Hi peeps! Ah, it's Wednesday....the middle of the week, on the way to the weekend! I told you yesterday that I made another "wooden" card using the leftovers from my Tuesday card (you can see it here)....and that it was perfect for the Merry Monday challenge this week!
So here we go:
I made this pretty simple....the Crumb Cake base is plain, only punched corners. I pieced together some of the leftover Hardwood-stamped "boards", added a Crumb Cake tree (W+9 Stitched Holiday Icons) with white ornaments, simply made from a hole punch, and topped with a stitched star (same W+9 die set):
The sentiment is a die from Simon Says Stamp called Deco Tree:
My only other embellishment was some white baker's twine....simple and easy!
A few of you asked if I had gotten any responses to my frustration with "fuzzies" or lint on my photopolymer stamps. I did get some good suggestions, but the only one that I hadn't tried yet was a product from Lawn Fawn called a Stamp Shammy. You can look it up on their website...seems like a good product and my Paper Players teamie Laurie said she loves it! So I'll keep you posted!
Another rainy day....and Cassidy has been BUGGING me to let her use an umbrella on the way to the bus stop. I had an old one, and we practiced putting it up and taking it down (I can see big problems on the bus with these complicated maneuvers!) and when I was satisfied she knew how to do both, off she went with Grampy to the bus. We'll see if she leaves it at school, or on the bus, or somewhere in between!!!
Enjoy your day!
