My First Christmas Project This Year.....

Good Friday morning all and I'm so glad you have stopped by to visit!  I have been seeing some gorgeous Christmas cards online lately and was beginning to feel a little pressure to start my projects for upcoming holidays!

In the past, I have made these for family and friends and decided my Christmas tree needed one of these hanging between the boughs as well.  They can also be used as a tag to go on a pretty gift or slip it down into a gift bag.  It is made using watercolor paper, stamping the image with embossing powder and then coloring the image with Ranger Distress Inks.  I went around the outside edge with a gold leafing pen and tied a big pink silk ribbon at the top.  I will be making more of these for sure. These pretty stamps are a mystery to me as I purchased them long ago and didn't label them.  I've had them so long they are yellowing.

We are expecting strong storms today ahead of a cold front and weekend temps are to drop into the 30's at night and 60's for highs during the day.  Fall is definitely almost here.  I love this kind of weather...minus the storms of course.  Hope you have a good day and that you have a great weekend planned!
