eat & drink...


Hello!

Live blogging here...a girl can do that when she wakes up at 2 am (vicious sleep cycle that I'm on).  That gives me plenty of time to clean up my desk top and whip up this card:


All the goodies on this wee card base {3.5 x 4} is compliments of the Two Peas sale that they had during Thanksgiving.

Amy Tangerine...what's NOT to love?

Her collections are consistently fabulous.

My design is compliments of 



Did you see that Pantone picked Emerald as the 2013 Color of the Year?!



I couldn't be more thrilled as green is my FAV!

Thought I'd share a pic of my crafting in process....


This was taken on Sunday as I was slinging together the bulk of my 80 cards.  

See that Stamp-a-ma-jig?  

I lost the $%^&* plastic panel and was trying to attempt to use Paper Smooches stamp packaging as a MacGyver type substitute...absolute fail-a-roni.  Boooooooo...I had thee most adorable wood stamps to use for my cards but realistically, using a stamp-a-ma-jig for mass producing is not the most time efficient.

I'm thisclose to finishing my cards...I have about 10 more to go but decided to take this morning off from writing.  I wrote out a bunch after work last night.  How about you?  Are you done?

Just a reminder that the linky for Sebastian closes tomorrow at noon!

  3. I have been up since 2:15 (well you know that isn't far from my 'normal' wake up time! lol!) -- from a bad dream... and ever since I have been trying to rationalize that it isn't real... lol... gotta love that!! :)

    I loveeeeeeee your card!! LOVING those colors!!

    And I refuse to answer your question on the Christmas cards -- I have actually had some people mad at me for being done so early ... and actually be ugly to me about it... *sigh* -- such is life I guess....

  4. Great card! Must be all that creativity that puts us both on the same sleeping schedule. Oh I love that glittery twine I see sitting on your table. Who makes it?

  5. Fabulous card, Amy, love that you are using up some of your new! I love the colors! No, I haven't finished my cards, I took time out to do my shopping for the grandchildren. Sitting at 30 outside this morning. Baby that is cold for us! Have a wonderful Tuesday!

  6. Would it be terrible to say I rarely hand out my own Christmas cards?? By the time I am ready to hand them out, I have no handmade ones left. So I go buy a pack from... Walmart. I do - it's the ugly truth!

  23. had to laugh at your 2:00 in the morning crafting because that was what I was doing last night...making cards until 2:30 am. My hubby thought I was nuts, but I just never seem to get to them during normal hours.

  24. Fail-a-roni? I SO WANT THIS EXPRESSION TO CATCH ON. Not that I am happy it happened to you. Your sleep cycle sounds like my 12 year old's right now. And he feels the need to come wake us up every night & tell us about how he can't sleep.

  33. LOVE this card- and the color of the year is so YOU! Bummer on the stamp-a-ma-jig- but I think you did a smashing job with what you chose in it's place! *wink*
