Christmas is on it's Way




A Christmas card for a guy, I'm afraid it drove me daft, I was really disappointed in the quality of the stamp, the back of the rubber was ridged behind the greeting, it took several repeat stamps to get the sentiment stamped, the centre was missing on the first two attempts, thank goodness for my stamping platform. The truck stamped perfectly first time, I've had the stamp for perhaps 2 years but had never used it before.


Coloured with Promarkers and kept really plain and simple.

A fabulous CAS card and a great image. So annoying when a stamp does't work properly, shame too as the sentiment is superb for the image.

Fantastic CAS Christmas card for a guy, Meg! Your coloring is beautiful and I love the color of the truck. I would never have imagined you had trouble stamping the sentiment just looking at the photo. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Christmas. Hideko xx
