Merry and Bright Kristina Inspiration #21


Running late, back with more details after I go walking with dh and Nick the dog!

Edited: Okay, I'm back. I almost forgot about Kristina's Inspiration Challenge and I took a nap (sleeping 5 hours a night during the week isn't working out so great for me!). When I woke up and checked the deadline was 7 pm MDT, that left me about 30 minutes to make the card, take and edit the photo, and post it. Yikes! I got it posted on her site at 6:59, schwooo! That was close.

I threw this together very quickly. I think I may go try another one or two. hee! hee! I was wishing I had a Pacific Point button, but now I'm thinking maybe if I had just colored part of the one tree Pacific Point. The button is covering a big blob of green ink where I colored too sloppily. I was trying to color fast and messy and more artsy like Brent Steele does at Convention, but it never really works for me. I like things neat and tidy and inside the lines.

Thanks for stopping by and have a super duper night! It's almost Friday and the weekend!

Have you stamped something today?
