Have you ever submitted a card to a publication? I did for the first time this spring and this was the card. Sadly, it wasn’t accepted, but I thought you all might like it! It uses an untraditional stamp set for a Christmas Card.
I stamped the pine using a stamp from the Autumn Days Stamp Set 2 – 3 times between each inking. I then stamped the bird cage and bird from the Aviary Stamp Set, cut it out, popped it up with dimensionals, and topped with a bow to make it look like it is hanging from a tree.
I think that’s about all for today! I’m super sleepy today…if you remember I had pneumonia in May and since then I’m on my FIFTH cold. Good grief! I’m wondering if my eating habits are the cause. I eat a fairly healthy diet, but about 10 years ago I found out I am sensitive to caffeine, aspertame and dairy. I cut them out of my diet for a while, but have been back to eating those things again. Maybe consuming those things are causing issues with my immune system?
So today is day #2 of no coffee, soda or milk. I’m blaming my tired-ness on that! Anyone else have food issues?
