ah Ha! Snowdays ARE good 4 something!

Today is day one of the winter stamp at twopeas... ( and of course we crashed the site right off the bat ) :) So, I did read that one was an Card you could send to a single person for Valentines day.
I think this will work, even though its not snarky. my thought was something like Blue this Valentines. Anyways that HUGE lace heart is from Inkadinkado, I bought it and one of the sentiments below from an eBay seller a few days ago and they arrived in this afternoons mail. so this card also falls into the use the last two stamps you bought challenge too...
Its stamped with versafine vintage sepia on pp, then the torn edges are inked with colorbox creamy brown fluid chalk ink. its 5 1/2 inches Square. no idea on who makes the cardbase cardstock ( it has tiny flecks of brown in the blue though)
The other challenge i remember reading about was to do something Chocolate themeded. and this Heart Chocolate from Peddlers pack is one i picked up in their store in Beaverton last weekend. Its stamped with vintage sepia on a scrap of holly pond hill pp. and trimmed with mini pinking shears, there is some liquid pearls on the frosting detailing part of the image. the Sentiments from Stampa Rosa and on Basic Grey PP. That ribbon i can never remember the second half of the mft name but the first part is Creative something. ?? ( they dont sell it where i live and i always forget to write it down when i do come across it)
This was pretty much a take off of the first one, used EYELETS ah, havent done that in a LONG time, they even go through all the layers to the inside this time. ( haven't done something like that in many years, it kinda feels "freeing" ) Sentiments from Stampa Rosa also.
This is the sentiment that came in the mail today. figured i had to use it with a skinny person image. and i figured you can't get any skinnier then the bellas. ( haha ) ribbon is from Offray.
Your gonna be seeing these off and on for a while, i stamped and embossed this stocking at least a dozen times when i first got it so, i now have 3 cards made from the pile, the one on the left, that sentiment in the circle was punched from a larger lable image from su with an 1" circle punch. so, its up on popdots. the one on the right, the sentiments stamped on the inside, a Penny Black one that reads "a MERRY Christmas to you!"
This is an old PSX image ( the candle stick ) and these are some of the images i colored a while back when i had the free time in the end of Dec. the Card on the right, the sentiments from the All Holidays (SU) Set and the card on the left the sentiments from A Muse.
This fun image also came in the mail today as a Wish granted to me from Kathleen Curry, I was so excited to see the size of this in real life, I think i will be trying harder to "win" this set in the future. :) its colored with prisma pencils and the Hello is from Stampendous, the cardbase and the mat on the sentiment are Cranberry Crisp, and the peachy distress is PP from the scrap bin. ( I'm sure if you scroll down I have named this paper not to long ago but, I dont remember who makes it already)
Today Tim had to go into work ( which was supposed to be for about 4 or 5 hours which turned into 12) and J went to one of his friends houses for a while after lunch so, we have a stereo in the Hobby room and since no one else was there to add noise to the room i decided to turn an old old tape on in the stereo. nope doesnt sound "right" but, i could hear enough of the notes that i can recognize it as "music noise" rather it has a beat and I can anticipate that part again. (couldnt make out the lyrics ) but, that's ok. gonna try it again soon maybe with something that has the lyrics printed on the cover.
watching the news is the easiest thing to follow on the TV. so far.
am watching L O S T again, but its kinda hard to follow the cc and the box they are playing at the bottom with the what happend the first 3 years commentary... ( hopefully everyone who has never seen it is now caught up and they will do away with that part )
Anyways, stay warm!
