Let It Snow!!

I hope everybody had a great Thanksgiving!! Mine was as stress-free as they come!! No cooking or cleaning!!! I loved going out to eat!!! I got my inspiration today from the Just Us Girls challenge. One layer cards are not easy for me to do. I always want to add more!! I took some Post-It paper and cut out the PTI Mat Stack 4 and adhered it to the card front. I then laid my stencil down and sprayed the color shine. After I removed the stencil and die, I adhered the negative die image and used my Tim Holtz blending tool to add color and definition to the space where the Post-It paper was.
Stamps: SU-Sleigh Full of Toys, misc. sentiment

Love this!

I got to play with my stamps today!! Hooray!! I combined two challenges today!  The first was Free 4 All Friday on SplitCoast Stampers  and the second was the Cas-ual Fridays challenge. The Free 4 All challenge was to use a heart and the Cas-ual Friday challenge was to use 8 of something. So, I stamped 8 hearts!!

I had a pretty bad week last week. Nothing major, just me getting tired of single parenthood when I'm not a single parent. I guess that is what happens when your hubby works the graveyard shift. Anyways...I'm over it now. I did need to make some cards this afternoon to help de-stress. I fell in love with the Easily Distracted stamp set  from Sweet Stamp Shop!! So cute!! I paired it with the stamp set from my October card kit from Simon Says Stamp, Giving Thanks. I decided to play along with the Mojo Monday challenge today! It was an easy layout to work with!!

You're Amazing!!

I have been busy the last 2 weeks!! Ashlan competed and I worked our home meet for gymnastics last weekend, her last regular season meet was Friday night, parent/teacher conferences were this week, and Saturday was my anniversary. I've been married to my honey for 17 years now. It's amazing how time flies!! To add to it, my fridge/freezer died yesterday. BOOOOOO!! So my honey and I are heading out to look at one that someone posted on craigslist. Hopefully we can get the price down just a little.
Anyways!! I got to play with my stamps again this morning!! Yippee!!! I am really loving the set from my Simon Say Stamp November Card Kit, Love This!! It is very versatile!! I played along with the Seize the Sketch challenge today. I loved the clean and simple design!!
