I don’t know about you, but one crafter I watch consistently, besides all of my buddies (of course!), is Debbie Olson. She has been doing a series of cards that are ETM – Easy to Mail. This card is not one of those! lol
I just had to bop in here quickly tonight to share a card that has been bouncing around my brain since last Saturday. I’ve been coveting this Waltzingmouse Stamps set since it’s release last year. I just haven’t wanted to pay the shipping *across the pond*! I finally decided to bite the bullet and order…I found out I had plenty of likes…enough for free shipping! Gotta love that! This is the Festive Foliage set. Funny thing about me is that I’m very much Rock ‘n’ Roll, but my Christmas decorating style, and card style, is very much Country (or rustic). lol I don’t know what you’d call it really…maybe botanical? All I know is that I love rustic cream cardstock, a rich cranberry red, a deep evergreen and a bold brown for all my holiday cards. Oh, and if I can add some rusted jingle bells into the mix, I’m super happy!
Anyhooooo, I used the current Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge, #71. It’s stamped in Ranger Distress Pine Needles (how apropos!) and Walnut Stain and sponged with Antique Linen and Walnut Stain. I'm also editing this to add it to the ABC DT Challenge - Christmas Cards! I've been making lots of those lately, so you'll probably be seeing this challenge linked a few more times. ;o)
Thanks so much for stopping by! I’ll be back in the morning with one of the last challenges of Christmas Stampin’ All Year Long! ;o) lyss
