Let's Get This Started . . . Again!

Well, I thought that I would give this blogging thing a try, again. There are several blogs that I love to look at and it got me thinking about starting my own. Well, I got one started, and now i'm starting over. I'm still going to keep up my normal gallery of stamped stuff on my website, but this will give me the opportunity to share a lot more and should be fun!

It is hard for me to believe that Thanksgiving is just a couple of days away, and I already have started on my Christmas cards. Usually procrastination gets the best of me and I get them done at the very last minute. I got a head start this year though. To save time, I decided to keep them very simple this year. My husband and our son both play roller hockey. The season just started so our schedule is very hectic right now with games three nights a week on top of all of our other normal stuff. So quick and simple is really going to help me with my Christmas cards this year.

I am really liking this clean layout on the plain white card. Not only is it simple, but it just looks so clean and crisp. I acutally got the idea for this card from one that Eva Costigan (a fellow TAC demonstror) made. The ornament is stamped on the white, and then I stamped the ornament again on a piece of patterned paper. Cut out the patterned image and then pieced over the image on white. No coloring to do at all, and it gives it a bit of relief. Plus it looks like some of those simple greeting cards that you see in the stores that are so trendy right now. Very cool!

Now I just need to get started on my decorating for Christmas and I will be set.
