It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

It won't be too much longer, and I've still got a lot of cards to make. I like to make them all different, but this year there may have to be some duplicates.

So I guess you can see I haven't put away my sewing machine from the card I posted Tuesday. That dang this is heavy though! I keep meaning to get one of those little ones. Anyway, I got a little crazy with the glitter too =). On this one I painted Elmer's glue using a paint brush on the snow, the snowmen and a little on the tree.
-Stamps-Wishing you Cheer, PTI Take a Bough
-Paper-Real Red, Soft Sky, and Whisper White
-Ink-Soft Sky and Real Red
-Accessories-Soft Sky reinker and Blender pen, Glue Dots, sewing machine and white thread, Elmer's Glue, paint brush, Martha Stewart glitter: Crystal Coarse, Crystal Fine and Carrara Marble.

Yeah, so this one is pretty overdone. My plan was to put the stitching where you see it closest to the outside. Just one go around, not two. I accidentally sewed the Real Red to the Old Olive, which just looked really funny to me, so I decided to go ahead and sew that piece to the base, even though I knew it would probably come out overdone.
