Well, I haven't put away all of my Christmas papers, and stamps yet. I didn't get my Tim 12 days of Christmas tags done before Christmas, and so here it is January 3 rd, 2011 and I am still working on a Christmas project.
The stores have Valentines and St. Patrick Day merchandise out, and today, I couldn't believe it...I saw chocolate Cadbury Easter Eggs for sale in the grocery store. Hopefully, I will feel well enough to finish the rest of my tags this week. I went to the doctors this morning, and I am now on antibiotics.
In my craft room I came across a sheet of wood grained cardstock that I bought many years ago at C T and Nee's stamp store in Raynham. I use to teach classes at that store. I still miss that stores closing.
The store carried an awesome variety of cardstock. I wish I would have bought more of the wood grain cardstock when I had the chance.
When Tim first posted his day 7 tag I was planning on using the wood grained cardstock, but then after Christmas I found Tim's wood grained texture fade embossing folder on sale. I decided to use the folder with the wood grained cardstock with the cardstock. I smooshed a vintage photo ink over the raised areas to accent the raised wood grain. Here is a piece of the cardstock that I have left.
My finished day 7 tag.
