I hope you're all having a wonderful Christmas Day!
We attended the Christmas Eve service at our church last night
-- it made me so happy that everyone dressed up for the event!
It's tradition to take a photo of our family in front of the tree
at church on the 24th.
(By the way, I can't believe I'm almost the shortest person in my family!)
And it's also tradition for the kids to pose in front of our tree
on Christmas morning before opening their gifts...
They were all very happy with what they received, which made me very happy
this Christmas morning. :)
I had a couple of extra gifts to open under my tree this morning, too...
I had won a gift certificate to MFT stamps this summer for Camp Create
and decided to order some goodies.
When they came, I thought it would be fun to wrap them up, with a tag
that said: "To Leigh, from MFT Stamps."
To make the tag, I used this week's MFT Wednesday Sketch 312:
Here's my tag (sorry it's a little blurry!
I was going to retake the photo, but I think it got thrown out with all of the wrapping paper.)
I stamped the BG Scattered Surface in Altenew Morning Frost on PTI Soft stone cardstock.
I stamped my Snowflake Flurries stamp in Altnew Crimson onto its coordinating diecut.
I heat embossed the sentiment (from PTI's Holiday Folk) in white on a strip of red cardstock.
And here's what was inside my package:
I actually let Sage open it -- and was delighted with her excitement
over what I'd picked!
I had also won a gift certificate from Altenew for their video contest,
so I did the same thing with this parcel I received in the mail.
I decided to use CAS(E) This Sketch #202 to make it:
as well as Altenew's A Year in Review Inspiration Challenge:
I was inspired to use the pretty pinks and greys from the August Challenge.
Here's the tag:
I stamped the sentiment (from MFT's Hand-Lettered Holiday)
and the flowers and leaves from Altenew's Bamboo Roses in Altenew Jet Black ink.
(I just got this ink and I love it!)
I painted in the flowers and leaves using PTI ink that I pressed onto my acrylic block, water
and a paintbrush.
Here's what I got with my gift certificate:
I'm looking forward to playing with my new goodies!
How about you?
Did you get any stamps for Christmas?
Thanks for looking!
