When it rains..............

Well I believe fall has FALLEN! Wow - I'm sitting at my computer hoping the furniture on my back patio doesn't come through the window!! But - what a great day to sit inside and stamp or scrap! I don't know about you, but this weather totally get's me in the mood to stamp, scrap, bake, drink coffee, etc. I decided to make a Christmas card today out of products from the new holiday mini catalog! I know I still need to get a sample ready for the perpetual calendar for the October class, and I need to create and post the 3rd project for the stamp club ladies this month, but I have all these brand new goodies sitting in my office calling my name....................

Isn't this adorable? I must admit I did CASE the idea (copy and stamp everything) from another demonstrator, but I did change it up a little. I used the Snow Swirled set (pg 32 catalog) with the Versamark pad for the background on the Choc Chip CS and Choc chip ink for the greeting, the new pack of Designer Series Paper "Ski Slope" (pg 12 Mini Catalog), Brown felt ribbon w/stiched edge (pg23 Mini Catalog), Little Felt Flurries (snowflake pg 18 Mini Catalog), and Antique Brass Build-A-Brad (pg. 185 Catalog).

Maybe this will inspire you to get creative or think about Christmas cards. Sometimes the thought of making all those Christmas cards is overwhelming, so what I've been doing is starting earlier and making 20 of several different designs. This way I can often use up supplies I have without needing enough for 100 and I don't get burned out doing the same thing over and over and over and over (you get the idea :-)

Enjoy your weekend! I love fall....................!
