Getting back to normal
We came back from NS on Tuesday (in between snow storms). We have been busy the last week re-organizing and cleaning and making room for the new toys and things. It was nice having the time to get some of these things done since it was so busy before Christmas.
I didn't get a chance to do any stamping until Saturday night and I couldn't wait to play with my new sets that I had pre-ordered. The one used here is called A Beautiful Thing and the paper is Bali Breeze.
I first punched the scalloped border with the small corner rounder and then stamped the flowers in Purely Pomegranite ink in the scallops (they don't quite fit perfectly but it is pretty close). I then stamped the centers in Pumpkin Pie ink. On the white piece I stamped the circles in Apricot Appeal and then stamped the verse in Purely Pomegranite. For the flower I colored it with an Apricot Appeal marker and then darkened the center a bit with Pumpkin Pie marker. The brad is an Ice Rhinestone circle brad.
Oh and the stitching on the Tempting Turquoise piece is done with the mat pack. I punched every other hole on 2 rows of the template and then faux stitched with my white gel pen.
This is what our front step looked like when we got up Wednesday morning. We had gone in the back door when we came home Tuesday evening and hadn't shoveled the step off so this is what we got in the week we were gone. The kids were pretty excited to see so much snow and Ian has lots of hills to play on :)
