A Christmas card AND Super Exciting News!
Hi Stampers. I'm trying to hit upon a Christmas card that is simple, as in easy peasy to create, but still fun and inexpensive to make. This card uses a Michael Studion G dollar stamp. I have sooo many of these stamps. The base is black cs and the mat is riding hood red SU embossed with an SU folder, Petals A Plenty. I used a Nestie for the tag shape and then some gingham bias tape...which I thought was ribbon when I bought it, but it works. I used a Viva Pearl pen in gold go make the cute dots that really make the tag pop. Button and bakers twine are from my stash. Easy peasy to color with Sharpie pen markers.
I like it...it's bright and festive. We'll see if I make more of these.
Now for the news. I have been waiting for more than six months to get a check from my government penison plan. It's a cumulative amount of dollars, owed to me from when I became 62 this past July. It's finally here, and right on time for me to take advantage of Cyber Monday sales. Goodie for me, I found the
Silhouette Cameo on sale at Overstock for $249.00.There was free shipping and somehow they have not been forced to charge tax, so it really was $249.00 exactly. I haven't seen it anywhere for this price, so I jumped on my Paypal account and hit all the submits fast. Overstock shipped it today via UPS. Not to advertise or anything, but I have bought sever crafty and home things from Overstock and find them to be a very good on-line company to order from.... so I should be doing the happy dance by Friday!. Am I ever excited! Put a Silhouette Cameo on your Christmas list. Google it for lots more info, or just use my link above. I did lots of research and in my book it could be compared to the Cricuit, but surpasses it in many ways. For one thing, no pricy cartridges.
