Not A Christmas Card

All the Christmas cards and stamps and embellishments ran out of here in protest from overuse.  They are exhausted and need a vacay.  Preferably one with eggnog and sleep.
In came blue leaves and gold hearts and sunshine.  They took up residence on this card.

Stamps: Simon Says Summer Garden and Sending Happy Thoughts
Paper:  Neenah Solar White and SU gold foil
Ink:  Fresh Ink Sky Blue and Versamagic Red Rocket
Other:  circle and heart dies

HUSBAND'S COMMENT = Is that what you were doing at 3 am?  (Why yes it was.)


  1. Awesome use of your time! Love the blue and red combo and the little heart of gold!

  2. Oh I LOVE this! The colors are awesome.
    Thanks for the fab holiday card♡

  3. Ah! this looks awesome :) the pop of red is fab!

  4. Beautiful, Joan! I have been stamping @ 3:00am more than I want to say over the last month.

  5. The tiny gold heart is the perfect finishing touch! Have a Merry Christmas~

  6. I'm ready to put the Christmas cards away. Love those pretty blue leaves!

  7. That little gold heart is the perfect touch.

  8. This is wonderful. I was admiring those blue leaves, when it dawned on me that I have that stamp set. Feeling happy right now. What a great idea to spice things up a little with those blue leaves.

  9. I love everything about this! I love that it isn't a Christmas card (I hear you, my Xmas stuff ran off and hid weeks ago)! I love the blue leaves. I love that SPOT of BRIGHT red. Happy indeed! But 3 am? Now I'm tired just reading that.
