A Simple Christmas Card

have i ever mentioned how much i absolutely LOVE prisma pencils?!?! haha I think this is one of the very first stamps i ever purchased. ( a long time ago) and i have Never up until today made a card with it, its not that i didn't like it,but i kept trying to color it with markers and it frustrated me so i set it aside... and then recently i went through the box that has all my Christmas images and stamped every single one of them, and I've been coloring them at night while my family watches the boob tube. Picked up an lap board thing at Staples on black friday and have a floor lamp ott light and my little tote of pencils and I am good to go. Think this one will end up going to my mil & fil. ( hopefully it wont be a let down, the card i made them last year was one of the better ones i have ever made. so?) I know i know its the thought that counts but still... :)
the whole card It's 5X7 in real life, the PSX Christmas Chickadees stamp is stamped in Palette Noir Black ink and colored with pencils, the Hero Arts sentiment is stamped in Ranger Archival Olive on SU Very Vanilla. ( my brain always types ultra smooth vanilla but they don't call it that anymore)
The Solid green pp is from the Basic Grey line Blitzen and its called Holly, the other is from the Fruitcake line and its called Hollyberries & Spearmint. the Textured green cardstock mat is Bazzill, the vintage lace trim is from the embellishment studio and the red ribbon is from Starlitstudio ( Cindy Lyles ebay store)

The first one is jaw-droppingly brilliant, what a work of Art!! I love the bird one too, brilliant colouring, something I need to get the hang of.

I can't remember my first stamp.

I think some of mine were TAC from 2002.

Lovely coloring, indeed.
