Good morning everyone! I hope you are ready for a super weekend! I know we are!! We are so super excited as Nick will have is District Basketball Finals today and he is looking forward to getting his birthday present (a little early) and then we get ready to go on a little vacation to see my family for Thanksgiving!!! So excited!!
Today marks the last of the Create with Connie and Mary Card "Create"tions Holiday Edition. :( I have had the best time being a part of this and I feel so honored that I was asked! Thank you Connie and Mary!! As you know, on Saturday we show you all a small favor that we have created using our featured stamp set. I used Frosty Friends this week. What a truly adorable stamp! I am all about snowmen! I really haven't met a snowman I didn't like - lol! My favor today is a little ornament. I had some trouble coming up with something using just this one stamp but I think that this turned out really sweet! I used the Oval Accent die to cut two shapes from muslin. On one piece I stamped the image in black StazOn and colored it in using a blender pen and ink pads. I used Real Red, Gumball Green, Pool Party, Pumpkin Pie and Crumb Cake. Then I put the two shapes together and used some linen thread and a needle to sew the two shapes together. Before sewing the whole thing closed, I stuffed some poly fill into it to make a little poofy. Then I sewed it shut. I found some old wire and weaved it through the stitches and shaped it. Then I added some Victoria crochet trim, linen thread and a bronze button. Too fun!!
