I do dislike when the cold months arrive because I never have a chance to take pictures of my cards in natural light. I get some natural light in my office so I do try to take pictures at work. So now we can talk about the other things I dislike about the cold months - but I don't think anyone wants to hear that kind of language. :)
My card tonight is a start on holiday cards - my goal is to make my card, finish the inside and address the envelope all in the same timespan - so then when it comes time to mail cards - I will be ready. this is my first card that has 2 parts of the three step program done.
Caardvarks is having a challenge on their blog. Gee - I am lucky - it fits with my three step program - outside and inside of card. Their beautiful cards were made with Penny Black stamps - for some reason - I have a hard time finding her stamps around here. I even was able to use a Penny Black stamp I already owned - another penguin card. I think most of my cards this year are going to be penguins - might as well have a theme. The paper is from a pad I bought - Prima - very fun papers - a very non traditional colored holiday card. The addition of a couple SRM stickers finished off the card perfectly.
Well I must go and try to do something worthwhile - I tried to get a new Copic marker tonight because the color I need - the pen went dry and the store was out of that color. Maybe Hobby Lobby will have the color - I hope - I found this paper I want to use for cards for Operation Write Home. Oldie moldie paper.
Everyone have a wonderful evening.

Love this festive card and love how your inside almost mirrors the outside. This card is going to make someone really happy. :)
