Filling Holiday Orders

     Everyone seems to be needing a little of this and that to add to their holiday list.  I was given a request by 2 co-workers, for Mother cards.  I was finally able to come up with a design, so I will be using it for both.  I love a good easel card!  Since I worked real hard at using up all of my white pieces, I would like to take this over to Pixie's Snippets Playground # 151. 

     My base is Neenah white, and the red sparkle stripe is very thick, and is from American Crafts.  The stamps are from Flourishes Christmas Candles SS172.  The dies are Spellbinders scalloped oval, and Sweet n Sassy's mother die.  Sponging was done with SU! real red, and the coloring was done with Copic markers.  Embellishments are a paper doily, red gems, and touches of Stickles.

I would also like to enter this at the:
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge-  Christmas

     Thanks for stopping by, and if you are in the grips of this Polar Vortex, stay safe and warm.

Your co-workers will be delighted with these cards, I'm sure, as will their Mothers. Just lovely, Mary Anne. The doily gives it such a delicate feel. Enjoy the day even though it is cold outside.
