Today has been a combination of lazy and busy. I didn't get my butt into gear until about 10. I spent a few hours down in the scrap cave trying to create some holiday cards. Here's what I came up with:
I ended up using 4 different mats because I screwed up when cutting the original ones.
The mats are from a Christmas stack that I got from Oriental Trading. It isn't the best paper, but if only using for mats or accents then it's fine. I cut the candy canes from the Gingerbread solutions cartridge. I added some Stickles to make it stand out.
I fought with the stamp. First I stamped it on white with red ink. Didn't like it. Then I tried green ink. No go. So I just stamped it directly on the card in black.
After I finished up these cards. The family and I went down the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) to adopt a kitty. Miss A found like 4 cats she wanted. In the end, this is who came home with us:
She decided upon the name Winter. She's still getting used to the house and not being around all the other cats, but I'm sure she'll adjust.
Another really positive thing, I'll be participating in another blog hop at the beginning of October. So keep a look out for some great projects.
