Hang in there...

Hey there! I have a Christmas card to show you today. The sketch is from the Inspired Crafters challenge blog; a bunch of my PTI friends got together and hold weekely challenges. Most are scrapbooking, but there are a few card sketches thrown in as well. The idea is to get ahead on those Christmas cards for next year. The sketch this week was Jen's; check out her blog here.

I don't know about all of you, but I know that I tend to get a bit stressed out over the holidays. I try to do too much in too little time, so I thought the sentiment "Hang in there..." was appropriate.

Changito is colored with pencils/Goo Gone and embellished with a bit of glitter. The ornament is paper pieced and there is a touch of glitter on there as well. I love this Making Memories DP; it's fun and funky!

Image/Sentiment: Stampendous
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and Vintage Cream, SU! Basic Black and Cranberry Crisp, Making Memories DP "Mistletoe" Collection
Embellies: PTI Vintage Cream Twill, Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter in "Polar Bear", Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter
Extras: Spellbinders Nestabilities, Foam Tape

I used white to stamp the image on and cream for the card base. I never used to mix the two, but I am finding that I like them mixed together. What do you think? Do you ever mix them, or do you go with one or the other?

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope your day is a great one!

This is so cute Angela, perfect to send to someone who is feeling stressed around the holidays. I love that patterned paper, too. I never mixed cream and white before, but your's looks great, I'll have to give it a try.

What a great idea! I love your little monkey and your card. You know, if you do one Christmas card a week, you'll have 52 by Christmas. Now that would make holiday time a lot less stressful!
