Noel Squares

Good morning everyone! I hope your weekend is shaping up to be a great one! Looks like another warm sunny day here. Normally that would make me happy (and it probably does for a lot of people around here) but my husband just showed me a picture of what one of our lakes looks like right now. NOT good!! You can walk right out into the middle of it! Yikes!! If we don't get a real winter around these parts we are going to be in a serious drought condition!! I am even afraid that our ski resorts are not going to have any snow for skiing. It's starting to get scary!! I really hope it snows a lot!!!

Lately I have been in a sort of creative slump. I have been doing so much sewing because I just haven't felt very creative. But I really needed to get some stamping done so I turned to my Pinterest boards and found a few to "alter". This is one of them. This didn't turn out quite like I had planned but it will work. I punched a strip of Cherry Cobbler with the dotted ribbon scallop punch and adhered it to the back of a piece of Crumb Cake. This is then adhered to a card base of Crumb Cake. Then I punched five Cherry Cobbler squares using the 1 3/8" square punch. To each of these I adhered squares of patterned paper from the Festival of Prints pack that were punched with the 1 1/4" square punch. These squares are popped up onto the card. Then I stamped the sentiment from Greetings of the Season in Cherry Cobbler. I added a star that was punched from champagne glimmer paper using the Merry Minis punch pack and put a pearl on top. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
