Old Time Christmas

Doesn't this sweet little girl from Greeting Card Kids remind you of the old time images that used to be on Christmas cards? I know I'm probably giving away my age by saying that, but it really does make me remember way back when things were so much different. I even remember wearing wool winter leggings as a kid and how much I hated them especially since I always got in trouble for coming home from school with my leggings soaking wet from jumping in snow piles. My mother was never happy about that and wasn't shy about letting me know it.

I again used my new found Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pen to color the image. The background is Deck the Halls Designer Paper and I added the Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding. The seam binding has a beautiful sheen to it and I plan to stock up since we don't have any Satin or Taffeta ribbon available in Cherry Cobbler and Cherry Cobbler has turned out to be one of my favorite colors.

Greeting Card Kids is a terrific set if you love to color because it has four images of old time children, or should I say retro kids. In addition to the Christmas girl there are images for Valentine's Day, Halloween and School Kids. If you want this set for yourself just click on my name at the end of this post to enter my Stampin' Up! store.

Thanks for stopping in today.
