About Me

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

Hello all,

After traveling to Colorado and Wyoming this past week for work, I'm very glad to be home. After getting my hair cut and running other errands this morning, I spent most of the afternoon adding to my Christmas card stash.

Luckily, Jen B. has a great sketch this week on The Freshly Made Sketches blog. Using one of the new Christmas sets from the Stampin' Up Holiday catalog, I made this sparkly card.

I decided to use gold and silver for my card today. It took several attempts to figure out the placement of the trees, but I finally found a layout that I liked. The stamped tree is stamped with VersaMark ink and embossed with gold EP. The other trees are SU Glimmer papers.

Here's the inside:

We're having another "neighborhood" dinner this evening. Good food and good wine. I hope you have a great evening yourselves.

Thanks for stopping by,
