Hello, my friends! I've been a little MIA lately, but like many of us I have been spending time with friends and family, both preparing for and enjoying the holiday season. I have the last of my Christmas cards for this year to share, one that I created with the intent of it being decidedly masculine. It has already been delivered to the recipient, who approved!
With this card I'm playing along with the Merry Monday Tic-Tac-Toe challenge, and I've chosen the column vertically down on the left: Stamping, Die Cut and Red. I'm also playing along with the final Curtain Call challenge, and it's always so sad to see a challenge blog end. My branches aren't pine, but I think I've captured the colors and masculine feel of the inspiration photo.
