Did I ever tell y'all about the time my two little green "kids" (no, they're not recycled, lol, they are actually green, as in parrots) had a really bad day. Which translates into mom had a really bad day (yes, they call me mama). I mentioned to The Man (aka: hubby) that sometimes I wish they could go off to school, like regular kids. That night I dreamed we sent them away to boarding school. Ahhhh..if only. Can't you just see these two green birds packing their little suitcases?
Anyway, I have a fairly simple Christmas card today, featuring this wonderful French Horn and part of the Christmas Multi Greeting. It was colored with markers and I added some highlights with a gold gel pen. I inked just part of the greeting and stamped it, then die cut with a rectangle die. I had a little punched strip left over from yesterday so tacked it on the bottom after adding a narrow red layer. The poinsettia is also a die cut. It looked a little plain on the bottom so I added an embossed strip and my 5.50 x 4.25 card was finished.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
