Old Thyme Christmas

Hello everyone! I had a nice long weekend to get caught up on lots of stuff at home, managed to get some stamping/coloring time in too! I'm furiously trying to put a dent in the ole Christmas cards for family/friends pile. This is one of my favorite older PTI sets, Friendship Jar Holiday Fillers. I love all the little fillers you can use to put in the jar, candies, snowmen, snowflakes...

I used this gorgeous vintage collage patterned paper from Summertime Designs 'Old Fashioned Christmas'. I just love antique Christmas images, I wish I I had a collection of old postcards, calendars and greeting cards. The art was just incredible, and there's just something about the colors that were popular back then....

The candy cane jar was colored with Copics, added a little white highlight along the tops with a Sharpie Poster pen to make them look shiny. A twill bow, some tea dyed bakers twine and little colored jingle bells tied around them finishes it off nicely.

The sentiment seal is from Catslife Press, layered over some Giga snowflake punches. 

Thanks for visiting!
