Toile Christmas

Hello and welcome! I know this time of year is busy, but I hope you are taking time to enjoy the parties, festivities, music, food and gatherings of this season. For the past 3 days I attended a Christmas party, Christmas musical, and last night went to a Christmas parade! I told myself to slow down and enjoy the whole month! My husband has a cookie contest at work on Monday so we will be baking together tonight and...he wants to incorporate bacon into the cookies! I'll have to do a follow up and let you know how they turned out!!

But this posting is for Sunday Stamps. We have a great sketch by our own Lisa. Check it out below...

Great sketch. The possibilities are many! Below is my take on the sketch...

This is still my favorite Christmas stamp set this year, including the matching DSP. I have been trying and practicing coloring with markers a little more. I ended up coloring this little guy with colored pencils, Prismacolor pencils. I treated myself to a set on Black Friday. I really like the pencils! After the holidays, I am going to look into classes or instructional videos that show how to shade and highlight. I think I might have found a coloring technique that I might be able to do! 

I love color. Lots of different colors and color combos. But, my favorite for Christmas is traditional Red and Green. There is something so classic and natural about it I am always drawn to it. I also like that metallic Gold or Silver look great with it to. Well thanks for stopping by. Make sure you stop by the other DT blogs to see what they did with the sketch. Please stop back again soon...



  1. This is beautiful, Melissa! I love how your cardinal pops on the striped background. Nice to get a peek at the toile paper without losing the bird on it.

  2. So very pretty! Love that cardinal and the designer papers are perfect! Fantastic card! :)
