I put the close-up first today, just to be different!
I got another Christmas card made, and I'm really happy about that! I took a stamping break from painting the walls inside our house. I am SO not used to hard labour! and I am feeling muscles I forgot I had! I sure am grateful for my daughter Valerie's help! Mike, Jan and her BF also contributed a lot, but we still aren't done! Painting a house is a TON of work, but I'll be so glad when I see the result!
I stamped "Mudzie and Choppers Caroling" from High Hopes Stamps onto 140 lb water color paper (Montval, by Canson) with Versafine Onyx Black ink and water colored the image using Twinkling H20's. You can find links to stores that carry this line of stamps if you look on the right side bar.
I did the layout from my head, but I'm sure it has been done a thousand times before, it is fairly simple and popular. I used scraps of DP, so I'm sorry that I can't tell you who makes it :-(
Distressing done with the edge of a metal ruler (the best tool for the job, in my humble opinion).
I have some big secrets... and I can't say any more than that right now... but, I just wanted to tell you how excited I am and how HARD IT IS FOR ME TO STAY QUIET!!!!!!
So stay tuned... its only a matter of time before I can let the secrets out!!!!!!
Thanks for visiting my blog today!! You are a blessing!!
