Happy Thursday, everyone! The week is winding down….hope you’re having a good one. I haven’t made a Christmas card lately, and I know come December, I’ll be scrambling! The Merry Monday challenge this week is to create a card with a non-evergreen tree:
I also wanted to participate in the Kraft Journal’s Anything Goes-Vintage challenge, so I pulled out a pretty scene from an Artistic Outpost set called Midwinter and stamped it in Always Artichoke on some really, really old SU DSP:
I had some pretty maroon paper that was a gift, and I stamped some of the words from a Stampendous Christmas Background at the bottom:
and to finish it off, I stamped a sentiment from a Cornish Heritage Farm set called The Fir Tree:
I added a Neutral glimmer brad and some burlap twine for a rustic look. I added some Wink of Stella glimmer to all the snowy areas, but you’ll have to take my word for how pretty it looks, as it is invisible in the photo! Another card added to my stash!
Cassidy had her “official” pre-school graduation yesterday; her preschool class was in a local high school, and she was taught by Early Childhood Education sophomores, juniors and seniors who are considering being teachers in the future. It’s a great program, the children get lots of attention and the teacher who is in charge does a great job of mentoring the “peer tutors”, as they are called, as well as the preschoolers themselves! They shared some artwork, a couple songs and they recited a poem. I will admit to a couple of tears while watching them! So I will share a few pix today and the rest of the week too:

And with Grampy and Grammy in her classroom:
Enjoy your day!
