Well hello there! I did NOT think I was going to be stamping this afternoon, because I had already planned to bake an apple pie and clean the house a bit. Besides my apple pie dripping all over the inside of my oven and causing billows of smoke to pour out of the oven it was a success! (luckily it was time to take the pie out of the oven right when it was dripping so the pie wasn't cooked in all that smoke!) You should have seen it, It's about 48 degrees out and I had every window open, every door propped open and it's so windy this afternoon because of a storm we're having…I guess that was a good thing because the smoke blew right through the house and the smoke alarms never even went off! Let's get back to the important part, the apple pie came out perfect…actually the boys have been downstairs twice in the last five minutes to check and see if it's time to try it yet!
I did get to sneak in some stamping though, probably because my husband went out on storm duty because of power outages…he's in Rhode Island tonight and by the sounds of the 20-something inches of snow falling in NY he may be headed there next, who knows…what does this have to do with me sneaking in some stamping you ask? He left on storm and I quit cleaning, that's what!! heehee
Anyway, to the card at hand…I had so much fun using my Big Shot yesterday I decided to make a card with it today. I used the Scallop Envelope die, and Holiday Treasures dsp. The little snowman is from Merry & Bright. The card stock is Chocolate Chip and Real Red. I used a Rhinestone Brad with some Baja Breeze striped grosgrain ribbon, along with Real Red and Baja Breeze classic ink (I used a Blender Pen to color in the little hat and scarf on the snowman)…the snowflake background if you can see it is Baja Breeze ink too. On the little card in the envelope I stamped Merry Christmas in Chocolate Chip ink, and that stamp is from the Holidays & Wishes stamp set.
