Use It or Lose It!

28 Dec

Hello Everyone!  I’ve had the laziest of days today, I spent the day playing around in my craft room randomly creating like mad!  I am so happy to be finished with Christmas cards I can’t seem to stop myself! LOL!  I managed to do five cards today (although I doubt I will get them all blogged).  I am so happy to be back playing along with the challenges I love to enter 🙂

On SplitCoast Stampers, Thursday’s is Ways to Use it Challenge day!  We are being challenged to dig into our gallery to our favorites and actually USE one to make a project.  Well it won’t be a shock to you that I decided to CASE Andrea Ewen!  I’ve had this card of hers: sitting there since JUNE just waiting for permission to CASE it! LOL!

Here’s my version of Andrea’s fantastic card….

The embossing folder is by Stampin’ Up! – Elegant Lines and my wonderful friend Yvonne was so lovely and kind to me and sent me some of these as I don’t own this folder, lord knows why as it is my absolute favorite!  I am going to have to order this one, one day soon but for now Yvonne has supplied me with some of these so I am happily creating with them.

So back to my card….  I am so random today LOL!  I feel like a goldfish, once around the tank and everything is new again! LOL!  I am on vacation from work and it is so nice to be able to do as little as you want to because you are not on any kind of schedule 🙂  Here’s a look at the whole card….

Well that’s it for me for this post!

I hope everyone had a wonderful and relaxing Christmas!

Lisa 🙂

    Very lovely Lisa. I really love that ribbon it is just so pretty! Is that another one of your dollar bin finds at Michaels?

      Thanks Joann Nope… the ribbon is from Michaels, but it’s in the regular rack (It’s one of my favorites tho…. For the stamp set, I bought it ages ago from Carsand Mosher… TPC Studio… You can take a look at it next time we are crafting together! Remind me and I will make sure to show it to you… it has loads of stamps so I use it often 🙂
