Gettin My Mojo Back

Hi there! Hope you are having a good weekend! Ours has been OK, work, work and more work but then tonight I got to play so I made some cards. Next weekend is the Christmas Open House and I so do not have enough cards to sell so I need to get back at it! I created 6 cards using my new Snowflakes background stamp from Rubbernecker Stamps. I love the quality of the stamps and so I am so going to order more! I love that they are mounted on cushion so that I can use them on my acrylic blocks and they will be much easier to store. I used Big & Bossy clear embossing ink with Ranger clear embossing powder to stamp the image onto white card stock then embossed and colored the card stock with Faded Jeans Distressed Ink. I also used perfect pearl mixed with water did a light mist on top. I used white ribbon from Michael's to tie around the card then mounted that on a silver metallic card stock then onto the white card. The finishing touch to the front was the silver tag I cut with my Cricut Expression. The inside sentiment is simply Merry Christmas and with that I have 6 cards that I think turned out really pretty! As always click on the photos to see view a larger size.

Home update: Yesterday the drywall folks finished up all three rooms and they were supposed to return today to paint but they didn't show. They didn't even return my call, not good! We will be searching for painters on Monday so hopefully we will get back on track soon.
