It’s Christmas Eve and I hope everyone is enjoying the day. Don’t forget to slow down a little today. For me working in healthcare, it’s my holiday on. Despite having to work the holiday, I will try to carve out some quiet time this evening. Hallmark is definitely my go to channel for a happy Christmas movie, since I see enough sad stuff at my other job. What is your guilty holiday pleasure?
Christmas Eve with my family is one of my best memories. My parents, sister, and I would get a little dressy and go visit family. We usually stopped at about 5 or 6 houses, Aunts and Uncles, a couple cousins, but our last stop was always my Uncle Albert’s. His house always filled with lots of family, and my Aunt always getting us a little gift we usually needed. I looked forward to that gift every year, which was usually an umbrella. My cousin Mickey and I reminisced about this very memory a couple years ago. We miss them dearly, but cherish those beautiful memories of family. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas filled with family and friends, and take a minute to enjoy the moment.
I got this sweet stamp set at Inspiration Station in Stafford, CT. It’s a great store if you are in the area and looking for something specific or just to browse. I decided to stamp the images in Momento black ink on Whisper White cardstock and the “Believe” sentiment in Real Red ink.
I used Real Red for color since it’s the best red for Santa’s hat! Then finished coloring the boots with my Spectrum Noir markers. I adhered the image to my DSP. Although the stars are pretty, I truly love all plaid DSP!
Finishing touches, I added prisma glitter to the furry boots and hat, plus a few Red Rhinestones! You can never really have too much sparkle on a card for Christmas, am I right!
Then I “popped” the DSP onto Real Red A2 sized cardstock. After that I took another piece of Whisper White cardstock, and added the sentiment in Real Red ink for the inside of this Christmas card. Don’t you remember being little and waiting for “The Big Guy” to bring you all your gifts.
Thanks for visiting my blog. Happy stamping and hope you stop back again.
