Happy Monday all...easy for me to say as I am on vacation this week. I hope you all had some time to enjoy your stamps and dies this weekend, I know I sure did. I made a Christmas card using some new stamps and dies from Lil' Inker's latest release. If you haven't seen their new products...get right on over there and check them out! I was a little worried this year...I hadn't been making holiday cards throughout the year as I have in the past. Once I opened up my new order from Lil' Inker's, the worry evaporated as I realized how quick and easy I can make some very cute cards in no time at all. Here is the first one I have made:

Lots of Lil' Inker on this card starting with a mat of Stitched Mats: Squares, just the perfect size to create a cheery holiday scene. I cut a picket fence (PTI) and decked it out with some pine garland using a Martha Stewart Pine Bough punch. See those cute red bows? The are from the newly released Christmas Bits Die set from Lil' Inker which includes five cute iconic holiday images. The sentiment is from a new set (Jolly and Joyful Sentiments) which coordinate with the Joy Word Die also just released from Lil' Inker. There is also a Jolly Word Die that coordinates with this sentiment set which I plan to use later on this week.

Here's a link to the Lil' Inker store just in case you've been living under a rock and haven't seen everything from their latest release. You'll love it!



Cathy, this is gorgeous and so happy that when my dies arrive (hopefully tomorrow) that I can CASE this one!

You crack me up--who has been living under a rock???? This is one fabulous card, and I love seeing all the Lil Inkers you have used. And, that picket fence--just perfect. I bought that pine bough punch last year or the year before because I saw you use it, and then forgot all about it. You need to get a job at Lil Inkers.

Oh Wow! This is stunning Cathy - again all the details but it still looks so clean - what a great mix of elements! Love all the boughs decked out with the bright red bows and bling - and the JOY just pops against the blue!
