Like all of you, I have been so incredibly busy. All the usual stuff, gift planning, shopping, wrapping, holiday cards, baking, etc. etc. etc. I have been making hand stamped gifts that I can not wait to share with you. I can’t post them until all the gifts are given to the recipients. I would hate to spoil the surprises! (and I am not sure if they are all blog readers or not, but I know a few that are)
Here is one card I can share, Elzybell.
I caved and purchased these adorable Elzybells– I could not help myself! Here was my 1st creation with her. ( I got 2 other cute stamps as well.) The image is stamped on very vanilla. I colored Elzy with blush blossom and real red, and creamy caramel markers. I added snow, accents and a white trimmed coat with the SU white gel pen which is really hard to see in the photo. The paper is dashing, I will be sad to see it retire! the card stock is old olive and its stamped with the flannel plaid background stamp. The sentiment is from Papertreyink.com.
I finally completed most of my gift projects so I can stamp for me now! I will be packing up the Christmas stuff for a little while and getting on with some new toys! Merry Christmas!
