Yes, its time to begin

Yes, it's time to begin my Christmas cards. I make over 100 unique cards and like to start early making a few at a time. My friends and family expect a "Gerri card" and now I can't possibly buy any!  LOL. Today's Design team card  for 100 Proof Press is a bit crazy, but still has my trademark bling, glitter and vintage image.

The stamp used for the sign language "Merry Christmas" letters is One Hand Signing  #5685  from 100 Proof Press. It is very versatile since you can spell any word. I stamped and cut out each letter and dotted them with green walnut ink. The vintage image is from Retro Cafe Art  on the cute Christmas collage sheet called Christmas Cuties 2. This is layered on two holiday papers. Some some big red and green buttons, candy cane twine, rhinestones and Stickles  were added for  dimension.

Hope you will get to start a new project this week.
yours truly, gerri
