I had a rough week. Nothing of a grave nature, thank God, but definitely unnerving. My antidote - prayer for the spirit and a little Christmas for the mind. (Yes, I should exercise for the body, but I haven't gotten there yet. LOL!) Inspired by Kristina Werner's "Holiday Card Series 2011," I came up with some Christmas designs of my own.
The first set I made was inspired by Kristina's Day 10 design, in which she pieced a patterned block. I used the same technique to create a flower and enhanced it with a button. For my designs, I decided to use a tag format for the focal point.
The second set I made was inspired by her Day 6 design. She made a pattern for punching and embroidering a tree shape on card stock. I liked it so much, that I incorporated it into my own designs.
Finally, I made as set inspired by her Day 25 snowmen design. However, I used a Martha Stewart Snowman punch instead of a stamp. It was fun dressing up the snowmen and playing with different layouts for the cards.
Anyway, I feel much better. Thank you, God, and may next week be better... How was your week?.
