Gosh...I feel like I've been MIA on the blog cause I have so many things going on. I'm still working on getting those Toronto class cards done....I gotta say, I'm a little angst cause I usually like to have that done and out of the way at least a week in advance! Images are done, and colors are finalized so contact Emily to see what colors you will be needing.
This morning I made my VERY FIRST batch of cabbage rolls! Can you believe I am of PURE polish decent and this is my FIRST batch of cabbage rolls! I guess I've always relied on my mother or grandmother to do it, but the time has come that I need to take over the tradition! All I am gonna say about the whole ordeal is that I need to clean my oven! Note to self....use a larger roaster and/or less liquid! (AND thank God for self cleaning ovens!)
After that live and learn on the cabbage rolls I headed on over to Paper Pickle for their Holiday Open house! Kell manned the make and take table, Kim was busy at the cash, Deb answered any and all questions and yours truly did a copic demo! I got to catch up with some old friends (Bonnie and Brenda!) and met some new ones....Hi Kate!...plus I had my BFF Pauline hanging out most of the afternoon. I had soooo much fun!
That leads me to my card of the day! After getting home from the open house I whipped up this card with Gifty Tree...okay...I'll fess up, I didn't exactly WHIP IT UP cause I'm NOT a fast card maker. But I did color it and get it all put together all in one day so that has got to get me some points! LOL!
I stamped it on Bellas bestest paper, coloured it entirely in copics and added some 'stuff' for snow. I have no idea where I bought this stuff but it is like little tiny squares of shiney white confetti. The paper I used is some Scenic Route from last year and I love it's retro look with this funky tree. The tag was created with a spellbinders die, stamped with the merry holidays sentiment and tied to the lamp with some fine white and gold ribbon that I picked up at pickle.
To finish it off, of course I added lots of glitter around the star and ornaments, and popped those ornaments with a nice thick glob of ranger glossy accents. It is a very tactile card!
Oh ya....there is still time....GO SEE THE MICHAEL JACKSON MOVIE! you won't be sorry!
