- PBlack Transparent Silent Night stamp, inked with Versamark, embossed with Ranger Queen's Gold. Very simple, and it _does_ have a few stars! This was the last attempt at making the challenge card.
- Versamarked the stamp, Queen's Gold embossing over a navy c/s snippet which was to be the focal point of a card. However, it didn't look 'right'...so cut out the elements, applied to some old stars on blue dp. Used an Avery Elle curved die for snow hills, applied Stickles and then some Sparkle n Sprinkle Twinkling Clouds for the snow. Stickles applied to the angel and large star. Again, not happy with the look.
There were a few other attempts, with the ones I've shared being the best of the lot. I think I'll leave off trying to make any cards for a few days (oh well, I do have one started for Rudolph Day that needs to be finished), and just do some cleaning. You can't mess up too much if you're just cleaning stamps, putting schtuff away, right????
Anyway, thanks for all the encouraging words about DH. Right now it's good days & bad days..sometimes some of both in the same day. He sees the gastrologist tomorrow afternoon, but since the doctor is tied up in surgery all week, we will be seeing the Physician's Assistant. We've seen him before, and like him - but this time I'd be happier if we saw the doctor. However, it can't be helped, so we'll take the one who's available just now.
Do please check out all the inspiring cards that my Christmas Club teammates have shared for Mrs. A's Stars Challenge. Their links are shown in the side bar, and I KNOW you will see some fantastic cards! Thanks for popping by. Big Hugs.
