Home Sweet Home
Every Tuesday over on the Crafty Secrets member company forum on SCS, a new challenge is posted, this is #61. I will be the hostess on April 6th, so I hope you can join us! This week was a theme challenge, and it was HOME. I just went straight to my Homemade Image and Journal Notes booklet and tore out this pretty image, and built a card around it. No stamping here.
The base is Bazzill Canvas Maraschino Red. I get all my Bazzill at Creative Cuts and More. I also got the Basic Gray rub on I used here there. And the die cut buckle. I like to ask for the buckle to be cut in chipboard and a cardstock. Then I run them through my X Xyron and glue them together. They are sturdy and can handle whatever treatment you can dish out.
I finished this card off with a few shots of my favorite Chestnut Brown Glimmer Mist.
We're off for a snow day today. BIG spring blizzard-for the Panhandle. Personally, I think they should call snow days STAMP DAYS, because that's what I always do. I know some people probably catch up on laundry and work on the house. Not me. Life's short. My boys trash the house minutes after it's clean, so I prefer to stamp. I do a lot less shrieking about spots, crumbs and clutter when I've been stamping than when I've been cleaning. Trying to keep a clean house turns me into a shrew, so I just take care of the basics. Now how's that for a pile of persuasive rhetoric?
