Well, leave it to us (me, I mean) to decide to remodel the bedroom in NOVEMBER. Too cold to open the windows for the paint fumes, no TIME to do anything else (and we have leafpocalypse going on at our house right now--the last pickup of leaves was 75 bags!), and of course, NO CHRISTMAS CARD MAKING!!!
However! The room is looking great, and we have very little left to do. You should have seen us installing the plate rail moulding on Sunday. You really did NOT want to HEAR us, especially if you have small children or ears. It all came together somehow, and I have it all caulked and painted and it's DONE!
Photos when it's all done, I promise!
Anyway, I lied about the NO Christmas cards part. I did manage to get a few put together, but the list is going to shrink this year, I do believe.
I made these--
This is a wonderful and BIG stamp from Stampendous, that also comes with a big snow swirl stamp that I LOVE. I stamped it in SU Soft Suede ink on Kraft cardstock. A little color, a little white, a little Stickles, and Viola!
I did try a few different ways to go about getting there with these.
Also, notice where I got a "blat" of glitter glue (I'm not writing Stickles AGAIN) on the little one's tummy. Rats.
Again, this is "fine", but I would never send it to a crafting friend. This one goes to a more casual acquaintance, at best.
So, lesson here is, you can get 'em quick, or you can get 'em good. But quick doesn't suck, either, some days. Write it down. This stuff is GOLD, I'm telling you.
Thanks for stopping by!
GO MAKE CARDS!
