Christmas treat

SO.....my camera is shot. I had to dig out my old camera because I *have* to be able to take pictures & I just canNOT buy a new camera right now. I will go to the mall next month & ask Santa for a new one, but for now my old one will have to do. I have no idea what the pictures will look like.....so bear with me!! Unfortunately, I lost the cord thingy for this camera, so I have to take my card out & stick it in my laptop to get the pictures onto my computer. Not a problem EXCEPT I use a tripod, so I have to take that bottom thing off each time. Then after putting the card back in the camera, I have to put the bottom thing back ON....what a pain!! I know, I should be thankful I at least *have* a spare camera to complain about, lol!




So here's the card I finished the other day, that I couldn't post yesterday!! The image is from High Hopes & is called Christmas Treat. Don't forget that you can now order High Hopes stamps from 7 Kids College Fund!! You can find this stamp HERE........& you can click HERE to see her whole inventory!! If you don't see something you want, just email her & she will include it with her next order!!! So anyway, I colored the image with Prismas & gamsol, & added glitter to Santa's hat. The papers are SU's Kraft & K&Company Christmas Cheer. I didn't have *anything* to match the Christmas Cheer for matting purposes....52 different shades of red in my file cabinet, & nothing even came close. So I took a piece of SU's Naturals White, & sponged the heck out of it with about 3 different red inks. It's still a bit lighter than I would have liked....I wanted it to be a nice, dark burgundy.....but it worked. I ran the Kraft background piece through the Cuttlebug using my Snowflake folder.....used my Martha Stewart Lattice border punch for the burgundy piece....& added a sheer poinsetta to the corner of the image. In retrospect, I wish I had added glitter to the snowflakes in the background, but I still like how it turned out. Simple, yet festive :)




It is warm here today, but rainy & windy & yucky! I guess it beats the snow that I heard Colorado received over the last few days. I just hope it's nicer for Trick or Treat tomorrow!! Enjoy your weekend, & be safe!! Lots of ghosts & goblins out there tonight & tomorrow!!!

Gorgeous - love the kraft cs - looks really nice. And the dp's look just perfect with it. And I just LOVE how you coloured that cute little image too.
Funny how you can have a pile of different cs but nothing will match just like you want - happens to me too. :-)

Oh man, that's exactly what was wrong with my old camera...$150 later it was fixed, but only for 3 weeks and then I dropped it....

Super cute card Michelle!
