Christmas Kisses

I bet you were wondering about the title of this post... It is also the sentiment on my card today. I have had this beautiful ribbon for so long and not had an opportunity to use it until now. I also wanted a berry-like vine to hang down but the only other one that I had wasn't quite right, so I used the one from, of all all stamp sets, the Flirty Workshop on the Go! Who would have thought that a summer/fall stamp set would have been suitable for a Christmas card? It's amazing what different stamps can be used to create sometimes! 

I think I am going to have to take a photography course in the very near future.. I have been using Picasa to edit my photos and sometime (like today) the colours are just not quite right. I used Pear cardstock and ink for this card and it appears more like Sweet Leaf in the photo. I just haven't been able to get the colours to look the way they are supposed to lately... Perhaps a better camera would help as well! I don't have to nerve to delve into the world of Photoshop on my own - it scares the daylights out of me, but I definitely need to do something to improve the quality of my photographs.

Enjoy, 
Alyson
