DT Holly

Challenge 5, over at cherrfulstamppad is Deck the Halls.
Don't ya just love Christmas and all the colors? Here is a simple card using Hero Arts holly and Sentiment from Stamping Up. The holly was colored and trimmed, then set onto a dotted embossed background paper. Below that is the sentiment on a double cut out from the Cricut machine. All was mounted onto a glossy red and then onto the card. A little red satin bow finished it off. This should have been a very quick and easy card to make, it took me all morning!!!
I couldn't get a square piece of paper, then I couldn't get the sentiment centered and the....and then.... This is easily a 20 minute card!!!! LOL Some days I need to go back to bed and start over.
That all aside you need to hop on over to the
CheerfulStampPad and join the challenge!

One for LO-LO

That means one for Lori, she calls me LA-LA, ya know, the first two letters of our name, guess ya need to be here! She is the one person that got me back into stamping again, just a year ago, plus a couple of days. All she said was "Why don't you stamp anymore?" So I made her a funny little card, which she has on her desk at work. Just to show her I have come quite far this year (thanks to all my blogger/stamper friends and their inspirations).This card was created for her. A new stamp from, you guessed it INKADINKADO was the inspiration for this card. As it lay there, unopened, next to my elbow as I was finishing up the last two projects it kept saying "Use me with the old lady, use me with........well ya get the idea. LOL She is a stamp from Idlwild, and is very used and loved dearly. This card also holds my first grunge paper flowers. I just learned to make them yesterday! YEAH! Plus some lace and pearls were added and all layered onto a black and white rose patterned paper, then onto a black card. Now that I think about it my blog reached one year day before yesterday, November 3, well what do ya know?
Oh ya, the inside of this card said "Even at our age"
Thanks for taking a look, and if ya see LOLO walking down the street, just whistle!
