Good day, my bloggy friends! It's T-9 and counting, down, that is. For those of you that celebrate Christmas is your tree up? Tomorrow's the day for my family...my DH and I will get the decorations down from the attic and set about creating a wonderland before our sons arrive back home. What a surprise that will greet them when they swing
open the door!
I have to admit I was inspired by the lovely Martha StewartPaperCraft Star Challenge 25. This Oxford Impressions image is perfect for the tree, don't you think? I stamped it on a very pale blue with VersaFine Olympic Green and then fussy cut. The room was roughly created with 'moulding' and flooring (cut from a piece of wood wallpaper). The window, Stamp Francisco, inked on velum with Adirondack Snow Cap and embossed with clear ep. The gifts under the tree are from the long retired Basic Grey Figgy Pudding sheet that was all presents. The Ways to Use it Challenge on SCS today was to used Glitter. I added Stickles in three shades to the ornaments on the tree and a brass charm for the star at the very top. The Merry Christmas is inked with ChalkBox Warm Red. And a bit of twill in robins' egg blue.
Thanks so much for the gift of your comments...if you would leave a comment, let me know what is on YOUR wish list this season. I'll tell you my #1 wish is to live a less harried life!
