Oh my goodness, tomorrow is Christmas!!! In the back of my mind, I knew it was coming, but oh, my goodness, it will be here and gone before I know it! Twice this week I tried to go to the supermarket in the middle of the afternoon, only to give up after cruising the parking lot a few times trying to find parking. So I got up at 7:00 this morning to hit the supermarket - and it was already packed. I already know of one thing I forgot - but I don't think I'm going back! We'll have to do without. And I remembered that I haven't made any holiday food and since I promised to go shopping with my daughter today, I guess that will have to wait until late this afternoon. Whew, it's a good thing that I gave priority to making a couple of cards, right?
Since I missed the Fairy Fun Friday post last week, I squeezed in a mid-week card for the "Use Kraft" challenge. And I'm so glad I did. It felt great to mess around at my craft table again and I remembered how much I love using kraft CS. Here I used The Prairie Fairy's Tree Fairy for this, plus the sentiment from her Holly Fairy set. I really love this vintage holiday fairy set that Roberta came out with this season and have so enjoyed working with these digital images. I also used Grunge Flourish Hearts from Stempelglede with lots of Vintage Photo distress ink. And I used a technique that Tim Holtz used on one of his Christmas tags by dabbing one of the white acrylic Paint Dabbers onto the edges of the tag to look like snow. The snowflakes are from SU's Winter Post set. I embossed a piece of K&Co. chipboard and then painted over it with the white paint dabber. When dry, I sanded the high points and used some VP DI on it.
I think that's about it for the dets on this card. There's still another week to play in the Kraft challenge at Fairy Fun Friday. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas Eve. Keep calm, don't stress - that's my mantra for today. I'll be back tomorrow with my card for Our Creative Corner.
