Merry Christmas Eve!

I have a couple more Christmas cards to share with you today. I made this one using the Home set from Artistic Outpost. The image is stamped in Fired Brick and the edges were sponged with Vintage Photo. For the greeting I used Walnut Stain. I tried to make the barn look like it was covered in a blanket of snow by adding some Diamond Dust. For the finishing touch I wrapped some Ecru floss around the card and added a button and some punched branches.

The second card is a 4 1/4 inch square card with no dimensionals because I wanted to make something that would go through the mail easily and not cost extra postage. I will just use a regular invitation size envelope.

I'm glad that I did my grocery shopping last night before the blizzard hit. We don't have too much snow on the ground yet but they're forecasting snow all day today and 6-8 more inches tomorrow with really high winds so at least I don't have to worry about getting to the store.

Merry Christmas everyone and I hope you all have safe travels! Thanks so much for stopping.
