Yippeee ~ Friday :) and FWF

Good morning all!
I've been slacking in my posts recently.  I have been really busy making cards, but haven't taken pictures.  I took this photo with my smartphone, so please forgive the quality.

This was my main Christmas card that I sent out.  I got about 25 of them made at a crop that I did at the Arts and Crafts House in Brantford.  I had an amazing time, Lesley Langdon is an amazing person and the food they provided us with was incredible!! I can't wait to go back.  I ran out of the red cardstock though, so ended up making about another 15 of a different design that day.  In the past week, I have done about another 30 cards!  I only have about 50 on my mailing list, but by the time you do all the teachers, etc at the kids school, plus co-workers, it really adds up.

I used a Unity Itty Bitty as my focal image on this card.  I misted the patterned paper (Echo Park Happy Holidays) with Studio Calico white mist to tone down the colours a bit and finished with a bakers twine bow and a little rhinestone.

Hope you are somewhat close to being ready for Christmas - I feel like I could use another week.






Have a wonderful Christmas everyone!

Michele
