We wish you a Merry Christmas

  Imgp0012

I don’t need ANY more Christmas cards, but I had to use this new image from 2RedBananas.  Isn’t it great?  It will be released soon.  The card base is 5.5 inches square.

The main image is “Caroling Jack” and the sentiment is part of a sentiment from “Christmas Wishes.” (The rest of it is “and a happy New Year.”  And it will be released soon, also.)  I paper pieced the wreath and bow with Old Olive and Real Red cardstocks. ThImgp0014e berries are red/gold Stickles. I also paper pieced his book with a gold shimmery paper. I added Crystal Stickles to the snowflakes. The snow on the fence and on the ground is an ultra-fine glitter. I colored Jack with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. I scored a double line between the sentiment and the image. The matting is Old Olive, and I scored a double line on the bottom of that, too. The card base is 5.5 x 5.5 inch and is a pre-embossed card from DCWV.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!

Well, now, if this isn't the cutest thing! Love all the sparkly snow. Gosh, I wish I could say I don't need anymore Christmas cards, but I'm not quite there yet. Guess I'd better hurry!
