Just Rite Stamps and Things with Wings

Good Morning!

It's a gorgeous, hot, sunshiny day here in Central Florida,,,,,,,,,,and today, I'm showing you,,,,,,,,,,,,

you guessed it! More Christmas cards LOL

I am determined to get my cards done EARLY this year, so I can have some fun making some fabulous, fun gifts I've been pinning on Pinterest for days now!  I have some fun ideas I can't wait to share with you,,,,,,,,,,but I want my cards done FIRST!

It's been so long since I played along with the Justrite Stampers challenge, and so this week, I was determined to do it!

The theme this week is "Things with Wings",,,,,,,,,,,,and of course, with my current Christmassy mood,,,,,,,,I had to use one of my favorite Justrite sets,,,,,,,,,an oldie but a goodie,,,,,,Backyard Birds!

It was so much fun to create a gift set of a card AND an ornament to go with it,,,,,,,,I played with this image last week, creating a similar ornament, but for the challenge, I just knew I had to go one step further in the wow factor!

This cardinal is just so gorgeous for Christmas cards, I couldn't resist,,,,,,,,,,,,

and since Justrite stamps mix so well with each other,,,,,,,I paired it with the Justrite Merry Christmas background stamp!  I just LOVE how gorgeous this stamp looks all embossed in gorgeous glittering gold! So Christmassy!!!!!!!!

Here's a close up of the ornament,,,,

And a close up of the focal point on the card,,,,,,

You can really see that gorgeous embossing here in this pic!
