Hope your holiday was a happy and peaceful one! We celebrated quietly with family...the best kind of day!
I am enjoying the time at home and am looking forward to playing with all my new goodies! I would love to do a haul video, but I'm just not set up for it so I'll just tell you that I've got lots of new stamps...Lawn Fawn, Paper Smooches, Stamping Bella, Simon Says, Avery Elle, and Tiddly Inks!! Yeah!!!
One of the things I'm most excited about is my new set of Prismacolor pencils. I've been wanting some for a long time! I'm so inspired by the work of Therese at Lostinpaper and Amy at Prairie Paper and Ink, as well as a multitude of other crafters.
Anyway, Santa left a set under the Christmas tree and here is my first attempt:
I pretty much cased a card by Emily (here) that uses Paper Smooches Giddy Gumdrops set and the partial die-cutting technique that I've been wanting to try.
I am in love with the Prismacolors!! I've got to learn to be bolder with my shading techniques but I'm happy with the results nonetheless! Looking forward to lots of playing!!
Tomorrow is Christmas Part II at my house. All of my family (cousins by the dozens) are coming! There are lots of new babies to cuddle!
Have a great day!!
