Happy Sunday!!!  I managed to get a card done today but it was not easy.  We are still working on our floors and I have no where to set up my stampin stuff so I have to dig through boxes every time I need something.  I'm not sure of the names of the stuff I used as I have already put them away and i can't find my catalog to look them up.  The tree stamp I think is called Christmas lodge.  I stamped it in Always Artichoke on watercolor paper.  I distressed all the edges on all the layers.  I inked up the edges of the main image with crumb cake ink and added shimmer paint in champagne mist to all the edges and to the tree, it has lots of sparkle.  On the crumb cake layer I used the snowflake embossing folder from SU.  I added some silver brads and some early espresso quilted ribbon. 

On the inside I layered a piece of always artichoke and whisper white paper.  The sentiment is from the Beautiful Season set in the big catalog.  Well I think this turned out very nice considering all the trouble I had finding the stuff I wanted to use.  Thanks for stopping by, leave me a comment and let me know what you think:)

Still here

Wow I have been MIA for a long time.  We have moved in to our new house but I don't have things unpacked or a place to stamp yet.  We are redoing all the floors so it will be a while before things are back to normal.  I did however find a few of my stamping thinks and couldn't resist.  This is a card from France's Christmas workshop.  I didn't get to go to her workshop this year but I did purchase the kit, which I never got around to putting together.  I love this cute skinny snowman.  I colored him with my colored pencils and I also added a couple of the new jingle bells to the brad, love them.  Well I hope you guys wont give up on me, I will be back from time to time until I get things set up again.  I still check everyones blogs and I can't wait to get back to normal.  Have a great week and feel free to leave me a message, I would love to hear from you.
