It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Everywhere I turn right now it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas! I am in a frenzy making my Mother her Christmas cards this year. I am honoring her sweet cat, Charlie, with the stamped image and am using Shimmerz to paint everything in. They are a labor of love and I hope that she enjoys using them!

Here is the prototype that I made at a crop on Saturday..


I have simplified the red scalloped part by only punching one side of the paper, but other than that, this is about what they will be! Each is individually hand-painted with the Shimmerz. Did I mention that I'm making over 40 of them for her?? I think I'm a bit crazy.., but what else do I have to do while I'm laid up with a bum ankle and leg?

Hope that today is a joyful one for you!
