I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Everything Is Cooler With You

Hi and Happy Sunday,

I finally managed a little time for stamping Friday evening and this morning. As I mentioned in my last post, I've been traveling every week for work which means weekends have been used for getting other chores done. Last weekend, my sister came for a visit and we spent the weekend planning for a trip to Ecuador and Peru to visit my nephew (her son) who is in Ecuador for school (semester abroad.)

Yesterday was "craft day" with my little group and I put together some cards for them to make on Friday evening. I'll show you what we made in another post.

Today's card is for this week's Paper Players Challenge. Nance is the hostess with a CAS theme for this week. I decided to keep things very simple by using some rainbow inspired patterned paper and when I went looking through my stash this popsicle paper from Doodlebug caught my eye. Then I looked through my Lawn Fawn sets and found this winter holiday set that I thought would make a fun combo, especially with the greeting. The sketch is from this week's Freshly Made Sketches, a fun one by Linda.

My brother has been having some health issues and this should cheer him up a bit.

I cut the square frame using a Die-namics Stitched Square Frame die. The bears and iceberg are stamped with Memento black and colored with Copics then cut out with the set dies. The greeting is stamped in Memento black as well. Super simple and probably took all of 15 minutes to make.

Here is the inside. I used the reverse side of the popsicle paper and die cut some clouds. The greeting is from the same stamp set. A fun non-holiday card made with holiday stamps.

I hope you have a wonderful Sunday afternoon. I'm off to Phoenix, AZ for a few days, then I'll be in Los Angeles on Wednesday. Hopefully, that will be the end of back to back travel for awhile.

Thanks for stopping in,
