Happy Boxing Day everyone! In Canada we still hold to the British tradition of a holiday after Christmas called Boxing Day. It used to be for setting out boxes for employees or those less fortunate...and somehow has evolved to become a crazy shopping day (think American Black Friday). You will not find me in a mall today! We had a lovely Christmas with my family. I love seeing Christmas through the eyes of my children and my niece and nephew. My nephew at 3, really got it this year and cracked me up with all of his excitement over everything. He very much loves playing with my boys, and my 15 year old is especially patient and attentive to him. When our son wanted a little break from “playing", my nephew said, “you have to come play with me some more! You’re my best friend!”. Our son said, “I guess I’m not tired any more” :)
Today the Power Poppy team is showing off some inspiration for the Peeps of the Week contest. My card will be for my Dad whose birthday is on Tuesday. This clean design will suit him. I used to spend a lot of time making really detailed designs for him, but he really doesn’t get it :), so less is probably more in this case.
I used Power Poppy’s set, Farmers Market , stamping it onto XPress it Blending cardstock and Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colouring up with Copics. The papers are Carta Bella Its a Celebration.
I’ve dressed it up with some enamel dots, a button and twine and some washi tape.
Here’s the girls playing along today:
