Laugh until your heart overflows!

Stamped image and sentiment are from CTMH C1468 Winter Joy.
 I've been creating Christmas Cards this week for my friends and family and this is one of my favorites!  I love this sentiment and the children at play! It brings back memories of sledding at the golf course with my sisters and brother.

I wanted to add a little color to the silhouette image so I double stamped the image.  The first time using some aqua blue ink and then I stamped over the colored image with Staz On Jet Black ink purposely stamping off center - just a bit.  Because I created a multiple number of these cards I sometimes got "too good" LOL and stamped my black too close to the blue - when that happened I inked up a Stampin Up blender pen with the blue ink and added back some of the shadow to get the look I wanted.  Here is a closer picture that I darkened a bit so that you could clearly see my shadow:

I hope your holidays are filled with wonderful memories new and old.

Thank you for looking!

Thanks for showing my card! I love it. I have been redoing my craftroom and hanging cards that have been given to me, that inspire me. I then decided to put the in sections so when someone asks who made it, I can give credit to whomever. Guess you must love me cause I have a whole box of wonderful, inspirational and dear to my heart cards from YOU!

A gorgeous card, love the kids in the snow. We have had our share this winter. I have met so many people from around the world through blogging, it is amazing. And because I use a picture of the Falls on my blog as a header always, have met a lot of people who have moved away, visited, or went to school in the area...such fun.
I am 10 years older than you so weren't in school at the same time. Nice to meet you Patti!
