Christmas Cards

I used a new stamp set (new to me) Holiday Line up to create this card. I cased this card from Dawn's Stamping Thoughts. She has such cute ideas. I used whisper white, black, and marina blue ink and cardstock. I had bought the ribbons a while back at Hobby Lobby (my favorite store). The punches used were 1 and 1and one fourth, and then the scallop punch. I really like this stamp set and I can't wait to make more with this set.

Crafting Again

I have just figured out how to use my Design Studio for my Cricut and I love it. I know that I will probably have to upgrade to a gypsy at some point and time, however, I enjoyed playing with it this weekend. I created a really cute backpack with George and Platin Schoolbook. I also made a couple of Christmas because it is never too early to begin making those. I am hoping to order some of the new Stampin Up stamps soon and begin playing with them. We have had a busy day today. We went to Sunday School and Church, out to eat at Snappy Tomato Pizza (which is really good!), and then baseball practice at 2. It is still so very hot, I wish for cooler weather soon!
