Sending Christmas Cheer

Happy Holidays to One and All!  I am sending Christmas cheer this year, that you and your families have a happy and blessed Christmas.

I have feverishly been working on making these my personal greetings this year. I only had to make a few, so since these are a little fancier than I normally send, I decided to spend the extra time making for my "special friends."

The main stamped image is the "Holiday Shopper" from the Deep Red Clingstamps company, and I got these through Simon Says Stamp. I used my Distressed Markers from Tim Holtz to color in the images, and then used my Wink of Stella glitter pens to add a little sparkle. The die cuts I used are from the Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles and Decorative Labels Eight sets.  The printed stock behind the stamped image is a page from the 12 Days of Christmas paper pad from Graphic 45. The rectangles are about the size of an ATC card, and let just enough of the beautiful prints show around the shopper.  The saying is  from a Christmas Greetings set from My Favorite Things.  Inside the red card base, I adhered a 3" wide strip of  Christmas patterned paper that I could write my greeting on.

They are now done and on their way across the USA, so I can now play a little with some of my other Christmas stamps for cards that I will attach to gifts or hand deliver to friends here in town.
I hope you all have a wonderful week full of baking and shopping and getting together with family and friends. Enjoy!
