I submitted one of these card sets (luckily before the deadline) to the Hero Arts monthly challenge.
I have a new love of kraft cardstock, and here is the set I submitted using various Hero Arts background stamps along with the Wreath of Leaves and a Paper Smooches sentiment.
Here is an example using the Large Canvas Stripes background:
Here is one with the Music Background:
Here it is with the Envelope Pattern background:
I used green tinsel embossing powder on the wreath and red and gold Stickles for some accents...see the shine? (I wanted to keep this design simple and flat for mailing purposes.)
OK, now for my other thank you notes, using mainly Hero Arts stamps with a few others sprinkled in there. (Feel free to leave me a comment if you have any questions about the stamping supplies I used.)
OK, that really does it now for Christmas cards until next year. Phew!
I want to take this opportunity to say a heartfelt thank you to all of you who follow my blog or even stop by to visit on occasion. I will be celebrating my one-year blogging anniversary on New Year's Day and I am SO glad I took the plunge! I hope to have some blog candy to give away in the new year...I'd really like to give something to my first 46 followers for being with me through 2011! (I'm still working it out in my head...I'll keep you posted on that.) In the meantime, THANK YOU again for taking the time to visit and comment...I really do appreciate it more than you know!
Best wishes for a very Happy and Healthy New Year!
Take good care,
