well we just got home from picking up hubby at the airport – thank goodness he’s home! i really do much better with him here not away. i know i CAN make it on my own since i did it for most of the boys’ lives but i would just rather NOT be on my own :)
guess what was waiting on the doorstep for me when i opened the door to go to the airport??? Peppermint and snowflake skittles!!!!!!!!!! FINALLY!!!! These sold out almost immediately when i first released them, i am SO glad more finally arrived (they have a long journey overseas). BE SURE TO GRAB THEM UP WHILE THEY ARE HERE!!! >>CLICK HERE<<
i am Piling It On again for this one! i have included the following challenges:SFYTT – sketch Pile It On – Tinsel Town – use some glitz SCS CC – Always Artichoke, Razzleberry, Barely Banana with velvet/flock as dessert Bitten By The Bug (BBTB) – Ribbon Frame cut from JOTS Practical Scrappers – anything Christmas
And here is my card:
I think this might be one of my fave cards this year! purple & green are my fave color combo ANYTIME and JUST monday i had decided to get a few things at Ms for my mini tree and a wreath and decided to do the purple & green color combo they have out this year. so when i read this color combo challenge the next day i jumped on it! the dark green panel is actually a piece of SEI velvet paper – that stuff is awesome! the ribbon frame has three layers – the shadow, the frame with leaves and then just the ribbon portion – using all three is what really gives the die cut it’s depth. rather than use the paper berries that also get cut out with this i decided to do the berries with platinum liquid pearls (>>CLICK HERE<<) . if you get peaks when you dot on your liquid pearls just thump the back of the paper and the peaks will fall. the ornate spellbinders tag went perfectly with the theme of the card and the Dusty Lavender Pezabling (>>CLICK HERE<<) i brought in for Halloween is a really nice match for the Razzleberry paper!
my main image is from SCACD and is a Karen Lockhart from her window series – this one is Holiday Window. i colored it with copics and then cut it to fit in my frame. i accented the berries in the image with platinum liquid pearls too. my sentiment is studio G as always! (>>GET THE NEW ONES HERE<<)
many of you have requested instructions on the card i did for fancy folding TIOT on tuesday – i have made the template and hope to get it finished up and have directions up tomorrow!
now i am off to bake early morning cookies with Pezza, i got a cookie press from Pampered Chef – been wanting one for AGES!
have a FANTASTIC day!
