Let the Holidays Begin!

Happy Thanksgiving if you celebrate it.  Thanksgiving seems like a U.S. holiday but really we all need a day (or 365 of them) to really dwell on all our blessings. 

It is Thanksgiving, but I have a Christmas Card to share.  It is for the DRS Designs "Let the Holidays Begin" challenge which involves any type of Fall or Winter Holiday.  I chose Christmas because I really wanted to use these new Christmas Village stamps (all are new to me but a few are new to the DRS Designs store).

I used these stamps:

Christmas Village Toy Shop (new)
Christmas Village Town Sign (new)
Christmas Village Four in One
Christmas Village Clock (new)
Christmas Especially to You Greeting (new)

I did the sky with TH Distress Ink and my snow is a combination of dried up Snow Tex and White Acrylic Paint flicked on with a paint brush.

My kitchen counter has mail and some Injectable Jalapeno Butter for my husband's concoction he makes to inject his fried turkeys (he will do two today - yummo), but later it will have a crock pot full of macaroni and cheese and one full of broccoli casserole.  I can't wait to get back

Hope you have a wonderful day!  Many hugz!

  5. Nancy, awesome card! How did you do your snow effects using "dried up" Snow Tex and white acrylic paint? Can you be specific on how to dry the Snow Tex and mixing it with white paint to flick on your background. Thanks -- Fran
