Oh What fun it is to play!

Oh what fun it is to play in my stamp cave all day.  Well, actually a couple of days.  We had a quiet Thanksgiving here this year.  Being from Canada, we are always torn between celebrating Thankgiving in October on Columbus Day weekend or in November, the traditonal American Thanksgiving.  This year, my DH and my youngest Alana celebrated in October.  My collage grad, Lindsay and I went to Canada to visit family.  Well, Lindsay headed back up north to visit her boyfriend this weekend so we ended not having Thankgiving dinner.  Christmas will be about the same menu so I will look forward to that.

In the mean time, that left me with a few days to stamp, make curtains and generally be thankful for spare time. I made a six sets of cards to sell for our library fundraisers and some gift tags as well.  Lucky for me I also had time to create some off the cuff fun stuff as well.

I love this one.  Lots and lots of BLING.  I just love the new Stockings Accent Die.  I used the big shot and cut out the ornament from the red glitter paper.  Martha Stewart supplied the punch for the greens from garden green card stock.  I used the Owl Builder punch for the small circles of glimmer red to create the berries.  Martha's glitter in silver, poured over sticky strip and then rhynstones added on the strip.  Bling, bling it was just popping all over the place. Snow Swirled sentiment embossed in silver and everything mounted on Silver metallic cardstock created a WOW.   The ribbon is offray gray.  Hope you like!
