These beautiful images and snowman card arrived a few days ago from my Secret Santa. Quite a few of us, about 84 I believe, are participating in a secret santa swap on splitcoaststampers. I received these as a preview of the great items to come. The card is so beautiful with many layers and pretty pinks and blues to go with the green of the typical Christmas colors. I LOVE the untraditional soft subtles added to this card and the snowflake background from the CB embossing folders is perfect as well. (btw, I sell them at my store for anyone interested click on the link on the word snowflake). I can't wait to get coloring some of those High Hopes images as well. I don't know for sure who they are from, as we don't reveal that until our packages are opened on December 13, but I do see a Wilmington, Mass. return address and postal stamp :) I am very excited, because I also received my package today (but have to be a good girl until Dec 13 or Lena and Ms. Audrey Ann will be mad at me).
Next is a card from my dear friend, Chris Sather from Canada!! She has sent out her Christmas cards already in anticipation of arrival before the Christmas season is fully upon us. Great job on this beauty, Chris. Her coloring and shading is terrific on this adorable High Hopes image, don't ya think?! Pretty reds and greens, too!
Thanks, ladies, for starting off my Christmas season with these beautiful handmade gifts!!
