Smitten Mittens

Hi stampers!  Winter in Oklahoma SURE is different than Illinois!  It was almost 70 the other day!  I see that it snowed in Chicago yesterday right around rush hour.  Nope, don't miss that  :-)   I don't know if I'll ever need mittens here...aside from the ones on this card!

I haven't used the mitten set so I pulled it out the other day.  I pulled my colors from the front cover of the catalog.  Do you use pear pizazz much?  I can't tell you the last time I used it but I really need to use it more! I did a watercolor wash and some splatters in pool party after it dried to look like snow.  I also pulled my sentiment in from Hearts Come Home and it's PERFECT to use with mittens, is it not?

Also, WHY haven't I been taking pictures of my Christmas cards in front of the Christmas tree????  It's perfect isn't it?

I'm attempting to finish my Christmas shopping while Ian's at school today.  I went to Oklahoma City on Saturday and while I did well at the outlet mall, I didn't find everything I needed and then the actual regular mall was SO nuts that I spent over 30 minutes just stuck in the parking lot looking for a spot and then saying NO WAY and trying to get back OUT of the lot!  I think I'll stick to weekday shopping from now on!

Ombre Wishes and Free Shipping!

Hi stampers!  Surprise!  There's free shipping today!  I was totally waiting to order in January but a few things may find their way to my house if there's free shipping ;-)  It starts at midnight Monday and ends the following midnight.

If you don't own the things on this card, you may want to order them.  Just sayin' :-)

That emerald ribbon is to die for!  I made my sentiment ombre by inking it with sponge daubers.  Also, another great item to add to your list ;-)  And don't mind my few mistakes or halos on this card. It was just too good to scrap even with my mistakes!  These colors are also great together!!!!

Happy stamping!

Fab Friday 127

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  It's been a crazy week here and I'm ready for the weekend!  Jon went to China and his mom stayed and helped me take care of Ian so we've been busy!  I can't believe how close it's getting to Christmas!  I'm going to attempt a little trip to Oklahoma City Saturday to finish up shopping and let the guys have some bonding time ;-)  Other than going back home to Illinois, I haven't traveled inside OK at all and I'm kind of excited to go explore a new city!  Anyone from OK or familiar with OKC?  Anywhere I should hit up the shopping?

Anyway, since it's Friday, it's time for a new challenge at Fab Friday!  We've got something a little different for you this time around!  Since it's right before Christmas we thought we'd have a little Christmas party so show us your best holiday creation!

You can use this logo for inspiration (I really love it) or just go another direction entirely.  It's a free for all!  

I kind of wanted to base a card off of the picture but I didn't get around to it but I did make this!  I really like the snowflakes sentiments set and the coordinating framelits!  Everyone knows I'm a sucker for large sentiments and cute fonts!

I really love the combo of white, crumb cake, garden green, and real red.  You can't get more festive than these colors!  And the framelit that cuts out the little row of dots at the top, is just the PERFECT finishing touch!  It appears I may have used a retired button. Whoops ;-)

Make sure to check out what the design team did and play along with us!  Show us your Christmas best!

Happy stamping!
