Hello and Happy Saturday! Hope you are enjoying your weekend so far. If you have visited my blog before, your eyes are NOT deceiving you...I really made a red and green Christmas card today (not my favorite, as you may know). I kind of like how it turned out, though...I think I do anyway. Hmmm... ;)
I used this week's fun color combo from The Color Throwdown as my inspiration.Try as I might, I absolutely could NOT make anything other then a holiday card with this mix.
Then I used the following sketch from Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge to put it all together:I decided to ink up a retired set I bought a while back (Yippee Kiyay Holiday) because I thought this little cactus image would make a rockin' Texas Christmas card. In my search for a set to use today, I realized that I completely forgot I had it. Yes, I really need to go through my stamp room in a major way...
After coloring in the image, I decided to fancy it up a bit with some bling on the star, Crystal Effects on the ornaments and red glitter on the gifts. I also embossed the Certainly Celery layer with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. I have officially decided that I don't know if I would be able to continue making cards if something ever happened to that folder. It is my "go-to" folder for a lot of projects. Then I simply added some ribbon and a few red half pearls to mimic the ornaments on the tree. Yee Haw and there you have a red and green (Eeek!) Texas Christmas card.
It has been a while since I have shared a pet photo with everyone. Today my little fur-ball Benjamin, got himself into his usual mischief and I caught him red-handed...or maybe that should read "ribbon-handed". He likes to sneak around and help himself to anything laying on my desk lately, then parade it around the house for all to see. He is such a little monster!!
Thanks for stopping by!
