Happy "middle of the week" to everyone! Another beautiful day here....sunny and not too darn hot! Would you believe I spent a good part of this afternoon painting our Troybilt tractor?!? It WAS red and now it's a beautiful shade of dark hunter green! I have some sunflower Donna Dewberry transfers that I am going to put on tomorrow. I am sure my guys won't like it, but I am the one that cuts our 2 acres. I love doing that! I painted the tractor because it's been left outside over the winter and looked really dirty and had a few rust spots that I cleaned off. Rustoleum metal paint in WONDERFUL! Now, the tractor "lives" in our garage that I cleaned yesterday.
Had a chance to do up 2 more Christmas cards. This one is stamped with the SU set "Cardinal Christmas". I rolled on the Pine Bough design with versamark and heat embossed it with Evergreen EP. Then I went back in and stickled some of the dots with Christmas Red. The base card is SU Gold Metallic and the green cardstock is Garden Green. This is one of my fav Christmas sets to use. Til tomorrow....

This is so pretty and I just love cardinals with their bright red. You sure cannot go wrong with stickles :)

OH this is a beauty! Stunning colors, too! I'd personaly love to see some pictures of your newly painted tractor - I've always loved those growing up! I'm sure you did a marvelous job, just as you have with this cardinal card! :)

I just saw this gorgeous stamp in the SU catalog and I am drooling. Your card is so pretty - my DH loves cardinals and this will have to be a must have set!
