Jingle Bells and a Poinsettia from a friend
I have been keeping it simple with my Christmas cards this year.
One of my goals is t use up my scraps on my cards, as we know most recipients of our cards don't keep them.
But there are a few of my friends that I know do keep my cards.
So for those friends, I do more detailed cards.
This is one of those cards :)
I love this paper and didn't want to cover it up.
So I coloured this cute CC Designs image with my Copics. Backed it with a detailed die cut from Spellbinders, and added some jingle bells :)
Isn't this paper just so pretty :)
I added some real jingle bells to the card. I attached them with invisible quilting thread and wrapping it around the snowflake brad.
Like I mentioned before I coloured the caroler with my Copic markers. I then paper pieced her coat.
As always I shaded her paper pieced coat to give it more dimension.
Onto My Day:
I took Heather to her dentist appointment. Ever since she has to pay for her own exams, she hasn't gone for awhile.
I had to explain to her, that no matter the cost, you have to take care of yourself first. My Heather is even more thrifty then I am.
I was cleaning up the house, and needed a new container for my tickets for last month.
So I went downstairs to get one and ended up spending the majority of the day packing up 3 years of tickets to bring into storage.
We interrupt this post as my friend Lynne and her daughter Brianna came by for a quick visit :)
Look what they brought me....a beautiful poinsettia.
Isn't she so sweet :)
Thank you Lynne :)
I hope you all have had a creative Monday :)
