Shiny Holidays Card

Wow! It's only six days until Christmas. I'm happy to report that we did go shopping and bought a few presents yesterday, but I'm far from done. It seems with each passing year I'm less enthused about shopping. My hubby is lucky if I go to the grocery store. Now... when it comes to shopping for stamps online there seems to be no problem. If only my family wanted stamps, I could handle that.

Last month I started a part-time seasonal manager position at Yankee Candle. I made two of this Shiny Holidays Card for the Store Manager and District Manager. I thought the candle image by Unity Stamps was perfect for the recipients. Copic markers were used to color the image. Only the green patterned paper is from a Christmas collection (Christmas Emporium by Graphic 45) the others are scraps from my scrap bin. Three gold sequins add some sparkle and that's it. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

This Shiny Holidays Card is entered into the following challenges:

  6. We love Yankee Candles at our house (especially the scents that are out for Christmas!) This is a beautiful card, and a perfect one to display in such a store too! I was chuckling about your comments on shopping - I'm in the same boat. We did none...kids get gift cards - or this year because of the stuff going on, just a check. We'll celebrate when health issues improve. Also the buying stamps online comment, made me grin real big. I feel the same way. Sad to say, DD has no interest in my hobby! TFS, Hugs & Merry Christmas too!
