Stamping with Stephanie

Almost December!

Wow, It is so amazing how the time can slip right by me. I guess when you work full time, have 3 kids and other activities it can happen. I meant to post this card a while ago but I had so much going on in November. I had a craft fair, then an unexpected trip back home for a funeral and then Thanksgiving. So my apologies but here is a new favorite stamp of mine. I think I have become addicted to some of the Stamping Bella stamps. An addiction may be an understatement. One day at work I did some casual shopping and $100 later I have about the whole collection! I hate when I have free time on my hands at work. It is only badness that follows!! They are so darn cute tho. This is the Christmatini stamp. I did this card for my card class this year. I have several friends that will be getting this card for the holidays too!
I used SU bashful blue, always artichoke and silver paper, markers and some SU ribbon. I painted the glass with crystal effects for that shimmery look! Hopefully, I will get some time to play with my new SU digital studio. I have a goal of making calendars for everyone for Christmas. I really wish that my photos were well organized. It would be a whole lot easier!! If I have time to show those before I send it off, I upload a month or two!

Sweet Sunday challenge #42

Yippee, I'm getting to participate in Karen's challenge this week! I was excited that I could sneak a few moments this morning to make a card for her challenge. The only downfall for the extra time was that I missed the gym because Logan had a fever when she got up! Now I need to force myself to workout at home. I might do a few minutes but it definitely won't be the great hour that I would have had. Oh well. I have a craft fair that I need to get ready for too! UGH. I really need to quit waiting until the last moment for stuff. I getting a bunch of card packs ready. I'll be posting a sample of that later in the week.

I really like making cards that are the long note version. Since, the great sample used the "Very Thankful" set, I thought I'd pull it out and ink it up! It is such a adorable set too. The proceeds go to a great cause, the Ronald McDonald House Charities. I really like using the Taken with Teal and Chocolate Chip combo too. I know the pic doesn't look like teal. One of these days, I will be become a better photogragher! Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy.
