One batch done


Mother's holiday cards are finished!  Yippee!  I really enjoyed making these and I was equally glad to get them wrapped up and handed over to my Mother yesterday.  I posted a similiar card as this a few weeks ago.  The background is from Jennifer McGuire's Holiday Thinking Inking class at http://www.twopeasinabucket.com/.   I believe this was week 3 or 4 of her videos.  All are still available.  Currently we are on the last week of the class.

For the foreground I stamped and embossed the snowflakes in silver and then added some Stickles also in silver for the centers. 

When I showed Mother the first one, she exclaimed, "where did you get that button?"  It's a Build-a-Brad from stamping up.  I'm loving these more and more because they are very easy to make and you always get a matching brad since you stamp your own center.

Now on to my holiday cards.  I've made a lot of them in ones and twos for challenges and stuff.  Now is time finish up because it will soon be time to mail them!

Hope you are having a great holiday weekend!
