Happy New Year!

I really haven't completely lost it.  I know it isn't New Years yet but I just wanted to be sure and get my wishes out to all of you special people.  I hope your Christmas was merry and full of love, joy and peace.  We had a wonderful Christmas.  Christmas Eve was the time for the family to gather, and what a time it was.  So much fun, lots of laughter.  We had one empty spot, our granddaughter in Victoria was not able to come and she really was missed.  Once all the fun and frolic was done everyone went home and on Christmas day there was just us and two daughters and one grandson.  A wonderful day to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior.

Here is a card I made for Teapot Tuesday.  We had to start with a white canvas and paint, chalk, stamp and whatever we could think of.  I am not an artist so I did use one stamp.  This stamp is from DRS Designs and was stamped with versamark and then heat embossed with white embossing powder.  First I masked off the area for the moon and then sponged all over with baja breeze and pacific point.  Used a soft cloth to rub the excess color off the trees.  Diamond stickles is used at the base of the trees and added a picket fence border punch.  Quick and simple.

Stamps:  DRS Designs Trees
Paper:  whisper white cardstock
Ink:  Versamark, baja breeze, pacific point, black
Accessories:  paper mask, heat tool, white embossing powder, sponge, Martha Stewart picket fence border punch
