Yesterday I went to lunch with my son and daughter-in-law at a restaurant on their side of town. The food was really good as was the company. I then had a chance to stop at our local craft store that happens to be located on their side of town.
Last night I managed to get 11 Christmas cards done. In the process of cleaning out my craft room, I found an old Stampin'-Up Christmas card kit. I almost got rid of it and then decided to put a card together to see what they looked like.
I really liked how they turned out and this mass production will allow me to make the one of a kind single cards that I usually do. The mass produced cards go to people who don't really care about my handmade cards. So I have an A and a B list for Christmas cards (lol)!
So that was my weekend. I hope yours allowed for some great family time as well s crafty time. Now onto my card for today.
This is another I made for the Hope You Can Cling To Challenges on Splitcoaststampers. For this 18th challenge, Emily was our hostess and she had an unusual challenge. She wanted us to pick a famous painting and use it as an inspiration to make a card.
Here is the painting I chose. It's titled Rosa Kosmeen by Heidi Reil. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had the perfect designer paper to create my masterpiece.
I used the "painted blooms" collection from Stampin'-Up. I let the designer paper do the work and I just stamped my sentiment.
My card colors are blackberry bliss and rose red. And, that's my card for today. Time to bring this post to a close. So until next time.......God bless.
