Down to the last minute!!! I am just finishing up with Christmas cards I need to get out today!!! 365 days in a year and I am down to just a few days and I am making Christmas dinner. We laid flooring in our dinning room this week, but we still have the moldings to pick out and paint! That will have to wait! A little over a couple of years ago, we started doing some things around the house and then a tragic event took place and in all honesty, my life was put on hold and so many things took a back seat! Why am I sharing this with you during the most happiest time of the year, because many of you don't know how this blogging and sharing of art has been major therapy and comfort for me. When difficult times hit, I found myself in my craft room doing this thing we all love and then I started blogging! You incredible people have been wonderful and I feel as if so many friendships have developed and I wanted to thank you for all you have given without even knowing. I have learned to never take anyone for granted, so always let the people (and pets) in your life know that you care and how important they are to you and that would include you!! Now for these cards!
This gorgeous Cherub Collage is from Scrolls Work Stamps and is so perfect for a bulk Christmas/Holiday card mailing! In an earlier post, I made a much more detailed card using this stamp. During this very busy time of year, we don't always have the time to make totally detailed time consuming cards, but still want a card that lets someone know you are thinking of them. These were stamped and embossed in either gold or silver. I did one silver and decided I liked the gold better. The background is foil paper and you can emboss them or not. The stamped and embossed images were then cut out to the shape and the last one, I torn and then peeled back some of the paper using a technique from the Technique Junkies and edges where shaded.
However you celebrate the Holiday season, I wish you the best and the happiest! Thank you for being you and being a part of my life!
