Taking a break from Christmas, sort of..

It's been a bit of Holiday overload the past few days, company Christmas parties, making cards, baking cookies, decorating, etc.  So, I decided to take a break and work on some non-holiday themed gifts.

Here are a couple of cards that will be going into a stationary set for a relative's gift.

One of my new favorite color combos is Midnight Muse and Pool Party.  They are so soothing and make me feel more relaxed just working with them.  Getting rid of some of the excess stress is always a good thing during the Holidays

I lightly sponged a 2" high strip of Whisper White with Pool Party.  Using Pocket Silhouettes (retired), I stamped the wildflowers in Pool Party and then Midnight Muse on top of that.  The edges were sponged with both ink colors. 

The sentiments on both cards are from the set Warmest Regards (retired).  These are very quick and easy cards to do, they don't use a lot of supplies, and you could use any color combo and sentiments on them.  So, if you need any last minute gifts you could make a set in about 20-30 minutes.

Happy Holidays!
