Joy to the World

Beautiful Things_Dec 2010Oh, how I wish you could see this card is person. It’s much sparklier and prettier than the photograph reveals. And, it was inspired by this beautiful card by Dawn Easton on her Treasure Oiler Designz blog. My background was created with a round sponge and Heavenly Blue ink. A 1-inch circle punch was used to create a reverse stencil for the moon. Waiting for the Stickles to dry was the most time consuming aspect of this card. Otherwise, it falls into the quick and easy category. I love it.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy, Heavenly Blue, and Pacifica cardstock; Black and Pacifica ink pads; Beautiful Things and Christmas Wishes (retired ) stamp sets; Sparkles – Blue & Green Assortment; Martha Stewart Snowflake punch; 1-inch circle punch; Round sponge.

A Slice of Life: After a very busy, fulfilling day at work, I was all ready for beer and bowling (not in that order and only one beer) at 5 pm only to discover when I arrived at the bowling alley that I didn’t have to bowl tonight. It’s a three-man (woman actually) team with four members, so we rotate, and Kathi, obviously, can’t keep track of the schedule. Anyway, I visited with my teammates for a few minutes while enjoying a quick cocktail and came home. I guess I’ll stamp!

I hope your Wednesday was wonderful. Have a great evening, and thanks for stopping by.

How fun - a beer and stamping! LOL

Your card is beautiful - I love how it looks like you are seeing the view out of a window. I can see the "cold" but feel toasty anyway!

Looks just our part of the country. Lovely. And fresh fallen snow is so sparkly.

Lovely scene, Kathi. I can see the hint of sparkle and can imagine how pretty this is in real life.

Giggling over your bowling oopsie.
