Swirly Birdie Christmas



Hi Everyone! Happy Thursday! I'm still working on my Christmas cards. Are you done with your Christmas shopping? My goal is to finish by this weekend and send them out to my family and friends and other parts of the US by Monday or Tuesday. That's the goal. . .we'll see what happens!!

Inkadinkado has some really cute swirly Christmas images like this one. I heat embossed the image with silver embossing powder. It gives the image a shiny metallic appearance.

I colored in the snowflakes on the image using Sakura metallic gel pen. I really love the Sakura gel pens. They work so nicely especially on dark card stock

Anyway. . .I don't really have time to chit-chat so this post will be short again!!

I hope y'all have a fabulous day!!!
