Merry Christmas


Here's a card I made for fun while on our BABES trip to Prior Lake. I CASEd Kim (not sure if she's posted it), who I think was CASing someone else. Kim then CASE'd this card. And so on, and so on...

I used the trees from the PTI Tinsel and Tags Market Kit and half of a sentiment from PTI's Side by Side Sentiments.

All the inks (except the black) belonged to the other ladies on the trip - it was so much fun to be able to try out different things. I came back with a list of items I just have to have, including this pink ink (Ranger Adirondack - do they make that anymore?)

Not sure about the Ranger Inks. Love the sweet little snow at the bottom of the trees Ardyth.

I really love your card, Ardyth!

It is great to see a christmas card in non-traditional colours.

These soft pastell colours are totally my style! Think I'll case it :-)

Oh Ardyth this is a beautiful card! I love the bright colors on this one. I love traditional colors as well but lets face it, it is nice to change things up a bit from time to time! I love that all you ladies were able to get together, it sounds like a fabulous trip with lots of great memories made. I hope you ladies get the chance to continue this get together and can make it an annual thing. I think you guys had way to much fun!!! lol Hugs, Brenda

Brilliant card, my friend. I love as much now (if not more), than I did when I first saw it at the "Lake House." Beautifully CAS with those bright pops of colors really appeals to me. Just a delightful card. Bev

...how in the heck did I miss this pink ink? I love the shade AND I LOVE this card! The bits of black in the sentiment, tree trunks and base REALLY enhance the vibrancy of the inked trees!

What a beautiful card...what I really love is how you used the sentiment, love that Merry Christmas. I finally posted my card today. I really love that your's is square, really makes your trees stand out. And I do have to agree with Bev, just as beautiful on your blog as it was in person.

I love how you made this work with four trees, and not the magical odd number of elements. You are just that good, that breaking design rules results in a BETTER card! The glittery snow is a nice bonus : )

I really love Xmas cards that aren't in the tradtional colours. Those tree's are so soft and pretty, love that stamp. Definitely 'pinning' this one!

Warning - Adirondack is so addicting. Sometimes finicky to stamp with clear stamps but the colors are oh-so-rewarding.
