I know Christmas is past us already but I just wanted to post the last few cards I had made. The top card is made with a stamp by Penny Black "Poinsettia & Pine". I colored the stamp with marvy uchida markers and spritzed it with a mist of water before stamping. It creates a really pretty watercolor look.
The second card I made for my in-laws using The Cats Pajamas stamp set. I colored with copic markers and matted on DCWV paper. I don't have a scalloped rectangle nestabilities die so I cut two squares and matched them up to make the rectangle.
The third project is two little birdhouse ornaments. I got the pattern off Nichole Heady's blog a few months back. I made them for the boy's teachers to attach to their teacher gifts at Christmas.
To those of you who follow my blog, I have to apologize for being MIA for the last week plus. Last night we had a great new year's eve. We went to a neighbor's house with two other couples and all our kids. We got home at 1:30 a.m. and Erik was still awake. Leo had previously passed out from exhaustion around 12:30 in the middle of the family room floor........ the other kids just ran around him until I moved him to one of the bedrooms.
Today we went to another neighbor's house to go sledding and for a bonfire. He has a tobbagan run off his deck which kept the kids occupied for about three hours. My dh and a couple buddies went trolling the neighborhood for christmas trees people were throwing away so we had some wood for the bonfire. I guess at one house there was an exercise bike and a tree out front and that the owner was excited thinking he was finally getting the bike off his yard, but alas, the guys took the christmas tree. What a letdown!! Here's a couple of pictures of the day! Happy New Year!!!
