SSSC98 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.
In my last post I had mentioned my daughter was out in the front yard playing in shorts and a light jacket - well, not so much as I'm typing this - it's a balmy 9 degrees F with fluffy snow everywhere. All is right with the world again.
I'm so glad to be back stamping again - it was nice to have a little break, but I started to miss all the ink and paper cuts, lol! I thought I'd go for a quick and simple card this week - yeah, right. I bought these Marjolaine Woolies, from Basic Grey, and knew I wanted to use the tree for this sketch and I got the little owl punch for Christmas from a fabulous stamping friend, so he definitely needed to make it into the card. That's easy - paper, felt stickers, owl. DONE! Nope. This thing took me more than 4 hours to make because I kept fussing with it.
Rhinestones in the tree, rhinestones on the owl, rhinestones on the scallops, buttons in the corner, bow easy bow, sponging on the edges... and then when I was all finished, I had the brilliant idea to add the Thanks sentiment and totally screwed it up - dammmmmmit!! After a little surgery and patch job, I finished and I have to say, I love it much more than I did before the surgery, so chalk one up to a happy little accident.
