This year I participated once again in my dear friend Chrystal's Holiday tag swap! I wanted to use a color combo that would stand out. I think I succeeded, wouldn't you say? When you come in my home, you can see these colors everywhere. Except for my stamping studio which is a light blue, my favorite color. I would love for you to share with me, what is your favorite color combo? Paula thanks for giving me a hand with those! Paula came to borrow some ink and after finishing her project she helped me with my swap. It was easy to design the first one but the second one, oh my! Sometimes I can add layers like you couldn't believe. It was becoming a little too silly! We loved these so much that we created each one for ourselves!
These are prettier in person, I get to swap with 10 other demonstrators + 1 extra for Chrystal! I have to confess, my mother in law decided to have a little retreat with all her granddaughters, so my girls have been gone all afternoon, for the night and part of tomorrow, I had to do some stamping. It was so fun! I was suppose to do major cleaning in my stamp room but I had so much fun creating different projects instead. How do I get so messy?
Here is a close up for you. I hope you enjoy my Christmas tags! Even if it's September, it's never to early to start your Christmas cards and tags.
I finally learned how to post with my MAC, thank you Jo-Ann for your precious time the other night. I couldn't figure how to paste my watermark. And I love having it there especially when my kids picture is on a page. Good bye PC!
Had a lovely dinner tonight with my husband and some friends, now I just can't sleep so I decided to post and maybe it will make me sleepy!
