Windy Pine: Day 11 of the S&S 12 Days of Christmas

How can it be so late on the month already?! It’s already Day 11 of Smeared & Smudge's 12 Days of Christmas.  I cannot believe it! I had such aspirations! Such dreams of what I could create! I got some of the things done…but very few. Well, there’s always next year I guess! But enough of this bah-humbug attitude! I do have a new card to share with you today. And I utilized a paint chip again.

I chose this chip for the bottom color…it’s called “Windy Pine.” Isn’t that a great name for a color? I mean, can’t ya just smell it???

I picked a different tree from Tattered Angels…from the same set I used on Saturday. Love this set! The sentiment is also a part of it. I embossed the tree in a hunter green, and the “Winter Wishes” in Queen’s Gold. I inked around the edge of my cream colored card base, and that was it. Simple but pretty.

And now I am off! Off to try to wrap presents, finish gifts, make more cards, and to try to just b-r-e-a-t-h-e! Ha! That will probably have to wait until the New Year! Please be sure to stop by all of the Jolly Bloggers, listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
