Happy Monday, peeps! A little late start to my week today, as Cassidy called me on Saturday and decided to come visit me for the entire week! Her last day of school is today and I was supposed to start watching her tomorrow, but I'll take a whole week! It just means a wee bit of an adjustment for my stamping schedule, LOL! I did make a few cards on Saturday to display at my upcoming club, and this particular one uses the pretty poinsettia design from the Flowers for Every Season DSP and the Itty Bitty Christmas sentiment set. I started out with the sketch from Christmas Card Throwdown:
And here we go:
Besides using the sentiment set, I also stamped some of the berries from Forever Fern in Poppy Parade to add as the other elements from the sketch:
I colored a rhinestone with a Real Red blend to accent the stitched circle element; it all went on a Whisper White mat and Just Jade 4 1/4" square card! Another Christmas card to add to my stash!
Yesterday Cassidy asked if she could type a note on my circa-1970 manual typewriter! I said sure! She had to practice a little at how hard to hit the keys, and the concept of the carriage return took a little getting used to as well! But eventually, she got the hang of it. I also had to show her how to make a manual exclamation mark...a period, then backspace, and an apostrophe.....who remembers typing being such a challenge, LOL!? We are certainly spoiled these days....no white-out or correction tape necessary either!
Thanks for popping in today--enjoy your day and be blessed!
