Special Delivery

Back for another round today. We spent the weekend out at Baby Creek so I got some crafting time in. This one is a Christmas card.



 The image is Special Delivery Snowman at From the Heart Stamps. I colored him with Copics to try to match the scrap that I found in my scrap box. I wanted to make something colorful. While cleaning up I found this self-adhesive red border tape and thought it would make a fun addition to this card. It all glittery! The base is white card stock with a blue card stock background for the image. Both the image and the background are die cut with MFT’s Inside and Out Stitched Rounded Squares Stax. I used the sketch from I {heart} Sketches with a Twist for inspiration. I also used the twist which was to hand-write a sentiment. I’m not the best at handwriting so I usually don’t try that myself. LOL!
I am entering these challenges:
It's been a busy weekend. Our refrigerator conked out at Baby Creek so we had to buy a new refrigerator on Friday. It was delivered yesterday. My hubby forgot to measure for height so we bought one that was too tall for the place it needed to sit. So he had to tear out two cabinets in order to get it into it's place. But I love the new frig. It's so much bigger than the old one. And it works!!! It has an ice maker but we still don't have water there since the cistern leaked and we lost all the water. Our new cistern is on order so hopefully it will be here soon so we can restore the water out there. We've been heating water for dishes and washing up. And only using water out of jugs. Hopefully we'll soon be back to normal out there. I have some other news to share but I have to make a card for someone before I share that news.  Have an awesome week.
