That's what this stamp set Home For Christmas says to me - old fashioned Christmas!!! This is my favorite time of year, I absolutely love the excitement, the shopping, the baking, the eating, the seeing old friends and family, and yep, I even love the decorating and the wrapping!!! I am like a little kid at Christmas time, I can't help it! My husband does not understand it, but he indulges me, lol! So, I am in love with this stamp set, and can't believe I waited soooo long to get it! Isn't it fabulous??!! I love to watercolor it and I think this one may be one I do for my Christmas cards. I need to decide soon although I have enough individual ones to mail out now - heehee!!! But, nope, gotta have a family card, and although it may not be this exact one, it WILL be with this image! So, onto the card!! I water colored this using my aquapainter and then used iridescent ice for the snow on the ground, on the tree,and around the door - here is a closeup so you can see how pretty it sparkles! I also did a lot of stitching on this card, something I have not been doing a lot of lately, and I missed it! I just love it - makes it look like real snow! I had total fun making this card, and it WAS just for fun, no sketches, no challenges, no DT work, no craft fair stuff, just for F-U-N! I need to do more of that, I think - that is one of my goals anyway, lol!! It's all fun, just a different kind, right?!!! Anyway, I am off to lie back down, still not feeling all that well, but hoping tomorrow I will be back to my normal self, or at least close to it! So, I will leave you the recipe and wish you all a FABULOUS day!!!
