O Christmas tree


It's a
In celebration of the hop, Sandy Allnock is giving away spots in a class of their choice to 3 lucky commenters along the bloghop - so be sure to comment everywhere! If the winner has already purchased a class during the current sale, that class fee can be refunded. Winner will be posted on Sandy’s blog on December 1, 2017. Good luck!

     My card today uses stamps from the newest release from Purple Onion Designs, Twas the Night Before Christmas.  And guess what!!!!  You can buy them and all the other stamps in the POD store for 25% off starting today through December 8th.


     For my card I have used Red, Claus, and the Pine tree Farm stamps.  The pines were fussy cut and popped up over the lightly inked background.  Red and Claus were also fussy cut and popped up.  I added some snow with a splatter of watered down white acrylic paint.


     Here's the hop list.  Have fun and don't forget to comment for a chance on that Sandy Allnock class.  Woohoo!

     Happy shopping!

  23. I am 85 yrs. old and receive a very limited income so I'm limited as to what I can purchase. I love making cards, especially watercolor. I'm not very good at it yet, but I keep trying. TFS your God given talent with all of us in the paper crafting world.
    Thanks very much.

  30. So incredibly sweet! I love so many of the PO images but my limited colouring skills keeps me on the sidelines, gazing in admiration at the magic you and others create. Guess the only way to improve is to do a bit of shopping and a whole lot of practicing. Definitely inspired!
