their mom, Tania.
Today, I had the day off, so I ran errands, made some cards and mailed out my Christmas newsletters & family photos.
And, here are a couple of cards I made yesterday. This first card is for Retro Sketch #40. Here's the sketch:
For my card, I used Papertrey Ink cardstock (aqua mist, vintage cream), stamp (Stylish Sentiments: Holiday), dies (Love Lives Here: Holiday, LL:Squares), felt and ribbon. I also used October Afternoon patterned paper. I die cut the tree from the felt and backed it with the patterned paper.
For my second card, I kept the design similar, but swapped out a Snowflake Medley die for the tree. I stamped a Snowflake Medley image with versamark on PTI vellum and heat embossed it, sprinkling on a little Martha Stewart glitter to add some sparkle for this week's MIM at Papertrey Ink: Detail Glitter Technique.
The patterned paper is Studio Calico. Here's a photo where you can see the stamped image a little more clearly:
Thanks for looking!
