Merry Christmas

This week the Inspired Stamps DT was asked to create a Christmas card. The tree is from Ask, Seek, Knock and saying is from Winter Ruth. I kept it simple so it would be easy to mail.

Sending my love

I found this wonderful image already colored while cleaning my desk. It is Trena with Heart by Hambo Stamps. This is for the Hambo Hoedown challenge to use wood. I did a wood stamp on the base and the blue was embossed and sanded with a wood grain embossing folder.

Inspired Stamps

This week the Inspired Stamps DT was to use a character. There are so many cute characters at Inspired Stamps. I choose my favorite one, HLO girl studying. This one reminds me of my daughter. I choose to do something different for me which was not to color her. I paired it with John 1:1. I am sharing both cards. The first card is the one that I like most. The second one I liked the layout but it was hard to read the saying and image. Just goes to show you that not always my first try works. The first card uses black and a darker green ink to show case the image and saying.
