Glad Tidings

SFYTT

 This is Jen's last SFYTT for 2011 and it was a nice easy one to work with.  Phew, as time is tight right now and I almost forgot to do it!

I snuck in one final Christmas card using MME's Lost and Found as I just love the colours in this line and I'm sure I can use one last minute card somewhere :)

Out came my Verve snowflake and I embossed the image with clear embossing powder on Artichoke and a scrap of tan paper I had in my stash.

First card I have made in seems forever, and it sure felt good!  A short reprieve amidst the busy schedule we have up through Christmas.  Not sure if I'll get back before the New Year as I have a few books I'd like to poke my nose into over the break once all the company is gone.

Thanks for popping in today and hope your Christmas preparations are going well :)

 

 What's In It?
Stamps: Glad Tidings (Verve)
Paper:  MME Christmas Lost and Found, Always Artichoke, Tan, Linen Cream
Ink:  Black, VersaMark

Very pretty, embossed snowflake and I really like that Lost & Found paper. I have it and will probably be using it again next year. I think there's plenty still in the pad.

Merry Christmas, Marisa!

This is beautiful Marisa. It is so great to see you get a little time to stamp. I love this card and the colors are my favorite. Have a wonderful holiday season. I just went to the library and got myself a stack of books. Happy reading.

Merry Christmas, Marisa! I saw you had a pj day two days in a row. It usually takes me till mid January to feel back into the swing of things. And it ain't getting any easier as I grow older, either! LOL

Glad you had a chance to do one final card before Christmas. Love the Verve goodies and Lost and Found goodies you matched up.

Hope you get time to read some of those books you mentioned!
