Hi everyone! I am back from my little bloggy break and I have a sweet little Christmas card using the Atlantic Hearts Sketch for this week:
I had lots of wee little bits and pieces of Tidings of Christmas DSPs left from another project, so I used them to create this:
I cut each square with a Stitched Shape die, and the rectangle piece was cut with the Tailor Made Tag die, re-cutting the tag end. They all went on a Sahara Sand panel and Basic White card.
I added some Forever Fern and Poinsettia Petals embellishments, stamped in Evening Evergreen and Cherry Cobbler, along with some Be Dazzling "berries":
I added some diecut sentiments and it was done!
I think these are some of the prettiest colors together! Thanks for popping in today!
The reason I took a bloggy break was to have some minor sinus surgery. The surgery went very well, although I am not sure it took care of the headache issues I've been having. Anyway, I got some lovely cards from kind friends:
This is from Lisa:
from Donna & Linda:
from Colleen and Linda:
and this one was really special; it was from the nurses at the hospital where I had my surgery. This hospital will be closing at the end of the year and they'll all be losing their jobs, so it's even more bittersweet that they are still thinking of their patients! Edited to add: I just heard the hospital has been purchased! YAY! So hopefully they'll all still have their jobs!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
