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
