Winter Wishes

With 2 full and busy days yesterday and today...I didn't get to stamp anything until this evening. Today I went with a friend to a HUGE Christmas Craft Classic show in Richmond at the Raceway Complex. We went with a city parks and recreation group - so nice not to have to worry about driving or parking...just get dropped off at the front door and then shop til you drop! And drop is what I felt like doing when I got home...thanks to having a cold, cough, sore throat and all that not so good stuff! I found several pieces of unique jewelry and a few other goodies...great fun! Back to stamping...
I made this card for 2 challenges:
ODBDSLC36 - to use gold or silver cording or hemp or string
SFYTT - Jen Del Muro's sketch
I inked up a new Verve image and colored it with Copics (BG15, BG18, R37). I pierced a row of holes at the top of the card and threaded baker's twine through it. This will be a flat, easily mailable Christmas card...check off another one for the stash!
STAMPS: Glad Tidings (Verve)
PAPER: Jovial DP (BasicGrey), Vintage Cream (PTI)
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black
ACCESSORIES: CB, Nesties, Tim Holtz Ornate border die, Baker's twine, Ribbon
