Still Stuffed!

I don't know about all of you, but this gal ate too much, too late yesterday! Lol.... We had an awesome day. DD was in the America's Christmas Parade in St. Louis yesterday morning. Since she was already there, she went to the airport to pick DS up when he arrived. They got here about 4:30, and we had dinner ready to eat!

I have a card to show today that I made just because I loved the image! It sort of encompasses all of the holiday decorations, boughs, ornaments, candy canes.... This image of total sweetness was created by our Stef, aka Glitterbabe! You can find it at The Stamping Boutique, along with many other adorable images by Stef and by Tracey Malnofski, owner of the Boutique. If you get a chance, drop by Stef's blog and tell her how wonderful she is!!! I hope to have some more of her images soon! The darling wee sentiment is The Angel Company's 'Tag Tidbits'!

Hope you enjoy my holiday card! I trimmed the small section of bough, and left it out of the Nestie when I punched, as it wouldn't all fit!!!

Images were colored with colored pencils and blended with mineral spirits.

Have a great Saturday!

Food for thought: I intend to live forever - so far, so good!

  11. Great card Patti! Sounds like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, I eat way to much also.

  12. I don't know how people normally read blogs, but the first thing I do is look at all the pictures first, then go back and read about them. So, when I did this, I too thought to myself that I really loved the images on this! I love how you did the border punch on this one so that it stands alone when the card is opened. Great touch! Best, Curt

  13. Love your card! the border is perfect! So glad both of your children got to be with you on Thanksgiving!
