Step Christmas Card.....

Good morning fellow bloggers!  Yes, it is 12:04 and I'm still up.  Sometimes it just isn't in the cards to rest when you are supposed to....but then who dictates when we are supposed to anyway.  I sleep these days when I'm sleepy and that isn't much.  Of course I get grumpy...wouldn't you?

It is officially my sister, The Enabler's, birthday today!  Let me be the first to wish her a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!   Yes, I'm still older than you, but that's OK...you can come visit me in the nursing home!

My card this morning is a center step card all decorated up for Christmas!  The image is a Hanglar image and I just love this one!  I wish we could more readily purchase these in the states!  I water colored it with my distress inks and used a Spellbinders oval to cut it out.  I added some pretty paper and some cheese cloth behind the image.  Braid down the sides and I made the poinsettia out of some pretty paper and covered it in glitter.  The branches are a punch and I took stamen purchased from the bridal section and colored them gold with a gold leaf pen.  The snowflake is a Martha Stewart punch and I added glitter to that too.  I'm just a glitter kind of girl!

Well that is about it for me this morning.  What are your plans for the day?  Me?......I'll probably be napping!
So go forward and have a good day and remember to "Breathe"!

Wow so pretty. Love all the dimensions here, the little Hanglar's are always adorable. Hope you find some energy and get a good nap in. I'm drinking some white chocolate cocoa to get me warmed up. Yummy.

This is also incredible. I LOVE these stamps too and wish I could get them in the states also. I just printed out the directions to create a side step card. Great card.

This card is just gorgeous. The idea with the stamens is great - one to keep in mind next time I am at the craft store.
