Deer Kisses


My dear husband and I were married three days before Christmas quite a few years ago. Such a busy time for people, yet we still had the pleasure to share the day and evening so many loved ones and friends. It was beautiful...there was a light snowfall during the day, the weather was crisp but not the kind that takes your breath away. I kept warm in my dress that my mother made and the shawl my grandmother made and of course, my husband's tuxedo jacket too!


The new December Card Kit from Artful Delight is phenomenal! There is a mix of Christmas and Winter elements...you can check out the contents here. I have a tutorial up on the Artful Delight Blog that showcases multiple uses of a die cut included in the kit, this one right here (varies per kit):


I made the above card with a technique I'm showcasing in the tutorial and then happened to make another card too!


Please stop on over to Artful Delight and while you are there, check out the sketch challenge as well!

I'm entering my card into the Young Crafters Unite Challenge! Really getting into making holiday cards now, so thanks for the inspiration!
