Elegant Christmas

Sunday, December 6, 2015

So, it's official.  My brain is still on vacation.  I was supposed to have this post and written and scheduled so that it would post at 7 AM today and instead I'm typing it at 4 PM.  Oops!  Better late than never.

This is my last week as a guest over at the Precious Remembrance blog showing a card I made using the new Sketchy Christmas stamp set.  I love the images in this set and wanted to show how elegant they look embossed in gold.  The latest challenge at Color Throwdown inspired my colors and I love how all that blank space just draws the eye to the images at the bottom.

I have not yet begun to mail out my Christmas cards and I'm a little afraid to count the ones I have to see if I have enough.  That's definitely on my to-do list for the next couple of days - as well as putting up the Christmas tree.  *Sigh* I wish there were enough hours in the day to do all that I need to do!  #dayjobproblems

Thanks for stopping by!  And special thanks to Dyane at Precious Remembrance for inviting me to play along with her these past few weeks.  I had a lot of fun creating cards and tags with this Sketchy Christmas stamp set!

Jen - this card is stunning! I hope that when you count, you get the number you need! I found I was a few short, despite making Christmas cards every week! We need clones :) xx
