WOW, I cannot believe it is already August 17th, and that I have 17 Christmas card done!
I learned something today. I should never emboss images before checking for stray embossing powder WITH my glasses ON! LOL I hate to admit it, but I now need my glasses for fine detail work. Okay, I said it. Enough about that!! (Yes, Dad, I finally admitted it).
I used my new Martha Stewart Border Punch today on this card. I stopped at Micheal's to pick up a stamp that a friend wanted, and I saw this border punch on clearance. I couldn't resist. I also picked up the stamp set that I used on this card. It is Merry Merry from Recollections.
The papers are kraft cardstock and Cosmo Cricket. The ribbons are assorted ones from Offray. The button is from my Great-Granny and Granny's button collections The twine I used was super white, so I aged it with some Colorbox Chalk in Warm Brown.
I am a wife, daughter, step-mom, grandma, granddaughter, niece, auntie, daughter-in-law, cousin, sister-in-law, friend, co-worker, and much more to many people. But if I can only live up to being the kind of person my dogs think that I am. They love me unconditionally. They laugh at all of my jokes, and they are always happy to see me no matter how bad my hair, makeup or clothes look. They love everything I cook, and the don't mind when I snuggle my cold feet against them on a winter's night. My husband and family love me just as much, but my dogs never see the bad in me. I guess that is why people love animals so much. When I am not being everything to my family or working my 12 - 14 hour shifts at work, I enjoy scrapbooking and crafting. I spend way too much time on my scrapbook lists online! Wanna know more? You'll have to ask!
