Lamp post

I found this stamp at the thrift store on base, and it reminded me of when we were stationed in England so I bought it, these are going to our two friends we met in England that we still keep in touch with.  The little sign had a blank spot and so I actually found a little stamp that fit in there.

Stampablities-- Vintage Lamp post, colored w/markers and we wish you a merry Christmas sentiment stamp
Wild Rose studio -- Annabelle's Christmas paper
Stickles -- Yellow and diamond on lamp post
Wink of Stella -- clear snow
Stamps of Life -- minis 4 circles, sentiment on the lamp post

Here are a couple close up pics of the cards.

  I like how the paper in the second card goes with the brick.

Sunday was such a beautiful warm day in the 60's and the sun had popped out, now we are back to bitter cold, I am thankful for those days that are nice that pop up when you don't expect it.  Getting excited, my daughter will be coming on Friday, alot I would like to get done before she gets here.

Hope you are having a good week, thanks so much for stopping by,

Oh, what a lovely Christmas card, Connie! It's very festive for the holidays and I espcially like the 'We Wish You a Merry Christmas' at the top.

Hugs and blessings!

Wow! These are both really beautiful, Connie! Love how you colored and glittered the lamp post, and the musical sentiment is wonderful!
