and welcome to the
first blog post of 2018!
Hope everyone had a good start to the
We sure did, with frigid temperatures
outside we were snug inside
and fell right asleep before midnight.
I know it doesn't sound like much fun
but it is all good,
we always open our bottle of
Champagne the next day and
have it with our traditional
New Years day meal
"Cabbage, Boudin and Black-Eyed Peas"
And since the weather was so..o cold I also had some
extended playtime in my stamp-room
and all the "Very Merry Thank You" cards were made and mailed
before I had to go back to work on January 2nd.
The card was cut with the Spellbinder "Botanical Bliss" die set.
Holly leave is the Sizzix "Holly & Berries" die.
Sentiment from Stampin'Up! "From the Heart" set.
The background panel was dry embossed with Sizzix 3-D
Winter Snowflake folder.
I decided to reuse some of the elements
of the Christmas card and carry it over to the thank you card.
The snowflake embossing folder for the background,
holly leaves and colored card stock
are exactly the same in both cards.
My goal was to accomplish the feeling that they
belong together as a Holiday set and
I think it turned out fairly well,
what do you think?
And last but not least,
with a few days off and being stuck inside
I finished the "Star Baby Blanked".
This one is for a dear friends "First" Grand-baby
due to arrive in February.
Can you guess what they are having???
I love the color and yarn so much I will have
to make another one,
this one for our
due to arrive in March!!!
Well looks like 2018 will be an exciting year
with Grand-babies everywhere!
Hope your year will be filled with lot's of
excitement too but most of all
peace, health, happiness and lot's of
Happy New Year
thank you so much for stopping By!
