Coffee & Cinnamon

OMG it’s only 55 days left until Christmas!!!
For me it’s the same story every year…it always comes too soon…
I try my best to get started with the Christmas card early in the year, but I don’t get around to it, even less so now that I have the store, so I tend to end up with a mass production a week or two before Christmas. Sounds familiar? LOL
I suppose I could just go out and buy Christmas cards, but that somehow doesn’t feel right…
Anywho; this morning I made three quick and fun Christmas cards.
I’ve been playing with coffee filters and of course papers from Maja Design’s new Christmas collection ” A Gift for You”, which is this week’s LLC theme.

Card No. 1 was made with the sheet ” Given from the Heart”.
(Inked the filter with Vintage Photo to make it darker)
coffee2_miniCard No. 2 was made with the sheet “When the Snow is Falling”.
(Edges of filter inked with Tea Dye)
coffee3_mini..and finally card no. 3 was made with the sheet “Handwritten Post Card”
(Filter painted white with gesso)

Voilà! Three down only….hmmmm…many more to go. 🙂

All three images  can be found on the sheet “Fairytale of Winter” from Pion Design.

If you’re wondering what the sticks are, they are the newly arrived cinnamon sticks, available in natural brown and whitewashed. They can easily be cut into desired length, and let me tell ya’ crafting has never smelled so good! 🙂

Here’s a collage with the details:
