I hope everyone had a wonderfully restful holiday. Because of our blizzard, I had a couple extra days off from school- and that's ALWAYS nice! :)
Today I was finally able to get into my hide-away and do a little stamping. I needed a thank you card for Heather, who was my Secret Santa at school. Heather was such a good Secret Santa, and even though she knows nothing about stamping, she tried to give me some stamping things she thought I'd like- and she did a very good job at it! Here's the card I made for her:
It's a very simple card, but I'm very happy with how it turned out. I used Stampin' Up's retired Cranberry Crisp cardstock for the base, then a layer of Certainly Celery, followed by a layer of (I think) Basic Grey patterned paper. Of course, I just noticed that I have the patterned paper going upside down- oh, well, too late to fix that!) The cherry image, from Hambo Stamps, is stamped onto GP110 white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and colored using Copic Markers. The thank you sentiment is from a long-time retired SU set called Frame Fun. I then layered the image onto Certainly Celery and then Cranberry Crisp. The cranberry and celery colored ribbons are from the Offray Ribbon Outlet. If you've never been to the outlet in Hagerstown, MD, you've GOTTA go!!! The image is popped up using dimensionals.
I'd like to welcome all of the SCS girls who joined my new blog group, Glitterbees! If you'd like to participate in the group, there's still room...just click here and post to the thread that you'd like to participate.
Come back tomorrow for Bombshell Stamps' monthly Hump Day Hop!!
