wishing you laughter...

Hello...I have a Cosmo-licious day for you...no surprise, eh?

Check it out...I scored on some new Circa 1934!!!  I literally picked it up at Ellen Hutson's...ordered it online and swung by there on my way home..gotta love that...and pssttt...got to meet up with THEE Ellen AND get a tour..now how fun is that?!!!

What's that?!  Yes, I finally ordered and ACTUALLY used my PTI Beautiful Blooms die...it's one thing to order, it is a whole 'nother thing to actually use them...why yes, that IS another Jenni Bowlin button...


I absolutely LOVE the latest Got Sketch challenge...


This is also for the latest Scrappy Saturday Challenge:

...Gotta love a Birthday Challenge...




Sheesh, I hope you all aren't getting sick of Mitten Weather because I'm not....I'm soooo going to be ready for the holiday's this year:)

This particular card was easy smeasy'ish...I just handstitched the 'Greetings Friends' element {& matted it on black cardstock}...yup, that my friend is handstitching..ugh, which took way too much time...BUT...I love how it looks...I'm really diggin' how the black just makes it pop!  The base is a wonderful Fabriano note card...love those...I popped on some Kaiser bling and called it good:)

I'm also entering this one into the Paper Crafts November 2010 Gallery Challenge, Merriest Holiday Cards!

lauren bergold said...

if the snowman card doesn't win EVERYTHING you enter it for (including CC guest DT!)... then there is a serious problem with the winner-calculation system, missus! you'll have to demand a recount!!! ♥♥♥
