Hello & Happy Saturday! Do any of you have some special plans for the weekend other than staying warm that is? LOL! Today is errand & relax day but on Sunday we have to pack all the Xmas stuff away--I have it down to a science so it doesn't take very long to do if everyone pitches in. It's the vacuuming & dusting that takes the longest and then the house looks so bare afterwards, kinda depressing ya know! But it's time to put everything away & PREPARE for Spring, LOL! In my dreams right, lol?!!
Last night we ordered Domino's pizza and watched "Aliens in the Attic" with the kids--oh my that movie just cracked me up--the Grandma kicking butt at alien forces. Oh my, I laughed so hard--the kids always think I'm a weirdo cuz' I laugh harder than them, but I can't help myself. It's like the new "Chipmunks" movie--it just cracked me up although I have the Chipette's version of "Single Ladies" going thru my head constantly, LOL!
"Cherry Blossom" stamp by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD--available HERE! If you've seen the Copic "Gold" video (see video HERE or access it on my Tutorials/Templates page at top of blog) I did for the Copic Gold Bundle HERE, then you'll recognize this image that I colored and I had to use her for something special. I created a Gold Ensemble with a card and matching frame (frame is approx.6.5x6.5")! The dp is by Anna Griffin and the gold cs I embossed is from PTI!
Stewart Superior EP (the best in the biz' for fine line embossing) and then paper-pieced them on. I added some of my new favorite Zva jewel flourishes and then added some pearls to the ends. The bow was made with my fave Bow Easy and then I added a Petaloo Mulberry Rose (cuz' I think it looks like a cherry blossom) and then on top is a Prima Pearl Center (I love putting them in the middle of flowers or bows)! I like my layout for this one--I wanted to kinda mimic her kimono top in the layout & am happy with the way it turned out!
I Brake For Stamps called appropriately "Love Birds"--aren't they fun? (if you order anything from the IBFS store, make sure and use the coupon code "SAVE10SUZANNE" to save 10% off your whole order)! I paired the image up with these FABULOUS new papers from Kaiser Craft called "Lilac Avenue" HERE--the colors are lovely, there are glitter sheets and foil sheets included in the 6x6 pack!! I used my Mega Nestabilities Labels 8 to create the curvy border edge--just split it in half and added it and I love it! So cute--I love this color combo I tell ya!
Have a fabulous weekend and see ya back here on Monday!!
