Magical Season II

Here's another card with the October Stamp of the Month. The scalloped piece I used to mat the stamped image was cut with my Cricut (Mini Monograms cartridge). There are scallop punches on the market in a variety of sizes, too. The embossed background piece was created with my Cuttlebug (I feel like a poster child for Provocraft!). The color combination is Crystal Blue and Petal - a bit unconventional for Christmas but pretty nonetheless. I used a little Prisma Glitter to give it some sparkle (me, too!). I am going to miss CTMH's Background & Texture papers. The Autumn Harvest and one of the winter collections (Winter Cozy, I believe) are already sold out. I hope that there is something coming to replace them. I really like having papers to match all (or at least, most) of the cardstock colors.

Sad as it is, I believe this is going to be the only card I'm going to be able to make tonight. Last night, I took a two-hour snooze after supper, which resulted in my staring at the clock until around 4 a.m. this morning. It didn't help that I was waiting for a phone call. Dustin and his girlfriend flew to Las Vegas last night, and he told me he'd call when they landed. I expected to hear from him around midnight. By 12:30, I was concerned. He called at 1:15. Their plane had been delayed in Fargo. In conclusion, I'm going to be early tonight.

I just got this stamp in the mail today!! I love snowmen and can't wait to use it.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who has both the Cricut AND the Cuttlebug! (And we won't even talk about how many versions of Quickutz I have either)! LOL

Love the card! Thanks for sharing!
