This year, I remembered......
I managed to get the two together....
This is the card I will be "teaching" at our Annual Charity Pyjama Stamping Party on September 12th. Watch for an email coming soon and/or inquire about signing up at DAT'S.
I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend! I'll be back soon with some fun photos from our trip. Thanks for stopping by!
What I used:
stamps: CTMH - Father Christmas - D1449 - NEW, Vintage Christmas - D1166
papers: CTMH - garnet, ponderosa pine, cocoa
embellishents: gingham ribbbon from DAT'S, Burgundy stickles, Irridescent gold glimmer mist
I have tons of photos to share from our holidays, but need to get a little more organized, so for now I am just going to share the bookmarks that "Grandma" Joan and I made while at camp. Joan joined us at camp for the week, which was fantastic as she is just like a Great Grandmother to my boys and she is so fun! I introduced her to stamping about a year ago when she visited us, so thought I'd bring along a few things so we could play while at camp. This is one of the projects we worked on. I used some "recycled/hand-made" paper I've had in my stash for awhile on mine as well as a fun quote.
I showed Grandma Joan how to stamp the background for this one. This thing I find most difficult for bookmarks is not adding embellishments - it is so hard for me!!!
We did lots of reading at camp - I finished Diana Gabaldon's "The Fiery Cross" - two more to go in the series - I thoroughly enjoyed this one! I also read "Dances With Wolves", (I know it's been around forever, but I'd never read it) and "The short Second Life of Bree Tanner" by Stephenie Meyer. I am now working on "The Half-Blood Prince", trying to catch up to Chester who is almost finished "The Deathly Hallows". It was fun to compare notes about what everyone was reading while at camp. Chester has Papa reading the Harry Potter series, he is just starting "The Prisoner of Azkaban". I got my sis hooked on The Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon, so now that she has read a bit, we can discuss the characters - I just had to be careful not to say too much! Grandma Joan is also a reader, so she had some recommendations as well. I am reading the Beverley Cleary books with Pickle Pants, we worked through "Henry and the Clubhouse" while away and we're ready for the next one.
So what are you reading?
I'll be back on Sunday with Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge.
