Christmas Past and Future

Is it hard for you to believe that in a twinkling of an eye that Christmas has come and gone!

So emotional isn't it. But what a wonderful day to celebrate not only that perfect gift of Jesus Christ, but to be able to spend it with precious family and best friends.

What treasures we have of precious memories of yesterday and bright hope for tomorrow.

This card is a glimmer of the Christmas past and a sparkle for Christmas Future.

I have used 4 different stamps to creat this collage card. Distress inks and stickles have faded and enhance the torn edged image.

Hope this inspires you to combine all the various stamps that you have in your stash of goodies.

In Stillness of the Season

Wanting just to say that I have appreciated everyone who has visited my site. This has certainly been a fun adventure and so inspirational as I continue to meet others that share the same love of card making as I do.
I don't know about you but I love being in the Stillness of the silence of special moments.
We are blessed so much in this country. We are warm, we are fed, we have an abundance and most of all the freedom to worship the new born King.
I hope that you are able to spend time in the stillness of this wonderful time of the year.
I pray that God will bless each one of you as you spend moments with friends and families.
It will be busy for us all for the next few days, so be safe in all that you do.
Merry Christmas to each of you.

Season's Greetings

It is Friday and Christmas is in the air.I know that just north of us the snow is falling but not here...I love the snow.
Here is a Christmas Card from the wonderful stamps from Oxford Impressions. I love these stamps and of course the photo stamps.Colouring these images isn't that hard, I use waterdown felt markers.I save the styrofoam trays from the grocery store.They are a perfect, inexpensive pallette.Taking the colour you want,colour it on your tray and then with a thin haired brush, just keep watering it down til you get your desired shade.Test your colour on paper and when you are happy with it,then apply to your stamped image.It is better to start very light and then darken until get your desired shade. Try it...practice is sure to bring great results.
Enjoy every moment of the season and try to remember to savour the goodness of family and friends.
