It's Christmas time again and I LOVE it!
I love Christmas! It's probably one of my favourite times of year! I also LOVE the fact that I won't be busting my butt to get my cards done this year! Imagine that............I might have to make a few, but I won't have to shame myself and go out to by them, only to hear "Vicki? how come I didn't get a handmade card" So this year will be different, much much different!!! This week our Hostess Extraordinaire Debbie challenged us to use eyelets on our card!!!! Well I followed the sketch precisely and was quite pleased with this card! The main image is a digi image from Fred she Said...........isn't it adorable! Anyway I made a point of going outside to take the picture. Now that the weather is better I attempt to take outdoor shots as natural light seems to make the creations all that more pleasing to the eye.......... I came in totally excited to have my card completed several days ahead. Downloaded, cropped edited, now just to upload it to the blog!!! Feeling very very competent, as I went in to the site I notice "Debbies eyelet challenge" Debbies EYELET Challenge??? WHAT??? Well at least I had a little room to put a couple of eyelets on! In the two pictures you can see the card with and without! So when you're playing the challenge this week, don't forget the eyelets 'kay??? lol!
I came up with this funky colour combination, eggplant envy, kiwi kiss and not quite navy while looking at the heap of scraps on my creating table! Used to be a dinner table, but now we eat off T.V. Trays..........but then again, who even needs to eat when you can stamp (just kidding, we have a dining table thank goodness). Anyway as I was making a wee space to create, these colours jumped out at me. I like the combo!!!
Again in the spirit of actually using my Cricut Machine, I cut the embossed background from the Storybook Cartridge. I can report now that my Cricut is feeling appreciated! Nesties, Old Olive Ribbon, SU Scallop punches and of course eyelets accessorize this card! The sentiment is from a retired Snowflake set, of which I would tell you the name, but after some vigorous lawn cutting today, I am too lazy to lift myself out of the chair to go and check!
Hop on over to the Christmas Stamping all Year Long Blog to see all the delicious creations.....I've had a sneak peek and they're awesome! You can also link to the DT from my sidebar!
Happy Monday and stamp till you cramp!!!
