Hello, blogger friends! It's Monday again so that means making some more Christmas cards for the Merry Monday #20 blog challenge. I saw the sketch on LeAnne's blog and immediately thought of this stamp, the only long Christmas stamp I own. When I went to the Merry Monday blog, I saw that one of the members of the design team, Wendy, used the same stamp. I hope I am still okay to use this stamp. I went for a totally different look, something else I had in mind before I looked at the samples.
I decided to go for a black and white card this week. I used the snow man from Let it Snow, and I embossed him in white on some black card stock. I then layered whisper white and basic black and embossed a layer of white. My sentiment came from Petite Pairs. It was an easy card to make, and I do think it would be easy to mass produce. Sometimes it's nice to do an easy card. . .and I really like when I look at a sketch and immediately know what I want to do. Yes!
I'm ending today with a picture of me with my two granddaughters. Their family is headed to New Hampshire for their dad's graduation from the University of New Hampshire where he will receive his doctorate in history. Way to go, Ian! Even better news: he has been offered a job, a tenured track position at Virginia State University. Woo-hoo! Ian and family stopped in Fort Wayne for a couple hours, and we all had lunch together. Fun times!
Thanks for stopping by! (I get to see my grandson and soon to be born grandson number 2 next month!)
