Winter Wishes for You!!


It has been a very busy weekend at the Reid house!! I worked the late shift on Friday night and Al got home from Calgary shortly after I did. It was really great to see him after two weeks of being away. Unfortunately, I had to work all day on Saturday. I even got up and left for work an hour early as there was the garage sale at the local sb store to go to. It wasn't as busy as last time, but I still scored a few good deals. I'll go in today to pick up what's left of my stuff and she how much credit I have.

After working all day on Saturday, Al and I went Christmas shopping and Emileigh went babysitting. We got a few presents out of the way which is good. Then on Sunday, the two of them slept in while I got up early and spent the ENTIRE day filling Christmas card orders. I'm happy to say that I completed another 25 and only have about 12 left to go!! I took a break in the evening to have some dinner and we watched a movie together!! That was fun!!

Today's card was for last week's Ways to Use It Challenge which was to use any kind of stitching on your card, whether it was real stitches, stamped stitches or faux stitches. I obviously went with the faux kind!

I stamped the cutie pie Polar Bear stamp from High Hopes called Bear-ly Warming Up on Fabriano watercolour paper in Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink. The designer papers I chose were from the Flowers for You package by SU. I coloured the image in using those colours which include Tempting Turquoise, Certainly Celery, Lovely Lilac, Regal Rose, then Close to Cocoa for the hot chocolate and Sahara Sand for the shading. I then used my mat pack and Signo white gel pen to do all the faux stitching and the ribbon is from a bunch that I won by May Arts. I stamped the marshmallows and layered them on a Certainly Celery circle scallop and pop dotted everything. The sentiment is from High Hopes as well!

Oh and the winner of last week's challenge is..........Joan Ervin!!! Please send me your snail mail address and I will send out your prize!! Things are so busy leading up to the holidays that I think I'm going to take a break from the challenges until after the New Year. So if you'd like to make some suggestions for challenges, feel free to email them to me.

Have a stampin' great day!!!

How do you go about getting orders for Christmas cards? I really want to start something like that, making cards, invitations, etc. for other people. Any advice on how you got started? *penny*
