I know, I know....it's not even Thanksgiving yet!


It's my first Christmas card of the season and the reason it's so early is because I participated in a Verve Visual swap and this was the card front that I created. This great swap was hosted by crazycatstamper/Lisa and she did such a great job! I love the elegance of Verve Visual stamps and I just hadn't used this set enough so I knew it would be my choice for the swap. I chose Mojo Monday Sketch #43 to use for my design. I received so many beautiful cards back in this swap-I hope she does it again! I will list the supplies below.

I also want to thank everyone for their well wishes! I am on both antibiotics and steriods and a myriad of over the counter meds for my infection and am starting to feel better. I am back at work today and the weekend is looking good!

Recipe:
Stamps: VV Thankful Blossoms, Sentiment from Lizzie Ann Designs
Paper: Papertrey Ink and Prism cardstock, Chatterbox dp
Ink: Versa Magic for bg stamping and sponging, Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Copics, Sakura Stardust pen, Stickles, dimensional adhesive, Nestabilities, scallop scissors, Dew Drops, black sharpie.

I wish everyone a wonderful weekend!
