…But for whatever reason, when I was making my stash for this year, I failed to consider the cards that I needed for those who are close to home! Yup, that’s right! I had my list and addresses and labels all ready to go and never once thought about the cards I would need this year that didn’t have to go in the mail. But the good news is that it gave me the opportunity to play a bit more last night, and to come up with this cute greeting:
This little card features on of the cute stamps from Paper Smooches Vegtastic set. I actually recently picked up this set for a layout I have planned for my youngest daughters “first food” memories, but I think this little pepper make a cute (and somewhat unexpected) addition to this Christmas card. I wracked my brain for a while trying to come up with a sentiment that complimented the stamped image – what do you think?
Oh, and the googlie eyes and antlers that I added to the stamp image were actually inspired by the Paper Smooches December 15-28th Sparks Challenge. Here’s the picture that was supposed to be the inspiration for creativity:
I figured if a bottle could wear antlers, why couldn’t my cute little pepper?
I think what was most fun for me with this card was just coming up with something that was a little bit out of the ordinary! I know that peppers are not a usual Christmas tradition, but maybe they should be! After all, I think I would smile if someone handed me this card. Or maybe that’s just me! 😉
Make sure you go and check out all the entries for the Sparks challenge. It’s always fun to see what people came up with!
I’ll be back in a couple of days with a quick tip for a fun Christmas tag. See you then!
