Hello! I'm back, and feel so rested and ready to get back to my desk!
Hopefully, your holidays were as full of blessings as ours were!
I promised to tell you all about it when I got back,
so here goes...
Wow...what an amazing Christmas week we had.
Our DD and her fiance (and grandoggie Rosie), our DS and grandoggie Wimpy, were all home for a few days. Our family celebration began in St. Louis. We went to a wonderful Scottish restaurant, and had traditional Scottish appetizers, food, and drink. Yum! Wonderful food, indeed, and so much fun to try something we'd never had! Next, DD and her fiance had purchased tickets for us all to go to the Fabulous Fox Theater to see a live production of Beauty and the Beast. Oh my goodness! It was beautiful. We hated to see it end. DS had reserved amazing rooms for us at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, overlooking the Arch, downtown St. Louis, and the River. We visited in one of the rooms that had a full living room and kitchen, and finally crashed for the night. The next morning, we headed back down the highway for a couple of blissful, relaxing days with our loved ones. Sadly, the holidays came to an end, and after a trip back to St. Louis to the airport yesterday, everyone is back home, either in Colorado, or California. It is certainly quiet here!
I have been crafting today, but can't show you what I've been doing, as it's for some new release
postings that will come in a few days!
However, I do have another publication reject, and I'd love to share with you.
I had seen this drawer box tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers, and thought that it would be fun to add an easel card to the top of it. Inside the drawer, is a full set of matching A-2 size note cards. The background was created by laying a large piece of lace over the ivory cardstock, and spritzing with red Glimmer Mist. The image was heat embossed, and the color was painted on using the Glimmer Mist.
Here is the box:
And here are the cards:
Supplies used: Glimmer Mist, Gina K. Designs Ivory Pure Luxury CS, Sentiment from Create with TLC, Image by Stampland Chicago, Spellbinder's Fancy Tags, Kaiser Craft Pearls, Spellbinder Oval and Scalloped Oval Dies, Offray Ribbon, Dimensional Squares, Martha Stewart Border Punch, Marvy Circle Punch, Ranger Black Embossing Powder Ultra Fine. Black Bazzill Basics CS.
So very sorry about the blurry photos. I don't know what happened to make them so fuzzy.
Have a wonderful evening!
I'll be back very soon with something special. I can't wait to spill the beans!
Hugs and blessings,
Food for thought: If someone gave you a nickname that was descriptive of your character, would you be proud of it?
