Ok-So I stole it...

I admit it---and I will give credit where credit is due! Today...was awful! I am a church secretary, it was newsletter print day and everything that could possibly go wrong--did. I cannot wait for the day-not just the work day-the day-today-to be over! That's why...I am incredibly surprised that my idea to improvise on THERESA'S EASEL CARDS (go to http://artful-whimsies.blogspot.com/) actually worked. I was afraid to really do much this afternoon the way the day has gone, so I was checking out different blogs. I happened to look at her blog (again-she does such beautiful work...) and I thought, gee, I wonder if a gift card holder would fit on that base...do I dare try a craft project?! I did-and it worked. I won't say it's my best work---but I love the CTMH All Decked Out Snowman set (p.42 of the winter catty). THis set offers so many variations-you can literally build just about any kind of snowman you want! Last year, when I had the Christmas party for our groupies, we had a 4 year old attend. Fields had a BLAST stamping and making snowmen! One had a top hat, one had earmuffs, the scraves varied...too much fun! The "warm wishes" seal comes from the Just for the Holidays set (p. 54 winter catty). I used CTMH inks and the paper-well, that was just from my stash. Ribbon was most likely Offray. I used Liquid Glass (p. 98) to give him some shine along with Martha Stewart glitters. This whole thing took me less than hour...and was completely WET when I was trying to take the pics! lol. I just really, really needed something to go right today-and this did! Hope you like the idea-and, if so, come take a class with Theresa and I. Until next time, happy stamping and scrapping. Blessings, Sharon
