As usual, I was not happy with my first vintage-style creation; it took me waaaaay longer than it should have, so after I finished it, I went in a totally different direction:
My issue was that I don’t have many ornament stamps—a couple, but I just wanted something different. Then I remembered my ornament punch from the Merry Mini punch pack, so I punched out a few and strung them on some baker’s twine:
The red, silver and gold ones are all from SU’s glimmer paper, but the colored ones were punched from cardstock that had been covered with SU’s adhesive sheet and sprinkled with some Martha Stewart glitter. I just love these colors! The sentiment is from AmyR Stamps, Handy Christmas Greetings, and the card base is Pistachio Pudding.
I hope that you will stop by the Merry Monday Christmas card blog to see the amazing cards that the other designers created….and share your card with us too! It’s a great way to get a head start on your card stash for 2014!
We have had so much snow lately, I thought it would be fun to make some “snow ice cream” after seeing it somewhere online. So we sent Grampy out to get some snow and mixed it with milk, sugar and vanilla:
Stir, stir, stir…..
And then the tasting:
Not too bad….it was more like ice milk than ice cream, but between the two of us, we ate the whole thing!!!!
And when it melted, we drank it like a milkshake!
The recipe we used can be found HERE. Enjoy your day!
