Christmas Starburst for DD#28 & ISCC41

Saturday, November 10, 2012

It's time to get serious about my Christmas cards I think.  After all, Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away and after that Christmas will come rushing at us like a freight train!  The color challenge at Dynamic Duos fit right into my plans and the sketch this week at iSpy is to do a starburst, which I thought would look kind of neat with these colors.

I used some retired Christmas DSP called Deck the Halls and some Sahara Sand DSP for my starburst.  And I'm going to pretend that I didn't put a couple of the scripty papers on with the writing upside down!  Hopefully whoever gets this will be so bowled-over by my fussy-cut pine bough they won't notice!

The pine bough and poinsettia are from Watercolor Winter.  I just saw a card the other day where this pine bough was stamped repeatedly in a circle to create a wreath, so I suspect that you may see something like that here soon enough!

I am officially on vacation from work for the next two weeks!  I can't wait to relax a little, get some leisurely Christmas shopping done and enjoy spending Thanksgiving with my zany family!  Thanks for stopping by!

Jen this is so pretty..I did't even notice some of the words were upside down. Hey, that's part of it being hand made:) Glad you joined us this week at Dynamic Duos. Enjoy your vacation. I expect to see lots of blog activity.
