Christmas Pine

Yep, I'm already working on Christmas cards. Working on Christmas cards in September seems early to me too, but I couldn't resist when I received this set. Living in the mountains, I just love this Ornamental Pine stamp. This great design was inspired by Dawn Olchefske's card.

Love You Always

The house is still under construction, but we are staying here for a few days. So, of course, I am taking advantage. Have I said how much I really like the "Gorgeous Grunge" stamp set? It's perfect for making cards that have that "not too feminine" look, which is what I was going for when I made this set of cards.

Stamps - Gorgeous Grunge, Something to Say
Card Stock - Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow, Tangelo Twist, Very Vanilla
Ink - Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow, Tangelo Twist, Jet Black StazOn
