What do you do?

What do you do when you are stamping something and ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh *%&($%( *$(%&(  (*$% (**&**.  You know you get ink where you don't want it?

The ink came from the acrylic block I used to stamp the ornament hook.  If I had not already colored the snowman I probably would have started over but I really like how the snowman turned out.   So I just kept going and got creative!

This is my version of the Christmas card from Scrappin Sunday (click the link to see the others' cards).  In case you are wondering,  we make at least one Christmas card every month.

Scrappin' Sunday

Wait!  Shouldn't that be Scrappin' Saturday????  It was, but when puppy school was changed from Sunday to Saturday, Scrappin' Saturday changed to Scrappin' Sunday!  Obviously, by the picture below, Boomer (puppy) still NEEDS to go to school more to learn he can't eat socks.  Artemis (the cat) is just rolling her eyes at him.

Sunday the 23rd was the day to create.  Earlier in the month I decided my scrap bin was getting too full, so all the cards I have been making are from scrap paper.  Even some of the cards themselves are from the scrap bin!   I designed these two cards for the event!

Tim Holtz Stamp on the front and Hero Arts on the inside

Elizabeth Craft's Design "Happy Birthday" Die and outline stickers.  Inside sentiment Great Impressions stamp

And Sharon-Jane created this one to share. (Acutally, this the one she made yesterday because I didn't take a picture of the sample she made for class.)

Inky Antics stamps and honeycomb paper

Here are Stephanie cards:

And Debbie's

And Sharon-Jane's

And Tersita escaped without me getting pictures of her cards.

I am working on the snowman, I will add it when it is completed. 

And in case you are wondering, my scrap bin is till too full.  The card from the previous post (the one for the Ranger contest) was also created with paper in the scrap bin.  Well, the card base was created from a new 12 x 12 piece of paper.  So I added more to the scrap bin.  And I am working on several other cards too using scraps so maybe some day it will all the folders will fit nicely in the bin!   One can hope, right?

Unitl next time, have a fabulous time doing what you love!


Guess what today is?

Nope, it's not my birthday or anniversary.  It's the last day to enter Ranger Ink's February Color Palette Contest!  And I have a project to enter! 

Tim Holtz also has a challenge going on until March 22, 2013, using the Tattered Floral die.  This is my back-up plan for that challenge.  I have another idea I want to try first though.. . . . .   Have a fabulous day!

Even though

Even though I haven't been posting, some creativeness happened!  I thought I'd share some photos.  If you want details of anything in particular, let me know and I will supply them!

And 2 Gingerbread House and Train Building Days this year!

And even managed to create a shadow box in between bouts with the flu!
