And sitting by the fire, looking at the beautifully decorated Christmas tree, being thankful that we have a nice, warm home.
And after I shipped the girls off to Grandma's house, I stamped! That was, after we sang *Grandma got ran over by a reindeer*. We danced and laughed at the thought of poor ol' Grandma getting run over on her way to pick up the girls!!
Onto my card, I'm winding down on my Christmas cards but I'm still into the Christmas colors. So I opted for red today(kinda easing into Valentine colors), using Karen Lockhart's Itty Bitty Birds. I colored the image with Copic markers, using my Colorless Blender on the birds' stomach areas. Images were cut and layered with Spellbinder's Long Rectangle Dies. Sentiment and ribbon is from Papertrey Ink. Patterned papers from My Mind's Eye and Cosmo Cricket.
For a finishing touch, I used an oval acrylic sticker and cut a little flag for the sentiment. It's nice to add a few more cards to my regular stash and perhaps get a head start on next year's birthday cards.
