On second thought......

You know how you make a card and think -

"Hey, I kind of like that"

and then you go make supper and when you come back and look at it - someone has been in there and made your card not so great!?

Well, I think that happened with this card - although it is growing on me.

The premise is good......that layout is fine, it is just that RED! and a bit of wasted space, now that I look at it.....sometimes you really have to take a step back! Probably best to do that before you post it! HAhaha!

I had to borrow Marcie's paper piercer because I broke mine trying to pry my scalloped circle nestability off of my cuttlebug mat........oh boy.....try to remember to keep that cutting side up.......LOL! I didn't notice until I started piercing that HER paper piercer was snipped off at the end also - thus the big piercings.

Then I had to use my Stamping Up tag maker punch for the bottom of this card (not so bad) because I broke my corner punch....... a wee bit of an expensive day.

Edited to add: Sounds like a lot of complaining about this card - funny thing is - the more I look at it, the more I like it! Forgot to mention about paper piecing the hat and scarf! Stamped it on red cardstock, cut it out and pieced it.

AND I bought a whole boat load of other "stuff" online today, because we are going to be at another bazaar, for the school this time, in two weeks so please, please, please hopefully everything comes in time!! (Papertrey Ink, Scrapping Great Deals, Pink Cat Studio, Verve Visual - if you are reading this please put everyone else's order aside and just look after mine..... ROFL!)

Actually, if it doesn't show up in time for this bazaar, there is always next year!!

Snowman Stamp: Inkadinkado
Sentiment: Sunshine Designs
Paper: Imagine That - Walmart
Accessories: nestabilities, paper piercer, tag punch, photo holder thingy

Now this card I loved right from the start because I absolutely think this is the cutest little stamp going! It is from Magenta and I bought it at the Paper Pickle, my local stamp store. Don't they just look like they are all snuggled up!?

Cuttlebugged the green cardstock with the snowflake folder (it definitely is not that bright of a green IRL) Used my corner punch on the bottom of the green paper ( I did this card before I broke my punch!) and then on the bottom of the stamped image paper.

I dug out my shimmer chalks that I haven't used in ages and just dusted the angels with them. Then I took my Krylon silver leafing pen and traced around the image-- popped it up with with some dimensionals, added some L'il Davis ribbon and brads and done.

Very easy!

I have to go and get my spot in front of the TV--Desperate Housewives is on soon and I think something happens to Lynette!!

I am sooo looking forward to the next couple of weeks when I get a whole bunch of NEW SUPPLIES!!



  1. super cute little angels!

  2. I like the snowman card. I like the colors and the paper piercing. I like it all.

    The angel card is super cute too. I love the embossed bottom.
