Picking up...

...where I left off last year. I have quite a few Christmas cards completed, but I really need to get "into gear", so that I can get my cards ready to go postal. To 'kick it up' I am using some images that I stamped last year, and didn't get to on time to send out. Some were already colored, some were not. Both of these images, were already colored. For a quick fix, I grabbed some of my A Muse 4 bar note cards, and made these up.

Stamps: North Pole (Gina K. Designs)
Card Stock: Vintage Blue Note Cards (A Muse), Neenah Solar White
Ink: Adirondack Black, Copic Sketch markers, Clear Spica glitter pen
Accessories: paper piercer, Spring Rain Top Notch Twill Tape (PTI), Snowflake button (WalMart)

Stamps: Holiday House (Lockhart Stamp Company), Holiday Lane (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Card Stock: Kitchen Yellow 4 Bar Note Card (A Muse)
Ink: Adirondack Black, Copic Sketch markers, Clear Spica pen
Accessories: heidi swapp snowflake ghost shape, Bitty Brad (CTMH), A Muse sheer ribbon
Stamps

I hope you've enjoyed todays' "quickie card" samplings! Thanks for visiting!!
