So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Speedy the Cat's Challenge #27

Christmas card creations! Oh this one was easy...I have been working and working on these Christmas cards....and just when I think I'm finished...I find another stamp that would be MORE perfect!!!! There are so many Christmas stamps out there! WHAT fun!!!

This first one was using the Popcorn Bear stamps....I purchased several of them and find them to be just adorable! I just couldn't decide on ONLY one! They color up very nicely with Copics, add a little Sakura glitter pens, stickles and you are good to go! Use some decorative paper background, a few embellishments, use nestabilities to cut them out. Used GKD luxury white cs to color on...it is one of the best for copics!

I also had a great time making a bunch of simple ones using GKD Blessed is the Season stamps. Again used some decorative papers, made a faux window to look through at the stamps in the snow, added a bow and some embellishments inside.Used Martha Stewart lace edge stamp. Even stamped ALL of the envelopes. DRS has some great envelope stamps! LOVE using those!

This is the entire collection of that particular one! THESE went very quickly to make!
