Happy Monday, peeps! What a great weekend! It snowed a lovely snow, I got my Christmas tree up (not decorated though), I made cookies, Army won the Army-Navy game by one point (although I felt sad for the Navy kicker who missed), so my West Point nephew and his mom, my sister, were happy......and the Eagles won as well! I am not a football fan really, but I like it when the teams that my family likes win! I even squeaked in a tiny bit of crafting time for two challenges: Just Add Ink and CAS(E) this Sketch:
I started with a thick white cardstock base, some kraft cardstock from last year's catalog, and Tranquil Tide cardstock for my greenery! So here we go:
I diecut my kraft cardstock with a Lil'Inker stitched rectangle die, and although it's hard to see, I stamped a vintage Christmasy background on it with Crumb Cake ink, then added my greenery, diecut with a Tim Holtz die. I sponged the Tranquil Tide greenery with white craft ink, then added some chunky cut glitter for "snow":
A Pretty Pink Posh diecut tag was stamped with a sentiment from Joyful Noel by Concord & 9th, then tied up with some Very Vanilla thick baker's twine. I popped up the kraft piece with dimensionals to make up for the thickness of the twine. I love this look!
And speaking of pines, the family went out and cut their tree yesterday:
Cassidy found just the right tree (check out the boots) with Mommy and Ganae:
And helped Wayne carry it back to the car:
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
