A Simple Christmas Card

Here is a very simple Christmas card I made for my stamp a stack class. It's very easy to reproduce, definitely a 10 minute card. First I stamped the snowman from Snow Much Fun in black Staz-On ink. Then I used a blender pen to color him in. I used Cherry Cobbler, Lucky Limeade, Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie. Then I punched him out with a 1-3/4" punch and layered him on top of a 2-3/8" scallop circle. The card base is 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Lucky Limeade folded in half. I adhered a piece of 4" x 5-1/4" Very Vanilla to that, and a piece of patterned paper 4" x 2" to that. The patterned paper is from the Festival of Prints designer series paper stack, which is only $6.95!  Above it I adhered a piece of Crumb Cake seam binding around the card. I stamped a sentiment from More Merry Messages in Basic Black. You can purchase any of these supplies from my website at sweetpiecesbyme.stampinup.net.

Signed up with Stampin' Up!...I'm back! Hello Blog Candy!!

Wyatt is almost 6 months old. I think I am finally getting a handle on his "schedule" but it is difficult. He doesn't sleep much...but I'm finally trying to get him to have at least 1 nap a day. I really try for 2. Some days he is the most happy boy. Some days he is kinda whiny...teething I'm sure. But no teeth poking out yet. 
We've had a busy couple of months, getting used to a baby...and moving!! Yep, my husband got promoted to Manager finally and we had to move to Antioch (or near there). It's pretty hard to get used to things because all my friends and family are in the Sacramento area. So I am re-starting up my Stampin' Up! business in this area and we'll see how it goes. :) I hope to share my love of stamping and crafting with everyone I meet! I will throw myself into my business and raising my son. Making new adventures and having new experiences. He really is a great little boy and a sweetie. Being a mommy is the best job!! Then being a Stampin' Up demonstrator. ;)

So I've been promising a blog candy, so HERE IT IS!!! You can win these goodies here! Just comment on this post and I'll pick a random comment on December 15th. Some of the goodies are American Crafts ribbon, a Glue Glider Pro Tape Gun, Fancy Pants rub-ons, SEI ribbon and an album made by me! So please comment so you have a chance to win! There will be more blog candy to come, this is just the beginning! :)
