My Favorite Things Winter Stamping


We had a very Merry Christmas in the Gates household this year.  The plumbing and heating tech just left our home.  A new water heater was put in-YIKES!  Not the cheapest thing to have installed.  My husband was able to score a dented 50 gallon water heater for cost at work so that gave us a little better total, but not by much.

So on to the post....                       

Today's image is from My Favorite Things. Love the stuff from the Pure Innocence collection! I used papers from Basic Grey and added coloring with my Copic markers.  I love adding winter blues and greens to my cards this time of the year-so cozy!
Hope you enjoy!

2010 Christmas Card


I am finally posting my 2010 Christmas card.  This year I made a minimal amount of cards-40.  I decided that it would be enough-well it wasn't.  Less time and a more challenging card is what I was dealing with this year.

So here is what I came up with:
And the inside features:


Lots of painting with Distress Ink and perfect pearls.  In real life it looks all sparkly and pretty.  I hope you enjoy and have a very Merry Christmas!
