Countdown to Christmas #12

Happy Monday... Nothing new here just another "manic Monday"... nah... not really manic at all, but I do remember that song fondly.

I've got Christmas Card #12 for you today and I have yet to get behind so far. I was the lucky recipient of this very pretty stamp set called Singing Birds from Pink Persimmon. I love this stamp set... but I wanted it to fit my needs to make a Christmas card and the end result is the card below.


The set doesn't come with the Merry Christmas sentiment so I added my own from THIS set at Clear Dollar Stamps. It fit perfectly.

I colored my image with my Copics , added some Christmas red stickles, and used some Judikins diamond glaze to the leaves. I know its hard to see in the photo but it adds a great touch to the card since there aren't a lot of other embellishments.

And of course, I had to use my left over Basic Grey Wassail paper. Finally, I got to play with some Tim Holtz ink and the sponges and they are indeed very cool.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day. Its early release today so the oldest will be home right after lunch!
