CHF Christmas

Short post today as I have a couple projects waiting on the craft table to try and finish tonight - I didn't have a much time to play as I thought I was going to have for several reasons.....First I had to have a gallbaldder scan which took longer than planned even allowing extra time :) (ahh such is life) and #2 Our LSS was having a big sale and I said I wasn't going to go as my stash is out of control overflowing as it is, but, alas I couldnot resist - 70% off all Xmas items and everything else a certain percentage off depending on how much you spent - I managed to get out the door with a nice bag of stuff for only 28 $ - mostly embellishments as I really do have too much paper. The only paper I got was the Xmas stuff and ALL of that was the Basic Gray "Figgy Pudding" from last year.
Anywhoo - These 3 cards were done using my newest stamp purchase from CHF . The music paper is from a music book that I used as a child in grade school - copys of some pages anyway (about 10 years ago when the 1-room grade school I went to closed they had a garage sale and the 2 things I had asked my Mom to get for me if she could was a copy of the music book and if they still had their copy of "Smokey the Cow Horse" - She was able to get the music book but no 'Smokey' to be found...)
Anyway I stamped and embossed on the music with clear and then sprayed with green and cranberry glimmer mist and let dry. I used this weeks sketch from CPS for all 3 cards. I also used CHF's new Xmas phrases set but even though they are embossed in gold they just don't show very well in my pics (murky and rainy here today). I also used gold krylon and assorted brads and rhinestones.
Well not so short a post after all - :)
I had better get back to the craft table as I won't have much time tomorrow - I will be rounding up supplies, doing laundry and packing for a short weekend jaunt to Helen Ga to play tourist for the weekend with the FAM - I am trying to get a couple things done to post while I am gone - we get back on tuesday and then I work the next 3 days (12 hour shifts...).
Take Care
