Lida with Ornaments

Hello everyone....hope you are enjoying your weekend. As many of you are doing today, I am watching the horror of 9-11 on TV and remembering all the victims and their families. Please take a moment and honor the memory of those poor souls.

On a lighter note, I just finished a card for Friday Sketchers Challenge #119 using the wonderful sketch by my ueber-talented friend, Jacque. I stamped this adorable Papilio image on my recently purchased X-Press It cardstock and I must say that I am very impressed with it. I used papers from the new BG Jovial collection. I also used Atyou Spica pens for the ornaments for added sparkle. The snwflakes are Nesties and I used my Nellie Snellen die for the image.
Thank you for visiting my blog. Hugs, Christina


  1. What a sweet Christmas card!! I so love your details and the coloring of the cute image!

  2. I inked up some Papilio stamps myself today, among others, and preparing for Christmas cards.
    I am glad you like the paper. I should get mine on Monday.
    What a sweet girl but I love all the Papilio stamps. Your layout looks fantastic. I love all the embellishments...oh so christmasy....

  3. wow, die ist einfach PERFEKT!!! Diese tolle Karte hat für mich einfach alles was eine Weihnachtskarte haben muss: Ein wunderschönes Motiv, 'die' Weihnachtsfarben, eine Menge Glitzer, ein bisschen "Prunk" und "Verschwendung" und sie verströmt einfach eine richtige Weihnachtsstimmung.. wie gesagt: PERFEKT!
    GLG und einen wunderschönen Sonntag!
    PS: Sorry, ich hab' zur Zeit viel viel Stress in meinem "richtigen Leben" darum komme ich nicht soviel zum Kommentieren wie mir lieb wäre..

  4. Oh Christina, you have made little cute Lida into a absolutely gorgeous card with your exquisite coloring and the lovely details you have added. Those decorated trees are just right to set the stage!! Love the snowflake/flower and the reversible ribbon!! Stunningly BEAUTIFUL!!! Hugs...Jacque

  5. Hello Christina, I missed that movie, but can't help remembering each year. Peace on earth...
    Your card is totally awesome! Those papers are so rich and gorgeous, as much by their colors as their design. Love this die cut on which you placed the image,such a lovely shape. I second Jacque: Stunningly beautiful!

  6. Deine Karte ist ein Traum! Wunderschöne Farben, das Motiv ist zuckersüß und alles passt perfekt!

    Obwohl ich am Samstag einen schönen Tag hatte, habe ich auch sehr an die Opfer denken müssen! Dieses Datum jagt mir immer einen Schauer über den Rücken!

    Vielen Dank für's Mitmachen bei den Friday Sketchers!
