My card today is a very simple Christmas card. I used the sketch from 52 Christmas Card Throwdown as inspiration.
The stripes are designer paper scraps from other projects. I like the assortment of different patterns and colors. The image/sentiment is from When the Scrap Hits the Fun. I die cut the image with Gina Marie Designs Wine Bottle Labels. Then I inked the die cut with Bundled Sage distress ink. I thought it gave it a vintage look. I added a couple self-adhesive gems to finish off the card.
I am entering these challenges:
- 52 Christmas Card Throwdown: use the above sketch
- Crafty Hazelnut Christmas challenge: anything goes, option of vintage
- The Outlawz Festive Friday challenge: anything Christmas
- Happy Little Stampers: anything goes, optional star
- Crafty Hazelnut Christmas Extra challenge: anything goes Christmas
Today is the twins' 5 month birthday so I thought I give you a peek at how much they have grown. It's getting difficult to keep up with them. When they start moving around Grammy is going to have to start running again. LOL! Not looking forward to that.
This is Arthur. Since he needed a respirator at birth his feeding tube was down is throat. He hated that tube and would always try to push it out with his tongue. So most of the time his tongue is still out of his mouth. I think he thinks that's where it's supposed to be. He has the most delightful giggle you ever want to hear. His eyes and his smile are bigger than life.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope your week is off to a great start.
