Christmas Post

I finally got out this stamp set and inked it up for the first time.  The push is on to get all my Christmas cards finished by next Wednesday and get them mailed.  No flaking out this year and sending them the day after Christmas!  (Woohoo!)

Since I'm in a bit of a rush*, I decided not to color the image, so I stamped it in Old Olive to match the ribbon.  See that little strip of DP down the left side of the card?  That's the scrap that is left over after you use your border punch.  Don't throw those away!  They make nice little accent pieces.  (Heads-up: Tomorrow's challenge involves using your scraps!) 

* Son's card, finish Christmas cards, make cards for this weekend's blog hop, make cards for card swap at club meeting day after tomorrow, make gifts and Christmas cards for club members, make Christmas presents for family members, making anniversary cards for mom and hubby, and daughter-in-law's parents.  I'd be okay if that pesky need for sleep didn't get in the way, lol!

Stamps: Winter Post, Four the Holidays
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip
DP: Merry Moments Designer Series Paper
Ink: Old Olive Classic
Accessories/Tools: Old Olive Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Gold Brads, Stampin' Dimensionals, Scallop Edge Punch


  1. Beautiful! Love the frame around the skaters with the brads. Hope you get those Christmas cards out on time! I'm trying to get mine done too.

  2. Don't know how I missed this card, but I love it and the colors are fantastic.


Thank you for visiting - I'd love to hear from you!
