Yes, It's January!
I enjoyed making a Christmas card today, thanks to Peggy Lacktorin in the group Christmas All Year Long at Show and Tell Cards and Scrap Pages. She extended the challenge to make a Christmas card using silver and gold, and any other colors of our choice. I used a grayish-blue base card stock that has metallic flecks. The image and the red piece are from a card we received this past Christmas. The silver and gold are leftovers from the cards that I made to send. I embossed the sentiment (from SU) and the ivy (from Michael's) with gold embossing powder. Although I don't have a picture, the inside of the card is gold embossed on a piece of ivory card stock with Melanie Muenchinger's sentiment "May the spirit of Christmas bring you PEACE. The gladness of Christmas give you HOPE. The warmth of Christmas grant you LOVE." This is from her Festive Frame set by Gina K. Designs which is a favorite of mine. Hope you enjoyed the early taste of Christmas!
