Christmas is Coming

It is hard to believe that summer is over, and the new School Year/Football Season has started.   Which means that Christmas is getting closer, and now is the time to start creating your Christmas cards, so you aren't still making them on Dec 24th. This week at Inspired Stamps the Design Team is creating Christmas themed artwork.  I used Vintage Christmas to create the card above.  The sentiment is Stamped and embossed on vellum, and then glued onto the B&T to create a vintage feel.  

Materials Used:  Inspired Stamps Vintage Christmas,
CTMH: Mistletoe B&T, Colonial White Cardstock, Mistletoe Assortment Embelishment pack, Cocoa and Desert Sand Ink, clear Detail Embossing Powder
Gold Paper and Ricrac ribbon from Jo-Ann's

Today while you are viewing this post I will be at the Cleveland Processing center watching Jimmy Swear In.  Today is the day he has been waiting for and I have been dreading.  My Baby is leaving the nest and embarking on the next aspect of his life. While I am sad at the thought of losing my baby ond only having 2 kids in my house, I am very PROUD of Jimmy and support his decision to join the Army.  (Though I might add that his younger brothers, Tony and Dillon, have already started to divide up Jimmy's clothes and furniture.  If they didn't already have their own rooms, I am sure they would be fighting over who got the room also.  BOYS!!)

Please make sure you check out the rest of the team's artwork.

Until next week
