Christmas post

I love getting stuff in the mail, especially at Christmas time.  I think it's sad that people email greetings now instead of taking the care to send something special to light up someone's day.  And these little friends are so cute...
I used an embossed background postcard pattern, spritzed with gold spray and swished with gold ink and sprinkled with some gold embossing powder.  The image is coloured with Reno pens, teddy's hat has Wink of Stella on the fur.  The image has a gold border made with a pen, then a cut stamp style edge cut with decorative scissors.  Sentiment is gold embossed.

Beautiful card Carol - I too love getting 'snail mail', the more so when it has stamping goodies in it :-)

Oh Carol - this is magnificent! I love the way you made it look like a vintage post card. Just beautiful. I'm sure whomever receives this will have a huge smile of joy. Great work. Thanks for sharing this with us at From The Heart Stamps Stamp of the Month. Can't wait to see what you do in January!
