Sleigh Ride

I have been getting quite a good jump on my Christmas cards and thought I would share one that I just finished. I recently won this large stamp on Ebay for 99 cents, so this is the first time I am stamping with it. It is an older stamp from Hampton Art Stamps, but it delivered nice crisp lines.

After starting with Green Apple Pure Luxury card stock as a base, I added dp from Memory Box and their Mistletoe collection. Next was more PL in Onyx Black. My image is colored in Copics and sponged with Baja Breeze ink from SU! I have been using this color a lot but it is the shade that suits me most, with the newer papers. The sentiments are from Theresa Momber's stamp set called Very Merry Christmas, and is available through Gina K. Designs. I added Stickles for sparkle and an inked flower from Making Memories.

On a personal note, I would like to tell my friend Patti and her DH, that they are in my thoughts. Here is hoping for good news today. The mailman brought me a gorgeous card and goodie from across the big pond , so I want to thank Sue W. Olga, I received your card yesterday after I posted and it is just beautiful! Thank you all for making me feel so special. This birthday is starting early and I am loving it. Have a great day, everyone!
