Christmas Card

Hi Everyone,  My computer crashed a while ago which is one of the reasons why I've been MIA.  The other reason was because I was feverishly making cards for the Caring Hearts Drive ( got a very late start) and felt it more  important to make them than to post them.  This is an experimental posting.  I am now on windows 10 and I am not very computer literate so this is taking me some time to figure out what I'm doing and how to do things.    I did a production run of this card  and they are already on there way  and I'm trying my first run with this computer. 

I could not get a good picture of it because I used Shimmer Spritz on the front and it doesn't photograph well at all, at least not for me.  We all know photography is not my thing.    The stamps are very old ones.  The holly is from Outlines and I honestly don't know who made the sentiment stamp because I removed it from the wooden base and forgot to mark it.  I colored the sentiment stamp with SU! markers before stamping and I colored the holly with Copics.   I would like to wish  all of you who celebrate Thanksgiving a very Happy, Healthy one.  Thanks so much for popping in to say hello.

Black and Silver Christmas Card

I need to make Thanksgiving cards but in going through my stash I found this beautiful pattern paper (it is more like cloth) and I immediately knew I had to jump ahead to Christmas for a minute.  I have a friend that only like black, brown, silver and gold colors so as soon as I came across this paper I went ahead and made her Christmas card.    It is unconventional, I know, but she will love it just because of the colors, at least I hope so.
I used SU! silver paper to back up the IO die cut sentiment along with my corner punch and I was done.   Now that I'm looking at it here I am wondering if I should add some Shimmer Spritz to the sentiment panel.  What do you all think?  I would appreciate any suggestions.  That's all I have for today.  Time to get to making Thanksgiving Day cards. Not too much time to waste.  Wishing you all a great day.
