Happy Tuesday, peeps! You can tell in blogland that the posts are more sparse as people are busy doing all their holiday preparations! I know I have less stamping time! So when I saw the Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch:
and I needed a quick birthday card, I went to my stash of 6x6 pads and came up with fun retro kitchen pattern from Carta Bella:
I love it when the paper does all the work! There's only one little bit of stamping on the outside--the sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays--everything else is patterned paper from the pad. Aren't these images cute?
I stamped the sentiment in Bermuda Bay and diecut it with a Stitched Rectangle die, then popped it up:
Thanks for popping in today!
The Elfdon saga continues! The company for which John does some part-time work had their Christmas party recently and they give out a lot of gag gifts; one of mine was some Warheads candy. They are very sour and I certainly won't eat them, so I gave them to "Elfdon" to put in Cassidy's Advent calendar. Needless to say, Cassidy doesn't like them either. Here's the note she wrote to Elfdon:
She was quite polite but she told Elfdon she didn't like that type of candy. Elfdon came back with a very good rebuttal, and Cassidy conceded!!! I love her little smiley face! And of course the gigantic heart! Enjoy your day and be blessed!
