Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday! Do you see a Christmas image? Do you think it’s Monday? Are you all mixed up? I am! Yesterday, for the Merry Monday challenge, I posted my regular Christmas card. But when I went to check out the other designers’ posts, I had a BIG surprise! You can see for yourself HERE. I hit a big birthday yesterday, and Lesley organized a birthday blog hop for me! She is such a sweetie, as are all the girls on the MM team….thank you EVERYONE so much! If I haven’t gotten around to commenting on your beautiful cards, I will!!!
Anyway, on to the ColourQ….and look at these fun little ornaments Arielle picked out!!! Of course, I had to do another Christmas card, although some of the designers did NOT….you’ll have to go look and see what they did with these colors:
So here is my card:
I used a bunch of different stamps on this (if you want to know which ones, just email me….I am too tired to list them right now, LOL!)…along with some rickrack, embossing and sequins! A little whimsy for a vintage card!
And I used the sketch from Match the Sketch 30:
And while I was at it, I had a quarter sheet of Real Red cardstock on my desk, so I folded it in half to make a little skinny card, and stamped some of the images from the new Project Life Holiday Cheer set. I punched them out with the 1” square punch and mounted them on Early Espresso squares punched with the Postage Stamp punch:
I added a little embossing, a little twine and a little glitter!
Another card for my stash! I hope you’ll play along with our Christmas in July colors this week!!! Can’t wait to see what you do!
So Saturday we had a little garage-warming/birthday bash at our house! John finished his garage and we had decided to have a party to thank the people who helped him out. We decided to combine it with my birthday! My sister flew in from SC for a day to help out…she is such a sweetie! And she makes me laugh!
And just in case you are interested in garages, here is the final product:
It is much bigger than it looks in this picture! The men (and some of the women) were quite impressed! And I am pretty impressed too, because John did most of it himself! And it makes a pretty cool place in which to have a party!
Enjoy your day! And thank you again to all of you who wished me well on my big day!
