Bless Your Little Hearth

If you've visited my blog for any length of time, you know it's no secret that I am in love with the Stampendous Bees and Changito stamps. :) They are just TOO cute! When Michelle at Stamper's Dream got these adorable Christmas Changito stamps in the store, I just could not resist! My layout and colors were inspired by the Changito image. . .Santa Claus. I thought about adding some white at the bottom of the card, but nothing looked right. You get the picture, though. . .right? Michelle also sent me some Neenah Solar White cardstock to try out with my Copic markers. I am happy to report that it works extremely well with Copic markers. I didn't have any problem at all with the colors bleeding.

On a personal note, please keep my sister-in-law Linda in your thoughts and prayers today as she is having a mastectomy. I know it would brighten her spirits to know that there are so many people thinking about and praying for her. THANK YOU! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Changito Hearth (Stampendous); Paper- Solar White 80lb (Neenah), Basic Black, Red Riding Hood (SU), gold (DCWV); Ink- Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko); Accessories- brads (Making Memories), Copic markers, paper piercer; Finished card measures 4.25" square

Best wishes to your sister-in-law Linda - and all those who love her. My sister had bilateral mastectomies last September & has completed chemo & radiation. Quite a year! so know somewhat what you're going through. Thoughts continue to be with Linda as she travels her personal challenge journey.
