Blue Ridge Mountains



Good Morning. It's snowing here in south western Virginia. I hate snow! And today I have to go to work because Santa is coming, it's our big Christmas party/activity for our residents. The Lion Club comes and well it's just a big deal! then this afternoon my step daughter is getting married, another big deal, and it's snowing. No big deal don't guess, I do have a 4x4. Oh well, on to my card, this is the card I made for Jennie Harper's sketch challenge over at StampTV. I have learned so much about stamping since I joined StampTV. If you have never been over there please go check them out! I have been playing around with sponging and the other day going to work I just really looked at the mountains around me, I am very blessed to live in such a beautiful part of the world. Anyway, I thought how pretty a card would be like the scene I saw so I gave it a try. Here is what I came up with. I used Blue bliss at the top, followed by Bordering Blue, the Green Galore. I stamped the tree from Branch Out (Stamping Up) and added the 2 little birds. Cut it out using a nestie, then cut the scalloped oval out. Placed them on Bordering Blue card stock, which is on top of Bashful Blue. Stamped Thank You also from Stamping up, added 3 pearls to finish off the card. I am real pleased at how it turned out. Thanks so much for taking time to drop in and have a look. I really do appreciate it and your comments. On another note, I have been sitting on a secret and think I might tell it in the next day or two so you won't want to miss that. So check back in between now and Monday morning. Until then, Happy Stamping!!
