I can hardly believe it's Christmas Eve!! Oh how I love to be able to schedule my posts ahead, because as this is posting I'll be having a wonderful time enjoying great food & great company with my family! We've had this tradition forever, the kids in the family receive their gifts from the aunts & uncles, and they pass the time by playing and snacking…my boys are a little old for playing with toys now (15 & 11), but they still love to play with their little cousins, and of course as big as they are (5' 11" & 5' 6" yikes!!), they love to eat!!
Anyway, before I get onto this week's sketch, I wanted to wish you & your family a fun & safe holiday season with lots of fabulous new memories to cherish!
Let's celebrate this joyous occasion with some Blog Candy!!
To enter to win my blog candy, I'm asking that you comment here with your favorite part of the holidays, or holiday tradition! We enjoyed one of my favorite holiday traditions last night, we've done it ever since I can remember with the boys…we all hop in the car, bring along dinner from some fast food restaurant, and ride around for hours looking for the best Christmas light displays. The boys were especially funny last night, rating each house with 1-10…I was disappointed to find out they ranked our house a 4 because we only have "boring" white lights… especially since they were even giving 1/2 a point for just having the light on by the front door LOL!!! It really made for a fun time, and the boys got so giggly and goofy…I loved every minute of it!! I'm SO looking forward to hearing your favorite part of the holidays or tradition!!
Here's my candy:
It's a brand new unopened A Cute Christmas clear mount stamp set 🙂 I hope you like it, and good luck!!
Now, onto the sketch:
I used the Elements of Style set, stamped in Black StazOn on Whisper White card stock. For the bottom layer I stamped it full strength, and for the top layer I stamped it off first to make it lighter. Then I added a bit of color with a Blender Pen and Pretty in Pink and Pear Pizzazz ink. I added some Basics Pearls and Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon, along with Pretty in Pink & Basic Black card stock.
I hope you'll find time to check out the other Operators' creations, enter for blog candy, and play along with our sketch challenge this week!! We love to see your creations!
