For my part, I am feeling richly blessed, very loved and deeply content:0) Life is good... And because things are so hectic in December, this is the total Christmas card production for 2011. I am making it my goal to think of cards in November next year when I only think things are crazy, but really have no idea what's going to hit me yet!!!!! Suffice to say that if you got one, you are very extra special (and if you didn't I still love you!!!! Don't fret:D)
It is impossible to tell from this last minute iphone picture I took seconds before gifts and cards were delivered, but the card background is made with the fun stamp/embossing folder combos created by a Sizzix/Hero Arts partnership. The holly vines were embossed, then stamped with Tsukineko glue and glittered. Which is backwards from how they recommend using the stamps and folders, but worked out just fine for the technique I was after. The Joy ornament is a Tim Holtz for SIzzix die and 'mover and shaper'. Tag dies are from Sizzix as well.
