This year, I made a lot of different "thinking of you" and "just a note" cards as I decided in a wild move against tradition to skip the holiday cards this year. I am taking my time over the quiet days between the end of the holiday and the beginning moments of 2013 to write letters to my friends and family flung far and wide rather than just dashing off a quick note on the bottom of a Christmas card.
Here's one of the cards I made:
For this square card, I colored this stamp with markers and stamped it onto water color paper for a soft and different look.
|Stamp: Blush (Penny Black) and sentiment (SavvyStamps)|
I am entering this card into the following fantastic challenges:
Tuesday Alchemy - Anything Goes
Use It Tuesday - Look Ahead to 2013 (hoarded supplies are much neglected stamp and sentiment, Stampin' Up paper I've had for at least 4 years and my last two pieces of Old Olive cardstock which I was saving for a rainy day; purpose of card is to catch up with friends/family with hand-made cards in 2013).
The Pink Elephant Challenge - Anything Goes
Off to make some more!
