Easy peasy


I had a chance to play and wanted a quick, easy Christmas card – I ended up with 3.

I really like the look of burgundy and Kraft for old fashioned Christmas cards – so I used Burgundy and Kraft for these cards with some Whisper White Craft ink.

The end cards are single layer cards, embossed with Nesties, then stamped. My middle card is my favorite – quick and easy, with a touch of old fashion Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!



Stamps: SU Lovely as a Tree, SU Christmas Greetings

CS and DP: Burgundy, Kraft

Inks, markers and coloring tools: SU Whisper White Craft

See THIS is why I love to blog hop. I would never have thought of stamping that image on to craft and it is stunning. I am SO glad Mr Brown is bringing me a pack of craft right now!

These are so elegant looking Michelle!! The PTI Picnic basket set is a great one. Has about 4 different styles of baskets and a variety of "items" to put into the basket.
I recommend it!

The middle one really stands out with the rounded corners, but all three are very elegant! Great color combo!

Lovely...I am so trying to come up with something simple...like you would think my kneecaps have been shot off.....I keep ending up with complicated and we all know that doesn't work so well at Xmas time!
