Red & Green!!

Hello & Happy Sunday everyone! Oopsie & sorry, but didn't have the energy to post yesterday. I usually type my blog posts up the night before, which would have been Friday night but I was soooo exhausted from taking the kids to the movies that I ran out of steam. My daughter loved the "Twilight" movie with her 9 buddies & countless other teens streaming into the theater (good thing I bought the tix early) and "Bolt" was really cute & funny (the hamster steals the show)! Then yesterday was my hubby's 41st birthday so I had to do his bidding all day---LOL--not really, but he got to spend time at the Hobby Shop & we went out to dinner!(Happy Birthday Honey, you're gettin' old, hee hee)

So I'm going with a red & green Christmas scheme for ya today since I'm busy today putting up 2 of my 8 Christmas trees & some other decorations--my goal is to be finished by next Sunday,lol! My first card uses 2 of the new Holiday Magnolia stamps that I had to put together--I think they make the cutest Mrs. Claus & Santa I evah' seen, dontcha' think? They're colored with Copics (of course) & the dp is from Daisy D's, lovee the plaid! There's stickles on his buckles, lantern & fur trim and Santa's beard & Mrs. Claus' hair has white opal liquid pearls on it--I tried to do it justice in the picture, but it is so dimensional & shiny, just fabby! Ya likee?

Second card uses this wonderful candy stamp from The Stampin' Place called "Christmas Candies & Dish". I used the SCS sketch #202 for the layout and the dp is from Basic Grey & cs is Bazzill Bling. I colored it with Copics and added stickles to the wrappers. Just a fun & sweet Christmas card!

Remember if you love Karen Lockhart Stamps, join our group "Fans of Karen Lockhart" over on Paper Craft Planet and enter for the wonderful webcandy (until Friday) put together by Susana! And remember to upload your Lockhart cards with the keyword "FKLDEC" so we can pick a winner for the group site (details on group page)!
