Time Is Flying By!

I cannot believe it, Christmas will be here on Thursday! Sorry I have not posted more, but every day last week was hectic. There were last minute gifts, more Christmas cards to make, our annual Christmas Cantada and oh yes, my dear hubby had back surgery on Wednesday! I promise, the back surgery was my number one priority. Medical technology has really advanced, DH was in and out the same day. They used an X-Stop (no, not an x-box!) for lumbar spinal decompression. I spent all Saturday afternoon compressing my spine, standing at my countertop and wrapping presents for 3 hours! I made twelve more Christmas cards, there are always a few special ones I make besides my mass mailing. I want to share a few with you: This is the Sarah Kay set, "Angels Rejoice". I used PTI design paper and my Copics for coloring. This is my entry for Summer's Roses On Paper Challenge Blog. This card is actually made from two Eat Cake Graphics sets. The DP is from Basic Grey's Wassail papers, Copics for coloring and I used my Cuttlebug to create the stucco frame around the window. The two cards above were designed using a new paper collection, Winter Wonderland from Dovecraft carried by Susana's Custom Art and Card Design available here. Susana carries the darling "faerie" stamps I am so in love with! The second card image is one from The Angel Company set, "Christmas Season". I embossed the image in silver and used DCWV silver card stock for the mat and flourishes.

I finally inked up my Whiff Of Joy "Willow With Lantern" to create this card: Again, I used Copics and Basic Grey's Wassail DP. She is just so elegant looking! I purchased this WOF from Roses On Paper. Summer carries WOF, Magnolia and Sarah Kay stamps in her store. I'm not sure if I will be posting any more until after Christmas. The relatives start arriving Tuesday afternoon and I still have lots to do! I would like to go ahead and wish everyone a very Merry Christmas from our house to yours.
