The Christmas Gang's All Here

It's looking mighty Christmasy in my stamp room lately.  I'm really getting into the spirit of it now.  Birthday cards for this month are done, Thanksgiving cards are ready to mail, so why not?

Today I've got one that's all cute and fun.  When we went camping in our trailer last month I took my Copics and all the digis I had printed up, but the only one I colored was this Bugaboo "Christmas Trio Blocks".  Now it's made into a card and ready to share.




There's some more of my new Christmas ribbon doubling as a sentiment.  First time use of those cute little Christmas trees, too.  Over a period of time I've taken advantage of the greatly reduced close-out prices on Die-namites dies at Dies R Us.  These trees are called "Slender Trees".  No longer available, but they still have some nice dies for picking and choosing.  They always look better when cut than they do on the packaging.

Each tree is cut once from green glitter paper and once from Neenah 110 lb white, then layered for a little bit of dimension.




I mentioned camping...




LuLu spotted her collar where it was hanging to dry, and she wanted to put her "jewelry" back on.  Wally and LuLu loved the trailer and the whole camping experience.  When there are a few unclaimed days and a break in the weather we can't wait to go again.

It's a busy time for stampers, but what a good time it is!  I'm glad you stopped by for this little respite.  See you again soon!
