Digi Doodle Color Challenge #83
Well, I am back and able to see what I am posting....our monitor must have been gradually going bad for a bit, as now that I have my new one it is so bright!!! almost blinds me the other way. I am back with another Christmas card....need to replenish my stash. A couple of my friends talked me into joining them at a local craft sale this past Saturday and as it was not planned in advance, I just took a bunch of things that I had in my stash. We all three did pretty well and it was so much fun just hanging out and visiting with each other... a shout out to Cindy and Sharon, thanks guys!
My card is for the color challenge Red/Green, now going on at Digi Doodles which is one of my new favorite blogs. I love the images and need to get my order in for this month. You will love the free with purchase set and there is a sale on animal images as well. For my card this week, I went with a sentiment from the free set "Faith, Hope, Love". I love the way this turned out, I may need to put some more of these together. I used design paper from K&Co "yuletide" and simply die cut the sentiment and then before removing from the die, I sponged it with peeled paint distress ink. My bow is from some sheer ribbon that I bought at the local Dollar Tree.
For the inside, I used the rest of the piece that I had cut for the front and die cut it with a border punch by Martha Stewart. My "Merry Christmas" is from Stampin' Up's set Come to Bethlehem.
This was very fast and easy to put together, but I love the statement from John 3:16 on my Christmas card. Hope you are doing well and getting ready for a wonderful holiday. I just love Thanksgiving and can't wait to see my family this week. I will be trying to stop by for a visit in between some cleaning and cooking. I think that my grocery shopping is done.
Thanks for stopping by.
