This is my take on the current Mojo Monday Sketch. http://mojomonday.blogspot.com/2010/06/mojo-monday-144.html I have been struggling with a bit of stress at work, and I have not felt terribly creative lately. One thing that always lifts my spirits, is Christmas. I decided to get a start on my Christmas cards. It is my favorite time of year, and I wanted to use my new stamps from PTI. They are a gift from my Flickr friend, Tina. It is such an adorable set.
The background patterned papers are from My Minds Eye, and the others are from my scraps. The tree and the sentiment are from the PTI stamp set, Believe. The tree was stamped with Versafine, Smokey Gray. It is a new favorite of mine. It has the detail of black but not so dark. The sentiment was stamped with Versafine, Toffee. The birdie is from another of my favorite Christmas stamps from Hero Arts, Holiday Birds. It was also stamped in Toffee. The ribbon is from Michael's and the pearls are from Recollections. I used so many for this card that I need to buy some more. I love pearls on cards!
