I really like the new Impression Obsession Carolers and they are just the perfect size for my type of cards. The Papertrey Ink In The meadow die set is my go to to create curved hills. I gave it a crimped design to look like snow. I glued some left over leaves around a circle to create the wreath for the lamp post. I used Sakara 3D Crystal Lacquer on the lamp post lights for a little shine. I dabbed some Viva Decor dots in red and gold on the tree. I then attached the Carolers and framed the design using the Spellbinders Matting Basics which are my go to for framing because I can not cut a straight line.
Update on the glasses, got my exam at the Optometrist and of course they want to sell you on their frames, lens etc. After I received a quote somewhere between $400 - $700 for a new pair I drove over to Costco. The vision center their quoted me $249.00 for the exact same items. Of course I opted for Costco. It really does pay to shop around. PS I did get a price from Walmart it was about $350.00.
