New Rubber from Rubber Romance!

Forgive me if this posts ends up sounding loopy! I have caught a dad-gum head cold from either my daughter or my parents. Who should I blame? LOL .. anyway, I've taken some cold medicine and will hitting the sack very soon.

I have two cards to share with you tonight: The first card I created with a new stamp I purchased from Susana at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. This is from Rubber Romance and I just the love this stamp! My card is very simple, too simple in fact. I made this to give to a friend who I've been missing lately. But since the head cold kicked in full force today, I didn't have alot of MOJO to really embellish. Sometimes I think simple is good. I like how it turned out.

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and colored it with Copic Markers. The DP is Basic Grey and the matting around the image is SU Taken With Teal. I added a simple piece of organza ribbon.

The second card is one of the Christmas cards that I mass produced for my Christmas card list. I really LOVE this Santa stamp! I finally found one on Ebay and took the plunge to purchase it. I stamped it with Gold pigment ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder. The DP is from the My Minds Eye Christmas Glitter pack. LOVE this paper!!

Hope everyone is doing well and making progress in their Holiday shopping. Don't even ask if I've started yet! My tree still isn't up.. but come heck or high water it will be this weekend.

Have a great evening! Thanks for coming by and for all your sweet comments you leave me!
