I decided to make more Christmas cards this morning and got sidetracked. This happens often! lol I ended up playing with some of T!m Holtz grungeboard. Tried coloring it with a little Fired Brick Distress Ink, smeared that around a bit, then smeared some of the Adriondack Willow and Aqua Dabbers on it. It may not be dry YET, but I did hit it with cotton, drug some of the dabbers off & used the heat gun.

I used a Pc of the 36 guage copper I had left from another project. It had been run thru the Cuttlebug with a neat folder, then held in the burner of my kitchen range until it started turning colors I liked. The edges hammered so they will be smooth.

I decided I needed a good sized flower , so from my stash of precut dictionary and paperback books flowers, put something together. I edged front & back with Distressed ink Vintage Photo, sprayed it with water and scrunched it up. The mister I was looking for is on my desk, never to be seen again, so used a tiny bit of one with blue tint.

The little pc of DP at the bottom is a small section torn from the Lost & FOund paper from T!m Hotlz. The brad in the flower is from my stash, and is the letter g.

Now, how was that for getting a start on my Christmas cards? ha ha I hate to rush into things!

As always, I thank you for taking the time to stop by and visit, and I hope you will leave a message.
Hugs, Pat
