Wow. Making a card just for fun! What is that? :)
Today we have been just hanging out around the house - trying to recover from the festivities. Sadly, we aren't quite finished as some of the family on my side (who are 3 hours away) fell ill the morning we were supposed to drive to visit! Yikes. We've had to postpone until everyone is better. So, we were home today unexpectedly and took advantage of that by doing NOTHING. Seriously. We had some errands to run and didn't get out until 4pm. :D Of course, it was storming all morning, so that was part of our excuse.
I wanted to play along with the current Lawnscaping Challenge - once I saw it was still active for Christmas cards and I had received a new stamp in the mail from the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. :)
I paper pieced this cute little fox and adhered him on a card base I had sponged with MFT Blue Yonder ink over the Tim Holtz Fair Isle stencil. I had fun trimming all these little pieces from scrap papers and was much happier with the result than my original colored and hand-trimmed image. (Boo) As I watched a documentary about the 1990's (thoroughly depressing after an hour or so of that!) I trimmed and glued and was happy as a little songbird.
I stamped the sentiment using Milo's ABC's and then added the twine and Peace, Love, & Joy sequins.
I'm also playing along with (CAS)E This Sketch and Less Is More "Homespun" challenge.
I hope everyone had a lovely holiday and are able to enjoy some much needed downtime.
Thanks SO much for stopping by to visit! I hope you will come again soon.
