Happy Holidays


Hello!  I hope you had a great weekend!  My daughter's soccer game turned out to be a little less of a slaughter than I had predicted because our team played great defense:)  Also, my daughter got the only goal against the other team and she was sooooo excited!!!  We were super proud of her!

I had a very busy crafty weekend.  I had tons of fun playing with Amber Ink images and today I get to show you my first project!  I used the super fabulous set 'Tis The Season To Be Pretty.  The thing I love most about the Amber Ink sets is that they come with so many fun elements~for example this set comes with 13 images!!!  I also found that it's fun to interchange the sets which I will show you with one of my future projects:) 

For my card I printed out this gorgeous lady, the tree, and two of the ornaments.  I cut everything out and set up my scene.  I used Basic Grey Jovial dp, but Amber Ink also carries some beautiful ipaper that I used on the rest of my projects.  I will show you my favorite ipaper tomorrow:)  The sentiment comes from the PTI set Signature Christmas. 

Well, my kids are out of school this week, and my hubby is home most of the week.  My parents are coming down for Thanksgiving so I'm looking forward to a lot of  family time:)  Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
