I have a fantabulous friend and she just happens to be an SU demonstrator. So, this friend went on vacation so I could feed her cats and bunny. Not really...I think they wanted to go to Disney and I just happened to be available for pet feeding. So anywho...while I feed her cats and bunny, I typically get "paid" with an awesome priviledge of using her stamp stuff while she is gone. And wouldn't you know she had just taken delivery of a new SU hostess set called The More the Merrier. Oh my gosh! This is a great new set! It pains me that it is a Level 3 hostess set which means I will have to place a bajillion dollar order to earn it but oh, how I love it. I stamped many copies of each image on a variety of card stock colors and finishes so I would have a few stashed to play with over the next few months which brings us to today's card.
I decided that my favorite image is the snowmen. They are quite similar to the snowmen on an older, retired set but they are a little more refined this time around. Did I mention that they color like a dream? I decided that getting started on winter holiday cards had to be a good idea so I could justify making a card with snowmen in July. So, take a look...
Please pardon the "new look" resulting from my photo editing. We got a new computer and it uses Adobe. Can I just say the creator of Adobe needs to have a knot jerked in his/her giddy up? That program is the farthest thing from intuitive that I have EVER used. I am familiar with MS Picture It/Image Pro and know it backwards and forwards. I am less than happy that it is no longer made or supported and can't be loaded with Windows Vista. So, you'll just have to bear with me as I learn this horrible product since I have no choice if I want to continue my scramping endeavors.
I bet you didn't pop in to read about my computer issues so let me tell you about my card. Like I said before, the stamp image is from a new SU hostess set which also includes pumpkins, love birds, an acorn, a dotted border heart, cupcakes, and 4 adorable sentiments. I love it and I can promise that you will see more of it here. I'll list my supplies below and I don't think any of my technique is too hard to figure out so I will leave you with fond wishes for a lovely Tuesday and sincere thanks for reading my blog everyday. This is my 100th post! I can't believe that I have stuck with it and that I actually have people that read what I write on a regular basis. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
