Holiday Warmth

The two older boys have left for school and that leaves me with a very quiet house. Knock-Out is keeping himself entertained for the moment and I just might relax a bit.

Oh, who am I kidding...I don't have time for that!

The call of Christmas cards is still ringing in my ears...very loudly! I'm trying to get them done before Thanksgiving comes around this year. Well, that's the goal anyway.

Here's another card I did with this month's Stamp of the Month, Holiday Warmth.

Stamps: CTMH Holiday Warmth (October SOTM)
Inks: CTMH Olive, Garden Green, Tulip, Brown Bag, Chocolate markers, VersaMark
Papers: CTMH That's Amore Reflections Kit, Evensong Reflections Kit, Vellum

Here is the sentiment on the inside:

My boys all pointed out the hidden Mickey in the corner.

Here's a close-up of the tree:

I know what you're all thinking, "Oooooh! It's so shiney and pretty! Please tell us how you did it!" Smiley from

Okay, maybe not...but I'll still let you know how I did this.

The tree is stamped on vellum and embossed with gold detail powder. Then using markers and blending pens, color and shade on the reverse side of the image. It gives a soft, watercolor effect. I love how this turned out and it's another card I could look at all day!

I'm going to go have some humble pie right now, anyone care for a slice? Smiley from
