Happy Sunday everyone! I'm back in the saddle, as they say--it was great to go away and great to be home again. My dh and I had a wonderful time in Philadelphia and the weather couldn't have been any better, low 80's w/ no humidity and sunny, blue skies--the best!! We saw just about every historical site the city had to offer and walked for miles and miles (my feet will tell u the story)! The 2 pictures above are of the Liberty Bell and Betsey Ross' house (she sewed the 1st American flag ya know). We were able to relax and just enjoy each other w/o any outside distractions--a must every now and again. We always made sure to be back in our suite in time to watch the Olympics every night though--we're obsessed! Loved watching the amazing Michael Phelps swim and the US gymnastics team--we were cheering so loud, I thought the people across the hall were going to complain--LOL! Gotta love the Olympics!!
My card today uses another stamp from the Whiff of Joy line by Katharina Frei. I will tell you that these stamps are great to work with--nice, deeply etched rubber and stamp out fantastic, and fun to color (which is always my fave)! This stamp is called "Charlotte in Sled" and if you check it out on the website, you'll notice that the stamp has only one reindeer attached. Welllll, you know how I love to change everything up--so I stamped an extra reindeer, cut it out and popped it up with dimensionals to look like she has a small team of reindeer--just different & fun! This xmas dp is from Imagnisce's "Snowy Jo" line and the cs is SU's new "riding hood red" cs. All of the images are colored with Copics, stickles added to the jinglebells and snow/snowflakes. The snowflakes and sentiment are from Sweet 'n Sassy's "Snow Friends" stamp set. I added diamond glaze to the sled and some highlights w/ my Inkssentials pen. Hope ya like it and maybe get ya thinking about your Christmas cards (yeah right u say)!!
If I get all my chickies in order, I will be posting my BLOG CANDY on Monday for going over 10,000 blog hits thanks to all of you great blog readers/stampin friends out there!! I've got some great goodies to give away, so be on the lookout for that!
