And trying to justify having them ha ha!!!
Couldn’t decide if I liked the dark green (Ponderosa pine) or the lighter one (New England Ivy)
Well I had a bit of time tonight so I decided to use some stamp sets that have never seen ink (gasp!) The first card has that gorgeous wreath and I have seen it done in green with red bling for the berries…so I decided to change it up and use silver and blue. That card used 60!!!!! little sticky blingy things….and I didn’t have 60 in blue…so I broke out the Copics and voila…the silver ones were now blue. After all that I screwed up stamping the Noel…oh well couldn’t think how to fix it so I left it alone. The next 2 were ultra simple and I was playing with colors…I think I like the lighter one best. The sentiment is embossed in gold. There is a little gold star brad at the top but it looks like in my messing with the photo I kind of washed that gold color out. My third card is my least favorite…as I was playing with ideas and it didn’t come together for me as I had hoped. The ripped paper I saw on Tracy’s blog here and Jeanne gave me the link to the ‘do-it-yourself-Flowersoft’ Thanks Jeanne…it totally worked and I love it!
