Hello, hope all those celebrating Thanksgiving on Thursday are getting ready! I am hosting this year, but only having two guests with my family. Small, stressless, and fun! I hope yours is too!
I love using a big sentiment as a focal point. I pulled out Sentimental Favorites from Flourishes and stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Flourishes Classic White card stock.
Using Spellbinders dies Labels One I cut out the sentiment and sponged it with the die in place. I embossed a white panel using the Flora M-Bossabilities from Spellbinders. Then is gently sponged ink over the raised image to make it stand out. The paper is from the MME Rosy paper pad. I embellished the May Arts silk ribbon with a few trinket leaf pins.
I am hoping for a nice day tomorrow so I can get the kids out in the yard for their Christmas picture. I had to wait until they got their hair cut! Do you have your Christmas cards done yet? I gave up hand making 70+ cards each year. Now I usually create one with the kids and the dog on it using Snapfish or Shutterfly, and then I can really get into the handful of hand mades! Those are usually the ones that are hand delivered or mailed inside a Christmas package. Those I really enjoy making!
Have a great day!
