Seasons Greetings

Good Monday Morning All:
Right off the bat let me apologize for this very dark picture. I don't know what my problem is today, but I was having a very hard time trying to showcase the embossed stripes on this card and they only way they would show at all was by keeping it on the darker side. Anway, today's post is of a holiday card I am making for my daughter and her partner to give to their clinets. They started a small business last year and I try to help by suppling cards and hand made gifts for them to give out during the holidays. I found it funny last year that a lot of their clients had never even seen a hand made card or gift before. I guess when you do this all the time, you automatically assume everyone knows about them. Everything I used on this card is from Stampin Up with the exception of the embossing folder, which is by Sizzix. The tree is from the set titled Lovely As A Tree, which in my opinion is the best set they have made, so versitle. The greeting is a very old retired set from 2002 titled Seasons Greetings. I added blue dots and glitter to the tree to make it pop. I stamped the sentiment prior to running it through the Big Shot with the embossing folder. That's it for me today. I'm off to the yard again seeing as how I didn't get out there for too long yesterday. I had coupons for JoAnns and Michaels so I spent most of the day shopping instead. Much more fun that yard work. Now I have to find time today to use my new Nestabilities and little doo-dads that I purchased. It's funny how a whole day can rush right buy when you are shopping for craft items. I wish you all a great day and thank you for stopping by.
See you tomorrow.
