Meet Me Under the Mistletoe

Couldn't have a more perfect image for a special Christmas card for my better half lol.

Lisa asked her Facebook Group, Bloobel Stamps - Digital Stamps Create and Share, for ideas for images and this was my idea.  I was thinking ahead to Christmas (ya, really... and this was back in September lol) and had this picture in my head of what I thought I might like to do for hubby.  The second I saw Lisa's rendition, I knew I had to have it.

It's been coloured up since October and I've been busy with other commitments and just didn't know what kind of card I wanted to create with it.  And then... it took me 2-3 days to create.  I'd have an idea, then dismiss it.  I'd have a layout in mind.  Didn't like.  A colour palette... nyah.  And so on. 

This is a vertical step card.  Coloured with Copics, papers and cardstock are Stampin' Up, dies from various companies.  I created the sentiment in Word.

Hope you like it.

Merry Christmas to all of you!

Happy Birthday to a Special Lady

Birthdays are fun.  Colouring and creating cards for birthdays is fun.  Creating a special card for a special lady on a MILESTONE birthday... priceless :-).

So, the card has now been received and I can share.

Happy Birthday RHEA!

And where would I turn for a special image for the card?  Bloobel Stamps of course.  The second I saw the "It's Behind You" (scared man), I KNEW what I was going to use it for.  This special birthday.
