SO.. back to our regularly scheduled programming. Yes, last week I plum forgot this post. It was about Tuesday when I thought, "Wait a second... did I even make a card last week?" Nope, I didn't. I got carried away with other things!
I finally received my Papertrey Ink goodies from the March release. Yes, I said March. Canada Customs held mine, and a lot of my fellow Canadians' boxes hostage for nearly a month. Supposedly huge backups in Ontario for who knows what reasons? Anyway, it arrived here Tuesday, and I could finally dig in. I have 2 new Tag Sale dies to use to create some Christmas tags, however, once I opened that box, I was slaving away working on a publication call... so I never did get to those tags. With that said, here is today's card:
I really love stamping my own DP with Waltzingmouse's Big Blooms - Poinsettias... it's so easy, and it's always such a great result! Easily, though, my *favourite* background stamps are Off Beat Backgrounds (the polka dots on the right of my card)... I reach for that set time and again! I know that my colouring of ol' St. Nick's hat could use some work... I didn't really look at it well until after I was taking the photos. Again - my mind has been elsewhere this week. I'll do better next week, I promise!!
Now, I just have to include this photo, because I am so in love with these girls. When my second came out and hubby said, "It's a girl!" with the same shock I felt, it didn't hit me right away how *fun* it would be to have 2 of them. I mean, dressing them to match? HEL-LO!
How cute are they?! Okay, I *might* be biased...
