A couple of bird's eye view shots of Karma. The back of her head looks like it was painted in halves right down the center--black and brown--hehe!
She thinks if I have stopped over her I should be giving her a little scratch...so she's waiting--ROFL!
So--what have I been doing since I last chatted with you?
Stamping! Stamping! Stamping!
Finished all the trees.
Oh--and yesterday I got a package from Iggy!! Oak leaves from a 375 year old oak tree!!
When I opened the package there was this lovely autumn scent.
I found a pretty box to put them in. Thanks soooo much Iggy! Oaks are Leah's Mom's favorite trees. Karma, apparently, loves oak leaves, too, as she wanted to eat them! Hence the search for a box--hehe!
Anyways, next I stamped the holly & berries...
...on the ovals for the inside of the card.
And meanwhile--every time I was waiting for ink to dry...
...I stamped a few of the backs of the latest bookmarks until I finished those up, too.
Last night I stamped the top...
..."happy holidays" in black over the holly...
...and then worked on the "seasons greetings" in black below the holly...
...until I finished!!
Yup! Done with the stamping--TaDa!!
Next I'll start adding the sparkly snow to the trees. Have to lay them out to dry, so I can only do just a few at a time. While they dry I can color in the holly & berries and cut the red ribbons. I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel--hehe! ;)
But today...I am going over to Dagan and Leah's to work on the etsy shop. So--maybe back to cards on Wednesday. My shoulders & back need a little break, anyways. So happy to have gotten this far on the cards, tho. :)
It has been raining pretty steadily for a couple of days and....NO LEAKING!!! They must have finished with the roof over on this end. Hallelujah!!!
They are saying this rain could possibly turn into snow by tomorrow? We'll see. It shouldn't stay on the ground this early in the year, but it just goes to show you how cold it has gotten fast up here. I had just gotten my fall jacket out--hehe!
Well, time for some nice warm lentil curry on this chilly October day. :):)
