It's a Clarity Christmas!

****Spoiler Alert*****
if you are one of my co-workers, neighbors or family in Germany, do not look any further ;)

Ok folks, they have been a long time in the making, but the Christmas cards I will actually be giving out to most on my card list are finally done.  My other half and I decided to pick a card to give out to everyone each year so we would not have to worry about to whom we gave which card.  This year, we chose to use one of the lovely designs introduced by Barbara Gray using her Clarity Stamps.  I tried to mix it up a bit, but the essence is definitely Barbara's lovely design.

A couple of my favorites

There is no doubt that these cards took a bit of time and effort, but I think they were worth it.  I cannot take credit for all of the coloring as I did have some help from my other half and a dear friend.  Speaking of the coloring, they are done with Letraset Flex Markers and Pro Markers.  The stamps are all Clarity Stamps which were stamped with clear Versamark heat embossed with a variety of embossing powders in gold, silver, gold sparkle, pewter and even one in iridescent blue.

I will be proud to give these out, and I cannot thank Barbara Gray and her uber talented team enough for their products and ideas.

Now I am off for a nap I think.   Take care and have a happy and healthy holiday season!
