NY 3 - PA 2

So, is everyone watching the World Series?
Even though my beloved Redbirds aren't playing, it's so exciting to watch 'good' baseball being played! These games have been very close, and nervewracking! I'm ready for spring training to begin!


Okay, enough about baseball!

I took a few minutes tonight, and sat down with this week's sketch from Stamp TV.
Once again, I pulled out Theresa Momber's new set, "Very Merry Christmas".
I used only the snowflakes and one of the sentiments.
I chalked the embossing done with my Cuttlebug folder, and just edged everything with my trusty Sakura Starburst pen! Super quick, and easy!
Hope you like it.
It did not photograph very well and I apologize for that. Something about taking pictures at bedtime, you think??? Anyway, the sentiment looks crooked, and it's not, up on the left, it looks like something is on the card, and it's just a couple of holly leaf berries, etc....looks much better in real life!

Speaking of bedtime, the alarm is set for 5:30, so it will be a short night. I'm off to try to catch a few z's. Have a great evening!

What's the difference between a bad golfer and a bad skydiver???

A bad golfer goes, WHACK, "Darn...!"

A bad skydiver goes "Darn", WHACK!

This is really pretty. I love the embossed background. I had a hard time with photography too. I am also very glad that I'm not a golfer or skydiver. You crack me up:)

Very pretty card. I know what you mean about the picture doesn't do the card justice. Have a good one.


Great card Patti - I really like the sketch you used. splitcoast has a neat sketch for today that I would like to try.

Jim is 'getting' better, still not there. I'm all well now (matter of opinion I guess!) Kids are dropping like flies at school but attendance isn't that bad yet. Off to a conference Sun - Tues so will be out of town for a bit. Miss talking to you, not as much fun calling MLC anymore! (tears). Have a great day.

What a lovely Xmas card. I love the embossed background. I've watched a little bit of the World Series, I'm really hoping for the PA team to win! I always love the underdog!

I didn't watch the Series. I was, however, rooting for the Phillies. Around here, we're for whomever is playing the Yanks. ha!

BTW, I'm so glad to see your thoughts for the day back!
