What a whirlwind couple of days we have had! We enjoyed gathering with our tailgating friends for the Thursday night Chiefs’ game, had a chance to visit dear friends in Kansas, and after multiple stops for some shopping we made it home. Why do we feel like we have to cram everything possible into a city trip? We looked for birthday gifts for our oldest granddaughter, Jim needed several things before deer season is here, another stop to pick up items for a tailgating snack, and a couple of stops for items we need before Germany. ALL besides the actual reason for the trip! Anyone else like that??? Multi-tasking travelers???
Snowflakes In Shades Of Blue
I know I for one LOVE DSP – Decorative Series Paper. I love the coordination of colors, patterns, and prints that Stampin’ Up creates. BUT sometimes, it’s nice to go back to those early days before DSP and simply focus on stamps, ink, and paper. Today’s card is a throwback to those times with simply stamping directly on cardstock. I used the snowflake stamps from the Christmas Lights stamp set, and the Night of Navy snowflake is a die found in the Twinkling Lights dies. Both can be purchased separately, BUT when purchased together as a BUNDLE you receive a 10% discount. Who doesn’t love saving money????
Snowflake Card Extended:
Looking back at this picture extended, I think the next card will be completely stamped BEFORE folding so the snowflakes cover the entire 4.25 x 11 strip of cardstock. The snowflakes can overlap the scored lines – not necessary but would be a nice touch, don’t you think??
Snowflake Card Front View:
I cut the Night Of Navy snowflake from the Twinkling Lights dies and the greeting label from the Labels Aglow die set. The sentiment and greetings both came from the Brightest Glow stamp set OR you can purchase both the stamp set and die as the Brightest Glow Bundle to save that 10% again!!!
I’ll be back tomorrow to share with you, but until then, I hope you have a great start to the weekend. We have a busy day prepping for classes, but are also looking forward to having dinner with some friends as well. After dinner we plan to visit with other friends who are camping at the area state park and share their campfire for a bit before heading home for the evening. Good time with good friends.
It’s those little visit’s with friends that create memories for years to come. Yesterday we visited with a dear friend who has been suffering from cancer, and we anticipate it was our last time together. Even with that knowledge we were able to laugh and share memories from years past. Thank you Lord for those memories made during the past 40 years of friendship,
