Hello stampers! I found some cool new stuff! I haven't had much time to play, but this is what I threw together with an image that I colored in awhile ago. The stamps are from a mini set called Patio from Hanna Stamps. Ha... that would be just like me to set down my drink, then not remember where I put it later.... or better yet, a bug or something would fall out of the plant and mix in with the ice cubes! I'd take a drink before I noticed, then I'd have to scream and run around spitting out my drink to irritate the heck out of my husband. He hates it when I scream..... unless I'm dying. But, if I had swallowed a bug, I'd HAVE to scream...ew!
Oh.... back to the card and the cool stuff... sorry. So, have you seen the new Cuttlebug stuff? DANG, had to order more embossing folders, but now they have embossing strips! I'm not sure that is what they are called, but they are COOL. See them here. Okay, so they are called borders. LOVE the new borders!! I used the one called Frills to do the embossed flowers down the side and bottom. See the words? OMGosh.. how cool is this? You get an embossing folder, AND the die cut sayings! I used the one called Friends Forever. I NEED more!! I'm SO digging these new things from Cuttlebug!!
Okay, my other new thing is the new colors of Shimmerz Paint! Beeswax, Rustic Red, and Sagebrush.....ooooooo aren't they gorgeous? I used the Sagebrush in the tree and the Beeswax for the drink and the bird seed. I also used the Angel Wings for the beard on the.... what do you call those yard things? Yah, that elf dude.
Okay, so my kids are thinking they need to eat AGAIN. So, I'll be back later to include the recipe. This week, we are busy getting ready to start school. Today the twins have their annual eye exams. Baylor is being fitted for contact lenses. His brother got them earlier in the year because he cannot keep his glasses... they disappear into a black mysterious hole never to be seen again. He's done really well with them, and wouldn't ya know it, he can see. Seeing is a good thing in the 6th grade right? Baylor's glasses look like he's been in a war zone and even he is embarrassed to start school in them. So, today is the day, he is thrilled to start wearing contacts just in time for school.
I'M COMING!!!! Sorry.... omgosh, just a few more days till the big yellow bus comes! Just a few more days......
See ya later friends, thanks for stopping by!
