Wheel and Lovely as a Tree......

 PS Please read the bottom of this's a e-mail that I got that will make you think about the real meaning of Christmas.
Yes another video this my 3rd one this week but this video is quick and it's one that I promise a long time ago and I forgot about it so no more wait to see the little black box. Well what is the little black box in the starter kit.... A few ladies that join my team in October when they received their kit they contacted me and ask what is that little black box well it was the ink cartridge for the Stampin' Around and I told them I would do a video and yes I forgot so today video is how to ink the cartridge and how to use the wheel.   So a quick video and is perfect timing to see how fast it is to decorate you Christmas envelop. Plus last week I did a card with Lovely as a Tree and I was trying to make a card that I got last Christmas from my Friend Anna and I was close but not close with the color so here is the card that I totally case from Anna and plus today I have a workshop and this is one of the cards  that we'll make at the workshop. If you would like more information on how to join my team please e-mail me or call me I would love to have YOU on my team!
 I use Always Artichoke and Vanilla for card stock. Ink Always Artichoke and Crumb Cake (crumb cake is just for the sponging around) The greenery around is just the tree that I stamp on the edge only. This is a quick card but very lovely.
 Just add a little of Dazzling Diamond on the tree.
Before I let you go here a e-mail that I got from Jodie after she saw my post of my Christmas Tree that I was saying it will not hold the ornament and it was bare but full of memories......
"I love your Christmas tree! Reminds me of the year I couldn't afford to buy gifts and a tree. Friends started sending gifts for my daughter, someone during deer season shot a deer and filled our freezer with venison, and my best friend and her husband went out in the woods and got a "Charlie Brown" tree for us! it was the best Christmas we ever had!!!!  The true meaning of the season shone through in the worst of times! Thank you for all the wonderful ideas and desigins that have inspired me over the past few months, You are the Best! May you and yours have a wonderful and blessed Christmas and a New Year filled with God's richest blessings!"
Is this the truth we thing that we need all the best decoration and gift overflow under the tree but really Christmas is not about the tree, decoration or gift it's all about the birth of Christ our Lord. Here a little saying from the stamp set Comfort and Joy "May the Comfort and Joy of Christmas bless your life through the coming year. Thank you Jodie for sharing your story we all of us. May God bless you and keep you safe.
