Good morning, Friends! Well, I didn't get anything done yesterday- lol! Actually I worked hard on a stitching project that is for a Christmas present and have that almost done. But I did not venture out to shop at all! Sooo… It looks like today is the day! But I think I am a little more ready to do it. I just hope I can get it all done fairly quickly! Then Nick has an indoor soccer game and more basketball practice. Busy, busy, busy! His finals are also coming up this week. He says he's ready! And we will see if I can be ready to leave on Friday.

I had wanted to post another Christmas card but didn't get one made so I am showing you a card that I did with my stamp club this month. This one was inspired by a sketch from My Favorite Things. Here are the details:

  • Card base is Naturals Vanilla
  • Layer of Etcetera designer paper that is sponged with Baked Brown Sugar
  • Strip of Night of Navy card stock that was punched with the scallop edge border punch and then adhered to the dsp layer
  • Adhere panel to card with dimensionals
  • Squares were cut from Naturals Vanilla and then stamped with the script image from Notable Notions in Baked Brown Sugar
  • Sponge squares with Baked Brown Sugar then adhere to card
  • Cut a strip of Baked Brown Sugar card stock and angle both ends then adhere to card
  • Stamp circle image from Notable Notions in Calypso Coral onto Naturals Vanilla and punch out with 1 1/4" circle punch then sponge edges with Baked Brown Sugar
  • Adhere circle image to a Calypso Coral circle punched with 1 3/8" circle punch
  • Tie a bow with a piece of linen thread and adhere to back side of circles then pop the circle up onto card
  • Add a Night of Navy candy dot to center
Sounds like a lot of work! But I do like the way it turned out! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
