Christmas Present & Christmas Past

posted by Vicki-Stamped Smiles
Hello friends!!  I'm back with another post for you.
One of my favorite Christmas movies to watch is the classic "A Christmas Carol" with George C. Scott as Mr. just wouldn't be Christmas for me without watching that!
They always say that you must always remember your past, live for today and look to the future, so I thought this would be a good time of year for that!
Since I've been with Whimsy Stamps for a while, I thought it would be fun to make something current and then take a look at a past creation I made!
 Christmas Present - For my creation today, I've used this adorable Holly Beary Fairy rubber stamp by Meljen's Designs available at Whimsy Stamps.  I've also taken the sentiment from the Peace On Earth stamp set by Crissy also available from Whimsy Stamps. 
I've colored the image with Copics, I then glittered her wings and used my Zig Painty paint pen and added silver dots to parts of her dress, around the image and for accents around the frame.  I've used all of the rhinestones and ribbons to follow a sketch, which I thought worked nicely with this image.
Here are my challenges for this card:
Top Tip Tuesday - anything goes (Whimsy is sponsoring...but hurry!)
C.R.A.F.T. - Christmas birthday

And here's a look at Christmas Past
I took Crissy's Jolly Puppy Kisses stamp and made a fun Christmas style wall hanging.
As I was digging out some of Christmas things, I came across this frame, so I thought it would be fun to share with you again.

Christmas Future -  I certainly CAN'T show you anything from Christmas future as I'm not quite aloud to...yet!  But please stayed tuned in to this blog to find out information about a rubber stamp blog hop and other really fun new releases!!  Hope you enjoy your Christmas and thanks for joining me today!! HUGS
