Well.... it finally arrived. Yes... the Charlie Brown Christmas Tree... and I can't be more excited about it. Tomorrow night I'm picking up a blue blanket to wrap around the base... but I just had to give you a peek of it right at this very moment.
I will have to take a pic of the box it came in which was at least 4 times bigger than the tree.
Anyway... there are 12 days before Christmas... and I'm still working on my Christmas cards. Instead of distressing my card fronts one at a time... I decided it would be quicker to do it a page at a time. I'm doing my cards in shades of pink and green.... lots of distressing, shimmers, and painting.
Tomorrow night they will be cut out and mounted on cardstock... and the people without bows will be wearing a party hat.... but I love this vintage family.
Now... if you want to meet a Master in the world of distressing... you must and I mean you must click over to this blog NOW: Tim Holtz
Tim gives clear and concise instructions, great photos to match up with what he is doing... I mean... I swear I think I can learn how to do a lot of these things. And... I see there is a new 3 hour DVD filled with how-tos... I'm practically orgasmic. What a perfect little stocking stuffer to all those good little crafters in your life.
Later peeps... 2 Fingers Out
