No. 1 Friend

Good morning, Friends! I hope you all had a most wonderful Christmas! We sure did! Even though we had opened all our gifts earlier in the week, we woke up to our stockings stuffed with goodies from Santa! As an adult, I still find that so much fun!! And for Nick that seems to be the best part of Christmas! I love it!! We had a big dinner and then lounged the rest of the day watching basketball games while dozing off and on. Then we finished the evening with a game. Today my nieces and nephew will be coming down and spending a little time with us before we have to leave on Friday. I have heard it has been snowing quite a bit at home!!

Today's card is a simple one using the Affection Collection stamp set. It turned out quite different than I had envisioned but it'll do. I took a piece of Very Vanilla and ran it through the Big Shot with the Honeycomb embossing folder and then adhered it to a piece of Basic Black. Then I tied a piece of Basic Black 1/8" taffeta ribbon around this and popped it up onto a card base of Primrose Petals. Then I stamped the frame image in black StazOn onto a piece of Very Vanilla. On top of this I stamped the oval burst image in Primrose Petals. I sponged this piece with Crumb Cake and adhered it to a piece of Basic Black. This panel is popped up onto the card. Then on a scrap of Very Vanilla I stamped the banner image in Pool Party and cut it out. I also sponged this with Crumb Cake and adhered it to the card. Then I stamped the word onto a scrap of Very Vanilla in black StazOn and punched it out with the Modern Label punch. I sponged this with Crumb Cake and popped it up onto the card. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
