Love and Christmas

So yesterday's card with the sentiment stamped too high up was just not acceptable.  The more I thought about it the more I disliked it.  So it was either fix it or toss it.  I chose fix it.  :-)

So here is the messed up card:

That sentiment was driving me crazy.  So I made a few modifications and came up with this card:

I cut out the main part of the image with a circle punch.  I used the same ladybug background from Doodlebug called Love Bugs.  I cut mats out of black and red.  I stamped the Fun Stampers Journey sentiment, put it all together and came up with this card.

This is the same image, but colored with different colors.

I used more paper from Doodlebug.  The card base is from Fun Stampers Journey.

Now finally - here is this week's Christmas Card:

I'm really pleased with the way this card turned out.  I colored the image months ago.  Since it is an amaryllis it screamed Christmas.  I matted it and put it on a piece of paper from my favorite Christmas stack last year:

Well that is it for this week.  I hope you got some inspiration from this week's projects.

Tune in next week for the theme 'Anything Goes'.

Thank you for stopping by the blog.  Have a great day and where ever you are - be there.


Romans 13:10  Love does no harm to a neighbor.  Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.


  1. Lovely cards. I particularly like the Amaryllis one, as my mum loved them.

    Hope you have a nice relaxing weekend. Sue

  2. Very nice cards! Love the variety of the hugs and kisses's always helpful and appreciated to see a creative process and you did just that by demonstrating the different ways to basically use the same stamp, etc...thank you!
    Have a great day!
