Holiday Cards

What have I been up to that has kept me away? This is 70 of the 150 holiday card that I sent out this year! Lots of stash used which makes me super happy. It was a lot of work though and I still have cards for our families to do as well. Looking forward to playing with all the other cute holiday stamps I have in my collection.

I hope you're having a great holiday season. Stay crafty!

Winter Wonder Bear

Over Black Friday "weekend" I got a lot of stamps. Yeah. I made my first order with Purple Onion Designs since they were having a big sale (along with everyone!!!) and today *eighteen* stamps arrived. I had to colour at least one immediately and I picked Icicle. He's so cute and he looks great with my Caran d'Ache Pablos. I used watercolour paper for this and he's a "second stamping", the darker version is being saved for later. I used Lawn Fawn paper and some of my Prima flowers to dress him up. I probably should have added some green to the card, but oh well!

I hope you like him. And dealing with Purple Onion for the first time went well, so I'd recommend them. Good quality stamps, but no packaging or anything, just raw unmounted rubber packaged in tissue paper.

Snowflakes on Your Tongue

Eight new Whiff of Joy stamps arrived from Austria today. I found it ironic since they say "made in the USA" all over them, but whatever. We ship them there, they ship them back at a higher price, lol! Anyway, I love them. I'm very happy that though they were cheap they're not insanely small or something. So I had to colour one right away. I freakin' LOVE this little kitty and she's not exclusively holiday, she's winter, and it's been raining the last few days which I ADORE so that feels like Winter to me! I tried to keep with the blue/purple but I wanted to make her a nice combination of orange instead of going with grey, since the snow is grey.

I hope you like her, and I hope you're enjoying me posting more often. I'm still not done with these holiday cards. I think I'm stalling. So much. But they're cluttering my desk, so I'll have to get to it at some point.
