I'm back from my much needed vacation, and I'm feeling totally refreshed. I wish I had another week to just stay home and be a bum, but alas, work is waiting for me to return tomorrow. *sigh* On a happier note, I'm super content that I got to spend a whole week with the people I love the most. M even joined us for a couple days, and everyone loves him. I'll post a few pics soon, if I remember. :)
I'm happy to say that I was able to get another Christmas card done. This weeks challenge over at the CCC is to incorporate the emboss resist technique in your card. For all of the details, click HERE.
I've gone back to taking my photos outside. Although my light box was functional, I am MUCH happier with my outdoor photos. For this card, I did something out of the norm for me, I distressed. I've used my distress inks before, but I seldom distress my edges, or have anything that looks like it has been distressed. I like the added texture, but I'm not sure I'll do this too often. I'm a clean lines kinda girl, so everything has to be that way. lol I'm loving these colors together, and I like how my card turned out. I'm happy to have another card done as well. I'm entering my card into the following challenges as well.
Card Caravan #22 - Christmas in July
Totally Gorjuss #140 - It's Christmas
Card Crafter's Circle #31 - Christmas in July
Jellypark Challenge - Christmas in July
Winter Wonderland - Sentiment as focal point.
I do hope you'll head over to see what the other elves have created for you today. They're all pretty fantastic.
I'll be back soon with another something crafty for ya!
