Today I have a Christmas Card. This isn't my first Christmas card of the 2012 season but it is certainly one of the first. I mentioned in previous posts that I made a commitment to myself to only buy one Christmas stamp set this year. Why? Well, because I already have a lot of sets, they are very well marketed and if left undisciplined I'd buy too many and I only make Christmas cards for 2 months of the year.
So, I deliberatly waited till October to choose my set because I wanted to wait and see most of the offerings. I didn't want to wait till November because I didn't want to put off starting my cards till then.
So the stamp set I settled on this year is a cute set from Taylored Expression. I kind of cheated and got two - I got the Joy stamp and the cool gang set. The cool gang is really a winter card but it works well for christmas cards. The joy stamp is just one stamp - not a set - but is only really a Christmas image.
Below is the sketch. This sketch is really nice, but I had a hard time finding so many different patterned papers that go together. I bought my stamp, but haven't gotten any new papers this year and my stock is running low.
My DH and I are off to dinner at one of the other elders home. They want us there at 4:30. That seems early but my DH is giving me the hairy eye ball to go, so time to run. Thanks so much for visiting my blog today. Have a great day.
