Well, yesterday just flew by! I puttered around in the morning for a bit and then went to BJ’s with Heather. We stopped at the Deli and got some bagels for breakfast and brought them back to my house to eat them. I finally found some more of my Christmas ornaments and put them on the tree. Around 2:00 I called my friend Sandy to see if she wanted to take a ride out to the Scrapbook store to visit Renee and she said yes so I headed over to her and picked her up and out we went. The store is very barren at the moment, I took some pictures of the one wall that is filled with paper and some stamps and dies.
We had a nice visit and some other people stopped by while we were there. I dropped Sandy off and came home with the intent of getting some Christmas cards made. I did manage to get the ones that my boss wanted for her niece and nephew made but not much else! I’m just going to go through my stash and send out some of those. I do have a bunch of cards made and they should go to good home and not sit in a box! That is one of my New Year’s resolutions. I’m going to send out or sell my cards that I make! That will help pay for some of my crafting addiction too! LOL!
On today’s post which is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge…
I decided that I should get a few more uses out of my Christmas stamps! The base of my card is Whisper White Card Stock. I adhered a piece of All is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper to the base and then used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangles to cut out the frame from a piece of Cherry Cobbler. A strip of Soft Sky goes down the left side to keep with the sketch. Yes, that’s a shaker, shocker! LOL! The background of it is a piece of Lost Lagoon and I heat embossed the greeting from the Seasonally Scattered Stamp Set in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The frame is again cut out with the Stitched Rectangles from a piece of Pear Pizzaz along with the Window Sheet. Some of the snowflakes from the Frosted Sequins are placed inside and Foam Tape adheres it to the background. I know, I make a lot of shaker cards but I really do love them! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge. I’m off to the mall this morning with Heather and Stephanie, I need to do some Christmas shopping, it’s getting close! I thank you for coming by to see me and I hope that you all have a great Sunday!
