Good afternoon! I have a few personal cards I have made over the last month that I will be blogging over the next couple of weeks, some of these will be Christmas cards.
Today's cards were Christmas cards for my neighbors and there is a story behind them.
During the summer my best friend and neighbors took her girls on vacation and I looked after her house and fur babies.
Whilst she was away a local church was raising funds for their children's section by "flocking" peoples yards overnight. So I paid to have her yard flocked in time for her return home:
35 bright pink flamingos adorned her front yard, her house is the first one as you enter the subdivision so everyone saw! She wasn't aware I was the one involved but paid the church to tell her who had done it!!!
Well the flamingo theme has stuck with us so I just had to find some for her Christmas card:
This is a digital stamp from Sasayaki Glitter. I colored them in using Copic Markers and added Spectrum Noir clear Sparkle pen which was difficult to show in the photo.
I then matted my white card base with black card and pink snowflake digital paper. The black card was also used to mat my image and sentiment which I typed and printed using my PC.
I little snowman charm just complemented the design.
The neighbor in between us was also in on the "flocking" so I made a similar card for her using the same products:
Both were taken in good humor and resulted in our outdoor Christmas lights gaining a pink lit flamingo!!
Thanks for stopping by and if you like what you see please let me know in the comments!
