A break from Christmas…

It’s not that I wanted to stray from my Christmas parade of card ideas… I’ve actually been stamping up a storm of new cards for next week’s card class — but I’ve been so busy stamping (well, and working — dang job always gets in the way!) that I haven’t had time to take photos of my new creations and upload them! Tomorrow. I promise! Anyway, today I thought I’d show you this cutie, which was actually a card design from one of my stamp-a-stacks this summer. It uses one of my favorite sets Chic Boutique (I have to pull that out again — Oh wait — we’re on Christmas!!! lol) I wanted to have a sewn looking so I ruffled the ribbon along the card using sticky strip (this was before I had my adventures in sewing so now I could probably really sew it!)

I’m also teaching a class there. Lots and lots of designing and prep work to do. For once I was a good girl and starting some designing and prepping WAY ahead of time for me — five days ahead! I know, that’s not really that good — but I’m working on it. I thought you might like to see some of the cards the folks attending my Holiday Stamp-A-Stack will be making on Wednesday. I still have a couple of spots open if you
