Another Christmas kit completed...

I made up four Christmas card kits to take to my friend Susan's a couple weeks ago and I'm finally completing them with this one.  This is a Memory Box stamp and die that I've had for five years or so and have made before using my Copics.  THIS time I colored in with my new Zig Clean Color Brushes.  I really enjoy using my Zig's but I still need practice to not leave a water line.  I made six of these and then accidently destroyed one by adding White Wink of Stella to the blossom.  Now, don't laugh... I didn't know it would turn it white.  I SAID DON'T LAUGH!!  Ok, you can laugh, I'm an idiot... :)

Christmas is just seven weeks away... what?!!

This is the last month of my personal challenge to do five Christmas cards a month, as NEXT month, they all need to be on their merry way (see what I did there?  "merry way"... geesh, I crack myself up!)  Anyway, with just seven more Fridays until Christmas, this month will be spent getting our personal cards done.  I put these ten together today from a kit I had prepared to take to a friends house a couple weekends ago... yay!

Using my MISTI, I had stamped the Dasher and the Medallion stamp (both by Stampin' Up) on all ten middle pieces at once.  I embossed, then distressed the under panel and added red twine which can be found in my Etsy shop HERE.  If this IS our personal card, I'll need to make another twenty more... I better get crackin' :)

It's as lovely as a tree... it's Autumn!

I wasn't so sure about this but boy, has it grown on me!  I absolutely LOVE it...
Using my MISTI, I was able to stamp two different stamps from the Stampin' Up "Sheltering Tree" set in several colors to achieve the look of a real tree in Autumn.  The colors of Autumn are so warm and inviting.  And on this 4th day of November, where the temperature here in New Jersey will reach an uncanny 72°, let's all celebrate before we start complaining again... LOL
