Magic in the Air again - Paper Cupcake challenge - Die Cuts
Hello everyone - another busy week and weekend - we were away in Vancouver visiting our son and his lovely girlfriend. As I am posting this I am sitting in the hotel room - I thought I had better do it now as I am not sure what time we will get home tomorrow night - we are supposed to have snow on the pass tomorrow and apparantly lots of it - so that kind of makes me nervous - I may not be in any mood to post a card tomorrow night - anyways the challenge this week is to use die cuts and any acquired image from Paper Cupcakes digi stamps. The challenge is over at There's Magic in the Air - you just may want to play along for a chance to win a prize. Even if you don't get a chance to play along you may just want to check out some of the other cards made by the very talented design team. My card uses the adorable Love Penguins illustrated by the very talented Nina May. I used my cricut to cut out the snowflakes and my sizzix die cut for the "Brrr" word. I colored the image using my copic markers and the blue and purple paper is all from christmas stash pile. I added some white netting to the background and it just didn't jump out the way I wanted it to so I added some lace overtop and I found that was what it had needed. I also used my MS garland border punch for the background - I really do love this cute penguin image. Thank you so much for stopping by to visit my blog - your comments are really appreciated! I hope you have a great week and by the time this post is up I hope I am home safe and sound and back in my craft room - I really do miss playing in my craft room when we go away - I always am so happy to be back home - I don't travel well - I don't sleep well in any other bed but my own - I am a real homebody - I love my crafts and I love to cook and clean my house - I know I actually said "I love to clean my house" - but really I do - I love the satisfaction I get when it is all done. Well enough rambling - hope your Monday is fantastic!!!
Your stamping friend, Debbie
