Hey Everybody! I've been a little bit MIA haven't I? Well, I'm ba-aack! Sorry to disappear on you for so long I had a lot going on. Mostly, I was sick. First with pneumonia, then with four or five other colds that my immune system was not strong enough to fight off after having pneumonia for a month (possibly three because I had a "funny" cough for two months before I actually went to the doctor's). Then I had a week to get ready for a craft fair that I committed to right before I got sick. It was my first craft fair and I was stressing out! More about that later!
I'm so glad to finally be back and playing along with the What Will You Stamp challenge blog again this week. This week's challenge is Christmas Pines and it's one of my favorite bundles from the Stampin' Up! holiday catalog. Funny enough, I actually made this card.... maybe two months ago. I took a quick pic and I think I sold it at my craft fair last weekend so no more pics-sorry!
I used Soft Sky ink to stamp the stars in the background and I embossed the sentiment in gold after watercoloring with Emerald Envy. I love the way the Emerald Envy looks when watercolored because the color stays bold and brilliant even in the lighter layers of color. I used green and gold metallic thread to make a big, loppy bow and I love the way it came out.
If you have this stamp set I hope you'll join us this week over at the What Will You Stamp challenge blog. If you don't have it and want a closer look here ya go!
