Burning the midnight oil…

Spent a few more hours after dinner last night with hubby working on Christmas cards.  I love that he likes to contribute!  🙂  This one came out nice and is one of my favorites but I still have to mount it onto a card base.  I’m not a fan of mass producing cards that are all the same, so you can understand why it is taking us so long to come up with 50 cards.  Thirty three down, 17 to go!

 

Oh Christmas Tree

One of my most favorite memories of the holiday season as a child was going out each year to tromp through the Christmas tree farm and cut down our tree.  I can’t remember the name of the tree farm any longer, but the owners used to give everyone in the car a homemade popcorn ball on your way out after you paid.  We thought it was such a treat!  Not sure why…but man, we loved those popcorn balls.  This was a fun one to paint…and brought back some really great memories.

Stamp set by honeybee stamps and I used a combination of water color pencils and a really cheap set of water color paints from the craft store.  (and no, I don’t get paid to say that!  I freely acknowledge/promote the products I use in my everyday life). 🙂
