It's Cold out there!

Brr! It is actually cold this morning! Freeze warning. Last week had some stamping friends over and this is the card I massed (ok, only 4) produced. I figure if I can get at least 4 done a week, until the 3rd week in December, I'll be doing good and get all my Christmas cards out. Ah, the best laid plans of mice and men. Card deets: Cardstock-real red, whisper white. dp from paper trey (red) and amuse (?green). Ink- palette black, image colored with glitter copics (it sparkles in real life) Stamps- Baby It's Cold Outside (My Favorite Things) Accessories- twill (papertrey), crystal brads.

A Bird in the Hand

Got started on some Christmas cards recently. Had colored the images last year but finally put them to paper this year. Same recipe, different colors. Ah, the things that give spice to life. Speaking of...my middle daughter went on a Zombie Walk last night. What a great excuse to shred some old clothes and put fake blood all over you. I applaud the brave father that chaperoned these crazed teens. You deserve "Father of the Year" for that!!

Fall is finally here! The temps are perfect and the leaves are beginning to change. I'm so excited that I've finally gotten back into the stamping mood. (and found some time) My wonderful stamping buddy had the basket set (I don't remember the name of it) and she let me stamp a bunch of them for later use. We're getting ready to paint the downstairs family room and possible part of the upstairs rooms. Dh is going to pressure wash the house this weekend. Yup, its fall. Thanks for patiently waiting for me to get my groove back.

Card deets: Cardstock-chocolate chip, whisper white, dp from Michael's. Ink- palette black and brown, image colored with copics. Stamps- basket from SU(not sure what set) saying from Papertray. Accessories- jeweled brads, office file punch (SU)

Still here...I think

Sorry it has been so long since I've posted. We've been in full swing with school, activities, life, etc. Have I stamped? A few times, have I photographed? No. Bad me. I'm heading out this weekend for a scrapbook retreat in the hopes of getting last years photos caught up. I am attempting to get myself back into posting by next week. So bare with me. I'll have more cards to show in a bit.
