Because my fellow citizens lose their little furry minds this way when it rains, I had to be extra cautious on my dark cold walk and couldn't walk in the walk/bike lanes (which are much easier on your feet and joints when you walk 9 miles) and had to walk on the sidewalk.
At the most heavily traveled part of my walk, despite the fact that it was raining, the sprinklers were on, shooting straight across the sidewalk from both sides. I had no choice but to walk through thirty yards of freezing cold water. Add some 20 mph winds, and you can imagine how fun and cold the rest of my walk was.
I'm STILL cold! Brr...
So a winter creation for you today! I just got to play with some of the Holiday Nestabilities for a Product Focus at Splitcoast and I'm HOOKED!
I made so many fun things with these ornament dies it's just crazy!
For starters, I made a card for a Hope You Can Cling To challenge to use only sentiments as the stamped image. I don't have any of those big collage stamps, so I thought I'd make my own. I used Soft Sky and some of the greetings from Star Studded Season (retired) to build my background. And yes, I used my Stamp a Ma Jig :)
Then, I just cut out multiples of the ornament, by nesting the dies, to get the 3D center, and I cut one large one for the main part of the ornament. For the center part, I just folded each one in half and stuck them together. The paper is that gorgeous Candy Cane Christmas with the fun glittered stripe on one side.
The ribbon on top is May Arts silk ribbon. I finished it off with rhinestones. What's cool is it will fold flat to mail!
Hope you are warm and toasty today! Don't forget - there's still time to play in the Hope You Can Cling to Challenges and win some AMAZING prizes, including a $250 Etsy shopping spree! Details here.
