Thank you so much for all the emails, comments, etc. I have received since I started blogging. What a sweet welcome! You are the best!
I have a lot of things planned for this blog and I cannot wait to share it with you. Bear with me on these initial days...
I made this card today because I have been neglecting this Figgy Pudding paper (gasp!) I have hardly used any of it because I definitely am a hoarder of paper...not a user. I am trying to change that a bit!
These stamps are from Gina K Designs (http://www.ginakdesigns.com/). The adorable snow scene is from a set called "Got Snow?" I just love it...reminds me of winters in Pennsylvania (which i miss so much!)
The image was stamped and colored and i cut all around the edges of it (left the ground intact). I created a frame for it using my Nestability dies. After assembling the card (that is a big AFTER) I used liquid applique to make the snow on the ground and I dotted little specks of it all around to mimic falling snow. Cute and easy touch.
I am working on a challenge that I do with my friends on mondays. All I can say is that this week---it is a REAL challenge. I will post it later on so you can vomit...hopefully I am joking about this but I cannot guarantee anything at this point!
Ok....about my first blog candy---I will be posting how you can win a set of stamps by My Favorite Things and another fun "surprise" on tuesday. So make sure you check back to see how you can win it!
Update on my son: Yep...he has a "pustule" in his hand. My dh is going to bring home the lydocane and scapel on tuesday so we can get out whatever is making his palm swell. Poor thing. I am gonna have to sit on him for this one...I will be warning the neighbors. (Oh, I guess I should mention that my dh is a physician so that no one calls social services on me!!! lol!)
Card recipe: Gina K designs "Got Snow?" and sentiment, ribbon (source unknown), black brads, nestability dies, liquid applique, copic markers, cardstock (real red, ww, olive, basic grey).
