Colour Q #218 and Retro Sketches #92

Good evening!

I'm popping in to share one of the cards I made today after getting home from a little Christmas shopping. I only had a couple of hours to spare before The Piglets turned the day to chaos so, of course, I spent that time getting crafty and watching a DVR'd Lifetime Cheesy Christmas Movie. But that probably goes without saying.

I combined this week's LERVELY Colour Q colors with the Retro Sketch.

I used various papers to pull the colors I wanted and my PTI Mistletoe and Holly stamp set. Earlier this week I decided it wasn't getting enough attention. Also, today while out -- ahem -- Christmas shopping, I snagged the Spellbinders Lacey Circles nesting dies on sale at JoAnn's. I'm not after many (if any) of the nesting dies because of my Cricut and Art Philosophy and Artiste cartridges, but the Lacey Circles have been calling to me lately. So I've been surreptitiously keeping my eyes peeled for them. So, if you view many of my posts, you may get sick of seeing this shape! Just a fair warning.

I stamped the mistletoe in PTI's Simply Chartreuse and the berries in CTMH's Tulip, the sentiment using Black VersaFine pigment ink by Tsukineko.
Thanks for stopping by to visit! Hope you are having a great Holiday Season thus far!
