Season's Greetings

Really, I still know where the stamp room is.... it's the uploading pictures that slows me down. Really.

I can't get old olive out of my head. I don't know if it strikes you as a holiday color or not, but every card I've attempted (and yes, not shown) has included old olive somewhere.



This was inspired by a fellow stamper (who I absolutely can not remember). Sponging the edges took away some of that stark white I struggle with.

Happy Tuesday, now go make it a good day.

Happy stamping,

Beautiful card! I love Old Olive too. I plan to use Old Olive and Rose Red for my Christmas cards. If I don't start them soon, I will be using it for next Christmas, lol!

This card is beautiful! I think Old Olive is a Christmas color - I like it with red - any color red.

Love the sponging in the corners where the images are stamped, and love the coloured berries (I've only used this stamp in one colour)!

This is such a pretty Christmas card! I love the brown added to the Old Olive! Sponging the corners is a terrific idea to get rid of all the white- I love it!
