Happy Saturday stampers, scrappers & crafters!
Tons of rain! A great weekend to stay in and make cards and put away all of the Christmas decorations. I do enjoy having the pretty decorations about, as they are so dear and warm to me. Slowly each treasure will be wrapped back up in tissue paper and stored away until next year. I have been procrastinating this, so this is the weekend it shall happen!
Most importantly though time to create! Beate's challenge, the 3 birthday cards that need to get completed and my thank you cards from Christmas! It doesn't sound like the decorations have a chance of getting put away after all! (wink)!
DH will be back home again tom arrow for a few days, I will let him rest a bit then ask for his help with the storage of the decorations. Much better plan, don't you think?
The card...this sweet heat embossed pear tree with the Partridge is just so cute! I figured there was no stamping law stating my Partridge in a pear tree can only be used during the holidays! So a lavender pear tree it is! My daughter gave me a heat gun and embossing powders and a "embossing buddy" for Christmas. I had really only been doing dry embossing with my CB. This is fun! More stuff and more mess, but great results! Very cool indeed!
In the picture you can't really tell that the image is heat embossed, but it is! I used Stickles on the pears. The pp is from a Costco stack, scallop punch (Marvy) Ribbon $ bin M's.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by for a visit. Deb
