Christmas Blooms

Ahh… happy Friday peeps! It’s been cooler here but sunny and pleasant so no complaining! Yesterday turned out to be a busy day. I did get a bunch of things done in the morning. Then in the afternoon I got an email from IKEA that the couch that I have been waiting to get was on sale so Jim and I took my Dad’s truck and picked it up. We stopped and got dinner on the way back and had that before embarking on the couch assembly. It didn’t take too long and I’m really happy with it! It is also a sleeper so when my cousin comes from London again she will have someplace to stay! We finished off the evening with a little TV, enjoying the new seating! This morning I will be cutting up the three huge boxes that it came in and seeing if there is anyone that wants the old one! 😀

I have a just because card for you today! I wanted to give the new Concord & 9th Blooms Fill-In Stamp a try! I inked it up with Jalapeño in my MISTI and stamped it three times onto piece of Solar White 80lb. Next I used Cranberry, Lobster, Noble Fir and Sunflower to stamp the fill-in images and added it to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. For the greeting I used the Concord & 9th Ribbon Banner Die to cut out another piece of Sailor White 80lb. The words are from the Concord & 9th Christmas Cheer Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped in Noble Fir. All that was left to do was to use some 3D Foam Squares to add it to my card! I have to say that the Blooms Fill-In Stamp is pretty neat! A fun background in any colors that you can imagine! I hope that you enjoyed my card for today! Thank you so much for coming but to visit with me! Have a fantastic Friday! 🙂
