The Crafty Moms 8/11/13

Hello Everyone!!!
 An'Jenic here to share a The Crafty Moms post with you all. 

A few days ago I Skype a good friend of mine. Her kid and mine were in First and Second grade together. They have been best friend every since.  And so has us parents. We would always join them for special holidays. We talked about a lot of the good times we all had. And my friend is the reason why I started crafting.  Any way we begin to talk about getting our Christmas cards done and the girls talked about making cards for each other. How exciting that would be. 

So you know what I did a Christmas card. 

The funny thing is we have a park right outside our back yard and early this morning. The neighborhood kids were singing Jingle Bells. 
 I think all the little kids are ready for Christmas. Lol!! 

So as I begin my card I received my weekly email from CAS(E) this Sketch:  
Here's the beautiful sketch I followed. 
I really like the way this turned out. For the base I used Kraft and the layer is Pure Poppy by Paper Trey Ink. For the creaked back ground I masked it off so that I could get it stamped in the right place. I used Pearl embossing powder by Recollection. The stamp used is called "Cracked Hello" stamp by Mark's Finest Papers. The cute sentiment stamp is from a upcoming release called Joyous Season by Mark's Finest Papers.  I really like the way this card turned out.
