One Week til Christmas!

Can you believe that?!  My kids are so excited. Easton started asking about 65 days ago how many days til Christmas so I made a countdown for him on my calendar.  It doesn't seem that long ago that we were at 50 days!  I'm past the point of making Christmas cards, I think. Although the color combo at Dynamic Duos would have been beautiful with Lovely as a Tree!
I might have to do a winter card in the new year for a Stamp Camp using those colors. :) I didn't have much time to play today so I wanted to keep this card simple and also try out some of my new toys.  This isn't at ALL where I was planning on this card going, but that happens sometimes in the world of making cards! lol
Brett was finally able to go back to work today after months of feeling terrible and a week and a half after having surgery to fuse some discs together in his neck. He is feeling so much better now and I wanted to make him a card to let him know how happy he makes me and how proud I am of him. I thought this was a nice masculine color combo. I paired it with a few things that I also consider to be pretty masculine, houndstooth, pennants and chevrons. I really like the combination of it all!

Stamp Set: Perfect Pennants
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Marina Mist, Whisper White
Ink: Marina Mist
Tools: Houndstooth Embossing Folder, Banner Framelits
Accessories: Marina Mist Chevron Ribbon, Subtles Candy Dots, Dimensionals

  1. Great card! Perfect for your hubby! Sounds like his recovery is going well. I hear ya on the kiddos asking about Christmas. Although my 5 year old was telling me tonight about his reindeer that he purchased months ago while riding his bike to the store. :)
