Skating By....

Coffee of the Day - Pumpkin Spice

Well it is Monday. and boy howdy, has it ever been a Monday. feel like Garfield the cat and pulling a 'bah humbug, send the lasagna' to this day in proper Monday fashion, but hopefully it will pull itself out of the dumpster soon. ever have days like that? I would venture to say we all do from time to time. I had to go into my craft room and crank on the Puddle Of Mudd CDs. you know it's a rough one when I feel the need for some heavy head banger music! ha!

anyhow, my lovely friend Tracey, who is the artist behind The Stamping Boutique as well as one of the stamp designers over at Unity, has very kindly invited me and some fabulous people to join her with an upcoming magazine publication this Christmas. I am so excited about it! :)  she also needed a quick project made with one of her cute new stamps at Unity, the Snow Peeps. I told her I would be happy to help out, so the following card is what I came up with.

I have used Snow Peep Kurt and one of his cutey sayings. I thought to keep it fairly generic so that it could be sent to anyone during the winter, not just at Christmas. it also could just as easily go to a guy as to a girl. Papers are from the Basic Grey Aspen Frost collection. his skates are painted with shimmerz, snow dots are accented with Viva Decor cream pearl pen, and stickles covers the snow, snow ball, and little bits of our Snow Peep friend. the kraft snow flakes are sprayed with glimmer mist for a sparkle. Corduroy brad is SU!, as is the linen thread. a touch of faux stitching with my white gel pen accents the horizontal layer.

Don't forget to enter the blog candy contest to win a set of 'Christmas Tag' stamps. click here for the post.
Thanks for stopping by! See you tomorrow! :)
