I was looking through Glowbug (aka Chris Olsen's) gallery yesterday, as she was SCS's featured stamper this past Saturday, and I fell in love with this beautiful card, so I CASED it . . . well, kinda. *wink* Then I went to post to the featured stampers challenge page, I realized that I cased a sketch challenge. Well . . .you can imagine my disappointment . . . but hey, it's still a cute card, and . . . I need to get moving on some Christmas cards, so I just might CASE this one again. :) Thanks, Chris, for the inspiration!!
I didn't cut my front layer rectangle quite as long as Chris did, and then when I went to center it, my ribbons were in the way . . . so I attached it a little more to the right. I used a snowman from Great Impressions, used faux stitching because I am still fighting the tension settings on my sewing machine to get it to sew paper properly (its as old as me and kinda stubborn too -- ohh, that part is not at all like me! *wink*) But I used that lovely Two Scoops, which we still have a KL Stampin N Scrappin (see the quilt-like pattern? Pretty huh?! I think so) and some cuttlebug folders, D'vine Swirls and Snowflakes, punched the SU sentiment from All Year Cheer out with my small and then large oval and adhered them with pop dots on top of pop dots under the image. The image was stamped with Momento ink and colored with prismacolor pencils, gamsol and some stickles for the fuzzy parts of his mittens and earmuffs.
It was dreary and cold here yesterday, so . . . I sure hope your days are Merry and Bright where ever you may be!
By the way, before I go . . . if you are waiting on an order, the following are on the way:
1. The 2008 Halloween stamps and the Yummy collection of Magnolia stamps should be here any day, as they shipped the end of September.
2. BasicGrey papers shipped out today (all the papers will be in stock very soon)
3. High Hopes stamps are shipping out on Wednesday, and Bethany tells me it should only take a couple of days shipping!
Woohoo, I am so excited to get them all -- of course they will probably come the same day ;) which makes for a busy day, but that's okay. I love to get them right back in the mail to you all either that afternoon or the next morning if it is late in the day. That way I know you aren't waiting on me.
