Happy Friday everyone! Today is the release of two new fantastic SCACD Stamp sets by:
2 "Just Because" stamps- Carolyn's Bonsai and The Topiary
You will have the option to purchase the stamps individually or as complete sets. The sets include bonus accessory stamps and are of course offered at a discounted price.
I am show casing "Regency" from the Reflection Yesteryear Set! I love her face with the look of wonder and reflection of past memories. As soon as I saw her I knew this was going to be my mother and father's Christmas Card. My parents live in Arizona and my children live in Florida, Nevada and Pennsylvania. I so miss the family living in one area and celebrating the holidays together. When I was working, I flew my family here for five days to celebrate Thanksgiving. It was awesome for about 48 hours!! But when you put 2 great grandparents, five children and their spouses, 6 grandchilren under the age of 4 and two were under the age of 3 months (4 grandchildren were not born yet) and my hubby and I in a single home .... Let's just say on the fifth day I was counting the trips to the airport down! 2 gone 18 more to go!! LMBO! Seriously though I love being around family!
The background is a Christmas Card Topper made by Flower-soft. I purchased a pack of 6 two years ago and when they arrived I thought "what was I thinking" they just were not what I was expecting. This was before my Copic days! But it made the perfect background for what I was trying to accomplish today!
The song "Ill be home for Christmas" makes me cry every single time I hear it. I mean every single time!! My daughter, Amy knows it too! While she was in college she drove 10 hours straight, in a snow storm, because she found a musical Christmas snow globe with a house inside of it that plays "I'll be home for Christmas". She wanted to see me get all emotional over it! No lie, she wanted to see me get all teary eye!!
Copics: Skin: E21, E00, E000, Hair: E59, E55, E53, E50, YR 23. Red: R89, R37, R35, R32. Green: YG97, YG95,YG93.
I hope you enjoy my card as much as I had fun making it!
