Joy, Peace & Love.....

Too early for Christmas you say???? Not if you play with Sparkle!!! She has a challenge blog called Christmas Card Challenges where each week there is a challenge involving the making of a Christmas Card. This week's challenge was to make a Christmas related card that exemplifies why you love Christmas. Well, I guess one of my favorite parts (and there are a few) is giving gifts (and lets just face it - receiving them too)! That's why I chose ths cute little Tilda to showcase my love of the holiday! So why make Christmas cards now you ask??? Isn't it too early??? Nope - not if you're a crafter and LOVE giving away (or selling) your handmade creations!! Get started early this season and join us - that way you'll have way more time to enjoy the holidays with your family this year instead of that last minute madness that strikes us cardmakers when we realize we have two weeks until Christmas and we still have to make (AND MAIL) our cards!!! Yes, it happens every year to you too....doesn't it??!

This card was made with my aqua brush and Tim inks again. I used bundled sage, weathered wood, antique linen, tattered rose, firebrick red and vintage photo. Crazy how many shades you can get from just using a few colors! :) I am loving this new technique!!! Takes a little longer - but I love it! :)

Hope you can play along this week!! I'd love to see you there!! :)

    Nothing wrong with making Christmas cards all year long ! Whoo hoo ! I may have to visit Sparkle's blog and join in !

  2. I love it Lisa and I'm so glad that you are playing along! You are going to have to show me how you use the distress inks next weekend with Donna! :D
