I made a Christmas card yesterday that I didn't get posted. I had a couple challenges in mind when making this one.
I used the Simon Says Big Holiday Wishes stamp set which I don't think is available anymore. I stamped the mittens in a wreath pattern after stamping the sentiment in the middle. It actually took me three tries to get this right. I made a few mistakes along the way. I added the heart stamp at the end and used my Wink of Stella pen to give it some shine. To finish it off I added a Gina Marie Designs Bow and Ribbon die cut. The ink colors were MFT Cherry Crisp and Elf Green and Mustard Seed, Salty Ocean and Seedless Preserves distress ink.
I am entering these challenges:
- Beccy's Holiday challenge: this works for day 2: wreath and day 4: just stamping
- Simon Says Work it Wednesday: use Simon Says products
- Crafty Hazelnut Christmas challenge: anything goes
- Addicted to Stamps and More: holiday
- Inspiration Destination: anything goes
It's almost lunchtime and so I am coming to a close. It's still hard for me to believe I am retired. The days feel strange that I am home so much more. The laundry and the dishes are getting done. Dinner is getting made on time and every day I try to do one little project that I've been putting off for too long (sewing on buttons, shredding old documents, etc.) and it feels good to cross things off my list. I am so blessed. I hope you have an amazing week!
