Happy Thursday to you all! Do you have any big plans for the weekend? We actually have nothing going on which is kinda nice. It will take me 1 full day to put away all 12 trees and clean up--I have it down to a science now and they come down much quicker than they go up, LOL! Hubby takes the lights off the trees and then takes the boxes down to our storage area in our basement--he gets the outside lights too cuz I'm NOT going out in the cold, hee hee! The house always looks so bare after I take the Christmas decorations down, kinda sad!
I have had so much fun reading your "sunny day plans" answers to the blog candy question (see here to enter)! You all definitely cheered me up and I PROMISE to finish reading "Pillars of Earth", lol! I am really enjoying the story, its just the violence that bothers me. This is why I don't watch thrillers/horrors/sad drama movies because after I've watched it the pictures/thoughts stay in my brain for weeks and months. I'm a scaredy cat by nature so everything scares me and I have had horrible nightmares since I was young. I wake up hubby at least 2-3 times a week sitting up in bed and screaming. LOL (chuckling) poor hubby--but after 15 years he has gotten used to them and now he just pats me on the shoulder and says "you're fine, you're fine"! Ha! What a comfort he is now hmmmm? LOL! I even can scare the dickens out of the dogs and cats that are in the room with us, hee hee. But seriously, not fun at all for me and very disruptive to my sleep. So that's why I try to keep my visual thoughts and pictures clean KWIM!!

Okay I created a card with NO coloring--gasp--shocker I know!
I inked up "Lace Heart" with Versamark ink and embossed it onto black cardstock. I used the Stewart Superior "Filigree" embossing powder in silver to emboss this stamp--it is the BEST ep to use when you have a fine detailed image like this as it keeps its shape and doesn't meld all over the place. After embossing it I cut it out and added small pearl accents with my Viva Decor Pearl Pen (ice white) and some stickles too! The mat cut behind her was done with my SB's nesties Labels 15 and then embossed with the CB folder "swiss dots".
See you back here tomorrow with another FUN post!!
