Tried and true

When my mojo goes walking, I can usually create a card with Stampin' Up. Their cards seem to go together easily...Think it is because you can count on everything to fit etc.

The last of my in town cards were mailed today and here is one I haven't shown yet. I really like the way the colours fit together and the way the Stampin Up sentiment fit their word punch perfectly. I quickly grabbed a photo to share with you.
After it was finished, I felt maybe it lacked a little Wow factor...but once I ran the glue pen around the flourish stamp on the red ornament and sprinkled ultra fine glitter over it, I was happy.  It then had enough sparkle!
Here a better shot of the glimmer.

No recipe tonight. Sorry. I have a touch of the flu and I am heading up to snuggle under a warm knitted throw and watch a little TV with my husband.  I have felt off for about a week now but it finally hit me last night and I haven't had much sleep.

I have just been looking through your Christmas card creations and they are stunning! I so struggle with cards. They are just so hard for me. I love the idea of your mother's owl tree!! Get better soon!

I agree, Maureen, the touch of glitter turns your lovely card into a stunning card! It's a good lesson to me to always take a second look and see if my card could use that little extra sumpin' sumpin!

Happy Holidays!! Darnell
