Finally I made a Christmas card for this year! Last year at this time I must have had about 20 of them finished. Oh well - I have time:) Some day I'll start on my calendars, too, but not today. If I start cranking out the Christmas cards, maybe I'll start up my "Christmas Sunday" again.
Anyway, back to this card. I've had this piece of textured off-white cardstock with the glittery strip on it in my "Card Parts" pile for quite a while. I'm pretty certain I used a piece of Scor-Tape and sprinkled it with red glitter. I finally decided to use it. The sentiment stamp and the mistletoe stamp are both from a set from Stampin' Up! called Christmas Blessings. I colored the leaves with a Memento marker and the berries with a white Tim Holtz marker. I matted with Real Red cardstock. This card is also for the Christmas Card Challenge blog. There is always a specific challenge, but the overall challenge is just to make a Christmas card.
An update on my mom. Her PET scan showed that the surgeon was not able to remove all of her cancer. She will be starting six weeks of radiation today. Any prayers for her would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
And some great news - we will not only be getting a new grandson at the end of May - we'll be getting a new grandchild in October, too! Pretty exciting!
And this is in response to Celia's question on this card. Yes, I use Goo Gone as a substitute for Gamsol, which I do not have. I have heard that you can use baby oil, also, but I have never tried that.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
