If you're familiar with Jingle Belles you
know that their challenge each week is to make a new Christmas card, and in their words, thus avoiding holiday mayhem. Well, I am waaaayyyy behind, having made only two cards. I started out making a card to enter in the challenge and discovered I hadn't any Christmas foliage of any kind. I then found a stamp set in the top of the closet I had yet to use. Two of the stamps were holly! Yahhh for the good guys! After much trial and error, I came up with this...
I took my photos and since I had already posted once, I set everything aside.
Well, this morning when I showed the Penmaker my card, he said the one side was unfinished looking. Since I had so much trouble with the dog gone thing in the first place, I agreed and got everything back out. Now what to do... more holly, I guess!
So I stamped holly, cut holly and glued holly until I thought it finally
looked better than the way before. Added just a touch of Stickles Clear Rock Candy to the tips.
Now I'm happy! Can't say the same for the Penmaker...
the poor man... He bought some expensive wood to make a pen for a friend and has had everything go wrong that possibly can. If he ever finishes it, I'll show you the results.
Have a Happy Day!
