It's November, yes, that means we need to definitely start Christmas shopping!!! But it also means it's time for the new Hero Arts Monthly contest, you can find all the details here. This month is a mixture of tags, gift wrapping, colour challenge and/or bling.
I went with the colour challenge for my first attempt and landed up with an untraditional Christmas card.
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black; Aqua Mist (PTI); Antique Linen Distress Ink
Stamps: Hero Arts (CL238; CL462; CL459; CL343)
Other: Clear Embossing powder; PTI Die; MFT Tab Die
A fairly simple card with these softer colours. The trees are all embossed. All the cardstock and die edges are lightly inked with Antique Linen. The cream colour for the challenge is in the circle die on the side where I used Rustic Cream cardstock and the neutral is the white in the sentiment tab. I popped the two trees on the sides with some dimensional tape. My favourite part was discovering that some of the snowflakes in various Hero Arts stamp sets could fit into that die cut!
Running: Well, I managed a 14 mile run yesterday morning. It only got painful from mile 7 onwards. I'll persevere and run the 16 miler race this weekend. The temperatures were in the low 40's F when we started our run, perfect for a great morning run! It's really exhilarating, try it!
And thank you to all of you who visited me during the Cards that Care blog hop! Wow, what a terrific turn out! I think Vera and Jennifer are going to be really successful with this card drive!
Wishing you a fabulous day filled with love and laughter!
