    I hardly ever receive mail from Finland with a real postage stamp. Companies use just stamped signs.

    BL: Trees in Snow #4 (#11)
    BR: Wreath (#12)
    I borrowed a book this week, from the library, about inchies from fabric. Some inspiring ideas.

    Merry Christmas to All

    I just got on now. What a nice surprise to get a personal invitation. And now scrolling down and there is art to be traded and and I haven't even thought about what to start making. I had bought these watercolor pen for Christmas. We were to buy something you would like. S o I bought them thinking nobody will want them. I showed them to my daughter and she thought they were nice, so the asked her daughter what she thought about watercolor pens and she just pulled up her nose. She doesn't know that's what I bought to for the exchange gift. Well we play a game and of Stealing, passing left or right or keeping and opening. Well won't you know once my gift was opened and my Granddaughter saw them she wanted them in the end she got them so now I have to order some again for myself. It was nice thinking that no one would want them.

    So here are the ATC'S I made using leftover scrapbook paper and stickers. The golden yellow one is not available for trade. The ATC that says "Peace to All/Wishes" has been traded along with the very last ATC that has a quote about the holly bough. Thanks! 20201227_033900~2.jpg

    I started off with some snowflake inches. Unfortunately it's quite dark here, so the pictures aren't very good...

    Attachment 219975 set 1 - this is actually a light turquoise with silver snowflakes

    Attachment 219976 set 2

    Attachment 219977 set 3 - this is actually a light cobalt blue with silver snowflakes

    Great start from those who have shown creations in the thread.
    My Muse has been jumping around like a chook with no head or a squirrel overdosed on coffee. I finally have something to offer on Day 1's theme of: Christmas.

    And here are my cards made using leftover wrapping paper (I must admit that I now think about this theme when I am buying wrapping paper in the first place )
    #6 #7 #8 #9 this card is on red mirror card, not the black that it has scanned
    #10

    And now I am off to bed, hoping that my Muse will stay more on track tomorrow. Goodnight all

    jo, I love the Merced River and the snowy trees one! I like how the few brushstrokes you made evoke the objects.

    Love your chunky pages, sniisk!
    Hoping to make some chunky pages to trade this week.

    Made a few cards today: Christmas Eve (Available), Christmas Morning TRADED (both with pictures from an old children's book by Garth Williams) and Snow Fairy TRADED

    I'm happy to see all the pretty art! I had a plan...things went sideways...so I returned to the PreHoliday cards and finished up 2, (I found one done but never posted.)



    Then I returned to the newer ideas and actually got it to work:
