Three little Christmas Trees

 Good afternoon peeps.  What a windy cold day we are having here in Muskoka.  I had physio today for my foot.  First time since I was done work.  We were hoping that being off my feet a little more it would improve.  But that's not the case.  It's better, but not totally, so we're trying an aggressive approach again.  Going every week.  After two years of pain, something has to work. 

I have two cards to post today, because I couldn't get the use of the computer yesterday.  Seems it was a Star Wars day for both daughter and hubbie. 

This is a simple card.  Stamped and them I restamped a few times onto decorative paper. Cutting out the trees.  Also adding some stickles onto them, and some for the snow hills.

Creative Knockouts - #11 Sparkle

Second up is this cute little gingerbread man, with his sassy saying from Graphicats.  I love monochromatic cards.  This one just pops at you with all the red.  I'm finally getting into the holiday spirit.  I added some perfect pearls mist to give him a bit of a sparkle. And some fabric paint for his icing, and stickles for his buttons.

CSAYL - #42 - Stripes

I have another card for later, it still has to be scanned.  Now off to the craft table for more creating before the family arrives home.

happy creating

dee ;o)
