Hi everyone! Hope you're having a great week! I am suffering with allergies....I am sure there are many of you who can sympathize, sniff sniff! But stamping usually takes my mind off of them! Today I have a CAS Christmas card using the Merry Monday Kraft challenge as well as the CAS Colours and Sketches sketch:
SU has some lovely Kraft cardstock that I believe is going to retire, sadly. It is a little lighter than regular cardstock, but each side features a slightly different shade of Kraft! After embossing mine, I mounted it on a piece of thick white cardstock to give it a sturdy base. Here we go:
I heat-embossed a wee little wintry cabin from Altenew with white craft ink and white embossing powder on a piece of the Kraft, then mounted it on a piece of Whisper White. I added some white shading with my aquapainter and a few snowflakes with a white gel pen:
The top border was punched with an older Martha Stewart snowflake punch, and the inside sentiment is from Papertrey:
I added some simple sequins and pearls, then finished it off with a bit of thick baker's twine at the top! So glad you could pop in today!
Living out in the country, we get critters ALL the time on our property. We have a bell at the end of our driveway that lets us know when someone is driving in....I'll bet it went off four times in the middle of the night because of the deer meandering around our yard! Anyway, John noticed some boards dislodged under our utility shed, so he set out the Have-a-Heart trap and within a day, we got a ground hog! Cassidy was intrigued, but not enough to get too close (don't mind the dingy in the background, LOL!):
Mr Groundhog was not happy to be caged up, so John took him somewhere far, far away to start a new life!
The joys of living in the country! Enjoy your day and be blessed!
