Hi Everyone. Happy Monday.
I hope you are having a great start to your week. Me? I am on "vacation", so am getting some free time during the day and that has allowed me to go and do something that is more meaningful at Christmas than the rubbish that is going on at my office at the moment.
It means that I got to spend the afternoon my cards for "Cards for Hospitalized Kids". It felt good to make some bright and cheery cards today and I plan to make many more of the Christmas holiday. I will also be making some cards for "Card Care Connection". I will be sharing those cards with you over the next couple of weeks.
In the meantime, I thought you might want to see another card that made my Christmas card collection this year. I love the Penny Black "Snowy Hamlet" stamp. I did share a watercolor version of the card with you on this post. For this set of cards, I used my Copic Markers.
Here's my card:
For the inside, I kept it very simple and just concentrated on the fabulous sentiment.
For the inside of all of my Christmas cards I used a sentiment set from Altenew called "Holiday Wishes". It has some beautiful sentiments in it - but I did cut off the attribution at the bottom of them - as I thought it was a little odd to add an attribution in a Christmas card :-)
So... how about a little fun - and blog candy?
As it is Christmas - and the season for giving - I have a little blog candy up for offer..... a brand new die from Memory Box - it's a beautiful die that has a snowflake in the JOY.
What do you have to do to be eligible for the die? Just leave a message and tell me what you think this is peaking out from the snow? Actually, I am REALLY surprised it has survived the snowfall.... but it is still hanging in there :-)
You don't even have to be right.... any guess will do... but... a little something extra will be in the envelope if you are the winning draw - and you got the guess right :-)
have fun guessing! I'll be back with another card tomorrow - and some more photographs. In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
