Another Lovely Shelf Card

Happy Tuesday! I hope you had fantastic holidays - but I am so glad Christmas is over! No more Christmas Cards for me :)
Today I`ll share another card I made with Nina Brackett`s gorgeous "Lovely Shelf" stamp set. I love orchids and this set contains this beautiful image:

So elegant, I am happy to possess an orchid stamp now! The leaves are colored with copics, the flower pot and the flowers are colored with pencils. Love the effect on Kraft!

How will you spend New Year`s Eve? The question these days :) I am curious to know! We will stay at home because of Alyssa - but maybe you are planning something interesting?

Have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Just a beautiful card Vanessa. It is a delightful little image.
I'm heading off to my SIL's for New Years Eve - about 2 hours from my place...so will have extended family around us to celebrate the New Year. Hope your little family enjoy your time together.

What a fantastic card! I always love stamping on kraft but what I like most about this card is the way you sewed around it! I am happy to be done with the Christmas cards too, all my other stuff feels new again!

I too am glad Christmas is over as now I can get to visit my favourite blogs again. :o)

I didn't realise it had been so long since I last came here and it has been lovely to see all your wonderful creations.

I hope you and your family had a lovely Christmas and I'd like to wish you a very happy 2010.

Hello Vanessa, I am a little relieved that Christmas is over too. What a cheerful fresh card you have created!

Kelley Eubanks said...

Gorgeous Vanessa!! I love colored pencils on Kraft too!! We have no plans for New Years... we usually just stay home because of Carver... which is really fine with me! :) We are not drinkers and that is what most people seem to want to do on New Years so... we just stay at home and off the roads! :)

Nancy said...

Oh this is gorgeous...that green is fabulous! Love your coloring of the orchid, you're right it looks wonderful on kraft. The whimsical stitching is the perfect frame.
We will be staying in on New Year's Eve...playing some games and enjoying dessert with good friends.
Wishes for a wonderful New Year!

So pretty! I love the pencils on the kraft! We always stay home for New Years, we don't drink or ever go out, and we would much rather stay home with our kids anyway! We always buy sparkling cider and toast with the kids! :)
