...the Cuttlebug that is!
I actually bought one quite a while back, but I haven't used it much because of my limited collection of embossing folders and dies.
Well, Tuesday night I decided I just HAD to bust out with my new Christmas stamps from the Holiday mini...it would be a total shame to put them away until next year! So I knew I wanted to use the tree stamp, and I liked the word block, but hmmm colors, and maybe use up some of this mega HUGE mat stack of Christmas paper I bought on sale in 2005! Well, let me tell you after I chose Stampin' Up!'s Gable Green as my card base, and picked the pretty striped paper I knew embossing it with the Cuttlebug was MANDATORY! I used my latest JoAnn coupon and ran out to get the D-Vine Swirls embossing folder everyone but me has been using for ages, and these cute little cards practically created themselves!

I have a new DPS up for this week on SplitCoast!!! I'm posting them here too, simply because I want to share. I sincerely hope you like them and will put them to good use. I haven't scrapped them yet myself, and have big plans for last weeks sketch. I'm just waiting for the pictures to come in. I really need to finish up my Christmas cards though, so depending on how this weekend goes, there's a small chance I'll get a little scrapping in! TTFN!!!

You might remember I'm having an open house this weekend. I have been like a crazy woman with my head cut off!!! Holiday decorations...shopping...housework...kiddos -- CALGON TAKE ME AWAY! hahaha J/K
This little 6x6 is one of the make and take options this week end. It uses a mix of old and new. The background was stamped with a hostess set that will be featured in the new catalog, and the patterned paper is currently available. It's called Designer Prints and comes in several pretty patterns and colors. Other projects we'll be doing include a fun holiday card that features a retiring set, and a little candle!
I made several paper ornaments and decorated this "Charlie Brown" tree, these are my giveaways for attendees!
I didn't get a chance to snap a pic of the doorprises...I'm headless, remember? Anyway, it's going to be fun!!!

Happy, happy Friday everyone!
I posted a new sketch challenge today, and here it is for your delight and amazement! *tee hee* But seriously, I'm pretty excited about it. I also posted a little twist this week....I would like you to scrap about friendship and use a quote or a poem on your page!
I found a couple of websites to assist with quotes about friendship. You can use one of them, or feel free to use one of your own!!! Scrap pictures of someone truly dear to you, and either upload on SCS, or post a link to your page in my comments. I love to see the variety of creations that result from one idea! I'll be scrapping my own version this weekend, so watch for it!
