Stamp Review Crew: Christmas Pines, CTS#200









The Stamp Review Crew is featuring Christmas Pines today.  The possibilities of that set with its matching diecuts are endless.  I kept mine simple in the spirit of that sweet sentiment.  Recovering from this crazy pneumonia has made me slow down and simplify my life recently.  But on the plus side of it all.....................

1.  On line Christmas shopping has never been easier and the packages are now rolling in daily!  "Free shipping" are my two favorite words!
2.  I have caught up on some wonderful shows......The Crown,Gilmore Girls, Bosch......and all those Christmas specials.
3.  My favorite authors released new books this month.....Lee Child, John Grisham, John Sandford, Janet Evanovich, David Baldacci.
4.  I am wearing out my iPad browsing stamping blogs - amazing talent out there!
5.  I have missed a few gatherings but Emma brings goodies home to me. 

At a birthday party yesterday she couldn't pick just one treat for me so she picked three......and yes I ate them all!



Enjoy the hop I plan to!

If you missed Martha's wonderful work head back there!




Otherwise your next stop is with my amazingly talented friend Mike Funke!  Enjoy!




I used the sketch from Cas(e) this Sketch for my design. Congrats to that talented team on their 200th sketch!

So sorry to hear you are down with pneumonia, but that's when online ordering and catching up on the blogworld and movies is great. Mr. Brown has been delivering to my door almost every day and it is such a stress reliever. Your card is beautiful. I love the font of the sentiment and how you used the boughs and pinecones to make a simple but pretty card. Take care of yourself. Our health is our most important asset.

Gorgeous card, Linda! Fabulous use of the sketch! Love the repeated stamping of the starry image for your background layer and the gorgeous sentiment. Rochelle xo

Cute card! Love the clean design. And I think that three treats will help you recover three times faster...that's my theory and I'm sticking to it. ;)

So sorry you have been sick Linda!! You still pulled off a beautiful cold. I guess you can't keep great talent down ;)

Linda, I love the simplicity of your card. The DSP is perfect and the metallic cord adds such a nice pop!

What a sweet and simple card, Linda. Those are my favorite kind! Love the colors together. Sounds like Emma is doing a good job taking care of you! Feel better soon. I don't feel bad and most of my shopping has been done on-line…so easy!

Fabulous cards--love those pine cones.

Your illness is not affecting the end results of your card-making any - this one is gorgeous! I'm glad there is a silver lining and I have to say, there is no feeling quite like the delivery of parcels!

Heidi Baks said...

Glad you are on the mend! Beautiful grouping of pine cones and boughs! I love the snowflakes in the background.

Jen Mitchell said...

What a fabulous take on the sketch! I love a good pine bough and some pine cones!

Sorry to hear you haven't been feeling well Linda - but it certainly hasn't slowed down your talents. Love your card!!! Kelly x PS, I'm a sucker for 'free shipping' too. I'll buy anything that has those magic words attached!
