Christmas Wishes

Hi there,

Finally Hub's last issue of the year  is bagged up and ready to be taken to the Post Office for delivery to subscribers.  We've had a bit of a delay at the printers so its been hurry up and wait since we returned from our visit to Ohio. You'd think I should be able to just sit down and make some cards while we were waiting...but it doesn't work that way with my brain. One thing at a time. As I have gotten older my ability to multi-task successfully has diminished.

As usual when I need a good swift kick in the mojo, I turn to challenges.  Helping me out today are The Flower Challenge, Color Throwdown, and Addicted to Stamps and more.




My older stamp is from Stampendous, called Cling Poinsettia. It is one of the first stamps I acquired. I embossed it in silver (neutral) on bristol. Then colored in the biggest bloom cluster in red, coral and green. The panel is matted in dark gray and layered onto a lighter gray cardbase. The sentiment is from PTI and is white embossed on dark gray.




Thank you so very much for stopping by.

Really pretty card, I like the spotlight coloring. I like your old stamp, I hadn’t seen it before!

I think I know how you feel when you are stressed about one thing, it is hard to get anything else unrelated done. Glad you will be able to relax now!
