HSS201 and CC1215


Happy Wednesday, everyone!  I needed a little Christmas card for a secret sister, and when I saw the sketch at Hand Stamped Sentiments, as well as the Curtain Call challenge, I decided to pair them up!

I had some of this older SU paper on my desk from another project, so I just used some bits of it along with a couple of cute candy and gingerbread images from TPC’s Sweet Christmas:


I embossed the gingerbread man with white craft ink and white embossing powder, and the candy is colored with markers and embellished with a Jelly Roll pen….it’s really fun and sparkly in real life, it’s a shame you can’t see it here!


The sentiment is from Lil’Inkers, and I combined some red and silver baker’s twine along with a couple of embossing folders to finish it off!  It’s as sweet as my secret sister is….she is a real sweetheart!

Grampy (also know as Mr Gadget in our household) was getting frustrated as he watched Cassidy “open” our mail by ripping apart the envelopes, so (only as a man can do) he showed her how to use a butter knife as an letter opener:



Success!  Now I just have to watch that she doesn’t try to do this on her own!


Enjoy your day!

Cute Card!
Grandpa needs a letter opener. Butter knives are for butter. LOL From Grandma Gadget to Grandpa Gadget. They do call me the gadget queen. LOL

I love that sweet lil gingerbread guy! And why do men care so much about how mail is opened anyway? I have the same problem here, except it's me who gets in trouble for ripping the envelopes open! Hubby keeps trying to teach me too, but after 30 years one would think he's give up on me! haha

Great holiday card. The colors are perfect together. Leave it to a man to show another way to use a butter knife. Thanks for playing along with us this week at HSS.

SO SO sweet! I love the gingerbread scene, and all the detail you put into it! You have made the sketch look downright amazing. And tell Cassidy that Mrs. Erika tears her envelopes to shreds, too! We busy girls don't have time for proper letter openers. Thanks for playing at HSS and MERRY CHRISTMAS!
