Warm Memories....

Well I must tell you, for someone that just loves making cards I am so behind this year with my Christmas cards. I had such great hope that they would all be done and mailed out. Unfortunately I am very behind this year. So I have made a promise to my friend Susan and to myself that I am starting them up in January and will have a nice stash to hand out next year. I hope you hold me to it Susan! For my card today I have used my beloved LOTV stamp and coloured it with prisma pencils and added lots and I do mean lots of glitter.
 
I have found some Martha Stewart white texture effect that creates the look of snow. I placed it on my trees and my flowers and even on the corner of the card. Love that stuff! My sentiment is a Whimsy from One Crazy Stamper an online store which has great service. I also bought the Marianne Tree Die from there. My flowers are from Wild Orchids and the paper....oh the paper....it is my new found love. It is Maya Design Paper. A friend brought it back from Sweden and I absolutely love it!

We are having our first snow storm rolling in so I am off to get some groceries to tie us down for awhile. Have a wonderful day and hopefully your Christmas card making is going well!

  10. I think most of us are in the same not-enough-cards boat, Christine. I know I am!!! But quality over quantity is always a good excuse and this beautifully coloured card of yours IS quality!!! Hugs, Lesley

  11. Gorgeous Christine. I think most of us wish we had started sooner.

    Hope the snow is not too bad where you are.

  12. Aloha Christine! Love this adorable card, lots of super details. I will have to try the Martha texture technique, what exactly was it? I've been using the white Flower Soft and like it a lot. Hope your first snow storm wasn't too bad! We've had snow up in northern Arizona. Sorry I've not been by lately, too many things going on with the holidays coming. At least all my cards were done and out early for a change. I know how that can creep up on you, and for once I was ready! Lots of hugs to you and your family and I hope you all have a very blessed holiday and a great New Year. J:)
