God Jul allihopa! To be honest I'm one of those people that forgets about Jul until it happens to be December then I'm in a rush to get my cards out. This year is going to be the exception (I hope). 😀 Since I live so far away from my family and international shipping can be super expensive I tend to put all my good will and wishes into the cards I make.
This week's card is one of my favorite Christmas stamps. It is one of a super cute set that I purchased at my local craft store Panduro Hobby. I made cards for my family about three years ago in cheap colored pencils - I hadn't woken up to the wonders of Alcohol Markers or even OMS + pencils. 😀
This little guy is my favorite from the set, but I tell you what it is a very close call. They are all cute and a lot of fun to color. Speaking of color. In Sweden Jul is celebrated with lots of Red. Everything is red. All the gift wraps, the candles, decorations - everything is red! I actually understand it though, it is so dark and grey during Christmas here that red just pops. Keeping this in mind, my Jul cards are almost always Red with white and a touch of gold. I want my family to experience a bit of a monotone Christmas since in the States it is usually a color over-kill. 🙂
