Countdown to Christmas #18 and #19

Hey everyone! Happy Sunday, although for many of you its gone and for me its almost gone! The weather has been beautiful here and its so nice to see the sun out.

I needed to catch up a bit and get my Christmas cards posted today and I will be caught up for next week and back on track.

This first card uses a stamp set that I got a couple of years ago I believe on clearance. It is a Martha Stewart set and to be honest they don't ink up with dye inks at all well. I used Memento inks this time and they worked pretty well. I paired the images up with some Cosmo Cricket and kept to my minimal layering (easy mailing) and used stickles to jazz it up a bit.

My second Christmas cards uses a Stampin Up! holiday set that is very cute. A lovely friend of mine gifted this to me. I don't have the name right in front of me but I know its popular because I've seen it in the past quite often.

I paired this stamp with some tried and true favorite Basic Gray paper. I still have this stuff hanging around. Its a good thing I still like it. I used Labels 10 and the Petite Ovals to cut everything out and added some great silk ribbon to finish it off.

That's it for me today, but I am hoping to be back tomorrow with a card for the Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz tomorrow.

Thanks for visiting.
