Christmas Cheer

One of my favorite things about Christmas is seeing lights on the tree and throughout town. Last year, we discovered a couple of houses nearby with a lightshow set to music on a local radio station. So Much Fun! I can’t wait to see them again! In the meantime, how about a cute little Christmas card trimmed with some lights of it’s own?

Magnolia memory

There are some images and scents that bring wonderful memories to mind. For me, the sight of magnolia blossoms makes me think of a walk I took with my dad around the neighborhood once. The blossoms were freshly opened and their soft scent wafted by every so often. Truly a moment to tuck in my heart for safe keeping.

I stamped them with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and added just a little bit of color with Copics.  Once fussy cut, I layered them directly onto a die-cut panel stamped with a scripty image from Stampin’ Up!. It’s my hope the script will help ground them without distracting in any way. Enjoy!
